In a video posted on Monday, Fisker CEO Henrik Fisker unveiled that the upcoming Ocean Model will bring streaming apps like Youtube, Disney+, and Amazon Prime Video but also the web browser Google Chrome.

While showing the different apps available so far, Henrik admits he probably shouldn’t unveil those features and deleted the video shortly after.

“In the [Fisker] Ocean… I probably shouldn’t be showing this yet as is not done… It’s kinda cool” he said while scrolling through the infotainment system.

The company will report its second quarter earnings results on August 3 after the market close following a conference call at 5 pm eastern time where is expected that Fisker’s Management Team unveils more details about the first deliveries and also an update on the reservations numbers.

Last week, said the model will be showcased on Pebble Beach Automotive Week at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance from August 18 — 21. The pure electric SUV model made its European public debut in late February at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona (Spain) and starts at $37,499 for the Sport trim version.

Earlier in the week, the Ocean model arrived in Los Angeles to start the road tests ahead of the mass production and the first deliveries scheduled for November in Graz, Austria.

In late July, the company confirmed it will open its first Brand Experience Center in Europe this November. The center will be located in downtown Munich (Kaufingerstraße Street) near the Marienplatz, one of the touristy points in the German city.

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.
