The company will showcase Fisker Ocean with advanced driver-assistance systems (“ADAS”) features at CES, offering state-of-the-art safety to drivers and passengers. Called Fisker Intelligent Pilot, the ADAS platform integrates four types of sensors: an industry-leading surround-view camera suite, a camera-based driver-monitoring system, ultrasonic technology, and a Digital-Imaging Radar System that Fisker expects to be first to market when the Fisker Ocean begins production in November 2022.
2022 has kicked off at an amazing pace, with continued laser focus on delivery of the Fisker Ocean as priority one. We are now into the next-level prototype build phase and progressing through our vehicle testing and certification plan. Our extremely dedicated and focused team is working closely with all our suppliers to stay on track to deliver the first Fisker Oceans this year in November. Amid global semiconductor and other supply constraints, we work regularly in collaboration with key partners to identify and mitigate any issues.Henrik Fisker, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Fisker

Fisker will stage the European debut of its all-electric Fisker Ocean SUV at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona later this month.
The Fisker Ocean Model will start deliveries in certain European countries and North America following the vehicle’s start of production in November 2022. Fisker recently opened a European office in Munich and is building a brand experience centre in Germany, with other European countries to follow. Fisker recently announced a comprehensive plan to deliver high-quality service, including Fisker Mobile Service, at multiple locations in European launch countries.
Mobile World Congress runs from 28 February–3 March 2022 and attendees are welcome to visit the show stand to see the Fisker Ocean in person.
“I couldn’t be more excited to unveil the Fisker Ocean in Spain and present its unique combination of performance, value and technology to the European media and prospective owners. I’m particularly thrilled to announce segment-leading range for the Fisker Ocean”.CEO Henrik Fisker
“Europe is essential to our company as we work towards the start of production in November at a carbon-neutral factory in Austria”, he added. “We aim to make the world’s most sustainable vehicle and to start deliveries in Europe this year. Ultimately, we expect to sell 60,000 units annually in the region”.
Fisker is developing a comprehensive and well-integrated European strategy. In 2021, the Manhattan Beach, California-based startup established an office in Munich and is rapidly adding staff to serve a fast-growing electric vehicle market.
The company is constructing its first European-based brand experience centre in Munich, with plans for additional centres in other European countries. The company’s industry-leading warranty will be supported by service centres throughout the region. For service, the company is offering at-home vehicle pick-up, or Fisker Mobile Service, for customers who prefer that skilled technicians come to them.
Finally, in 2021, Fisker created its Fisker Magic Works and chose England as the division’s headquarters. This branch of the Fisker organisation will develop special editions of the company’s vehicles alongside new, high-performance projects combining sustainability with Henrik Fisker’s commitment to beautiful, emotional design.
