The EV startup Fisker announced Wednesday, a couple of hours before its Q2 2022 earnings results, the arrival of the second Ocean Model to Los Angeles. The blue version arrived on July 25 allowing the company to start the road tests ahead of the mass production and the first deliveries scheduled for November in Graz, Austria.

The company will report its second quarter earnings results later today (August 3) after the market closing and a conference call will follow where Fisker’s management team will answer the most upvoted question from shareholders.

The company’s CEO Henrik Fisker, COO/CFO Dr. Geeta Gupta, and the CTO Burkhard Huhnke will answer about Fisker‘s rollout plans for the first model starting in November, the beginning of test drives for the Ocean model, an update on the reservation numbers, and more.

In early June, the company announced that has surpassed 50,000 reservations for the model with the base Sport trim priced at $37,499 before incentives. The Extreme trim level is priced at $68,999 and delivers an estimated range of over 350 miles.

CEO Henrik Fisker recently said that the model is the world’s most sustainable car based on the number of recycled & biodegradable materials used in its production but also considering the CO2-neutral factory.

Recently, Fisker announced the hiring of the former BMW executive Alpay Uguz as Senior Vice President of Global Manufacturing. Previously, Uguz as served BMW as the manager of SUV plant in Spartanburg (South Carolina) and will now help Fisker to reach its goal of producing one million vehicles annually in 2027.
