Fisker Ocean gets 440 mile/707km WLTP range rating in Europe

The Fisker Ocean has crossed another item off its checklist ahead of its debut later this spring, achieving the highest range rating of any battery electric SUV currently on sale in Europe. According to the automaker the Ocean Extreme has received a combined 440 mile (707km) WLTP range rating in Europe.

This figure exceeds Fisker’s estimates for its top of the line model, which it had pegged at around 390 miles (627km). Fisker says the 440 mile range is enough for the Ocean to drive from London to Glasgow or Paris to Frankfurt with range to spare. It is worth noting that WLTP range ratings are always higher than North American EPA ratings, sometimes as much as 20%, so expect a lower number when it is certified in the US and Canada.

“From the beginning, we planned the Fisker Ocean to deliver the highest level of design, sustainability, innovation, usability, and range. This achievement is a major milestone for everyone at Fisker, and we are delighted the range exceeds our initial calculations,” CEO Henrik Fisker said.

Fisker says the Ocean should receive European homologation by April 28, 2023, putting them on track to begin deliveries this spring. To support the launch several Fisker Centers+ will open in Vienna and Copenhagen on April 11, 2023, with more location opening across Europe and the US in 2023.

The automaker has high hopes for their first electric vehicle (EV), with a targeted production of 40,000 units in 2023. The Ocean, which boasts parts crafted from vegan and recycled materials, has earned the distinction of being the most sustainable electric vehicle in the world. This unique feature has appealed to over 63,000 customers who have reserved the Ocean since its announcement in 2019.

While the Ocean’s affordability, priced at $37,499, may have played a role in attracting many of these customers, it’s worth noting that the initial production run of the Ocean will be limited to the Fisker Ocean ONE, a special edition that starts at almost twice the base price at $68,999.
