Fisker Still Very Much Alive, Shows Ocean SUV in L.A.


Fisker seems to have many lives, and the small brand led off the L.A. Auto Show’s main media day with the debut of its Ocean SUV.

The Ocean uses a solar roof to provide electricity for its battery-powered motor, has a system that distributes the right amount of torque to each wheel to maintain traction, is made from sustainable materials (including a vegan interior), and can even power your house for up to seven days in an emergency.

It also has a 17.1-inch interior touchscreen that can go from landscape to portrait mode and show movies, a dedicated smartphone app, an available self-parking system, and a limo mode for second-row passengers (gives them control over audio and climate controls for the rear, among other things).

There will be four trims, with the cheapest retailing for a bit under $38K and the most-expensive starting at just under $69K. The base trim is a single-motor front-drive unit while the rest are dual-motor AWDs. The base model has a range of 250 miles, while the others have at least 340 miles of range.
