Fisker Inc., passionate creator of the world’s most sustainable electric vehicles and advanced mobility solutions – today announced details for the first wave of its global brand experience centers. Starting in the first half of 2022, the company will open its inaugural center in Los Angeles, followed by a European center in Munich. Fisker Brand Experience Centers will offer prospective customers the opportunity to see and experience the company’s vehicles, as well as speak with product experts on hand.

Following Los Angeles and Munich, the company plans to open at least four additional centers in London, New York, Miami and Copenhagen through the second half of 2022. The Fisker Ocean will make its global debut at the upcoming 2021 LA Auto Show in November, with production starting Nov. 17, 2022. Production prototype testing will begin this year. 

The Fisker Ocean will enter the U.S. market at a starting MSRP of $37,499 (excluding EV-related subsidies) and below €32,000 in Germany (including taxes and EV-related subsidies), offering compelling, high-value option packages to customers across the Ocean’s entire price range. 

Including fleet orders from companies such as Credit Agricole Consumer Finance, Onto and Viggo, Fisker has more than 62,000 hand-raisers and 17,300 paid reservations for the Ocean. The Fisker reservation system, accessed via the Fisker App and Fisker website, was set up in late 2019, enabling prospective customers to place a vehicle reservation with the flexibility to cancel at any time. Each vehicle reservation requires a $250 deposit with a 10% charge ($25) to cover third-party and administrative costs in the event of a cancellation.

Fisker Inc. is an American electric vehicle company headquartered in California and publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the FSR ticker symbol. The co-founders are the largest shareholders, with the majority of the shareholder base located in the United States.

Fisker Inc. has the stated aim to lead on Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) – and to produce the world’s most sustainable vehicles.
