Fisker CEO said Monday on LinkedIn the Extreme trim of the company’s first model Fisker Ocean has “over $30k of standard options” in comparison with the Ultra trim adding that Fisker will unveil further details in October.

Henrik Fisker also teased “a few surprises” for the model’s configurator. Ocean’s production is scheduled to start on November 17 at Magna’s factory in Graz, Austria.

“Fisker Ocean Extreme has over $30k of standard options VS the Ocean Ultra! We will detail them in October on our new configurator (including a few surprises),” Henrik wrote.

Last Friday, the company said that it sold out the 2023 planned production of Fisker Ocean Sport and Ultra trims for the U.S. market. The company added that it is “exploring US manufacturing sites”, as well as considering an increase of Ocean’s production in late 2023.

Earlier in the week, the company published its Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) impacts report, the first for the company before production begins in November 2022 at the Magna plant in Austria.

In the report, the company claims that 50% of the suppliers prioritize EV and non-fossil fuel transport and that its SolarSky, a rooftop solar panel supplementing battery power, can add up to 1,500 miles of range annually, enhancing the Ocean’s 250-350 mile per charge range.

Recently, Fisker reported its second quarter earnings results where it confirmed the sold-out of the 5,000 units special units for the Ocean model amid a non-refundable $5,000 reservation.

The EV startup said it has over $850 million of cash and cash equivalents reflecting its “prudent liquidity management and is sufficient to fund the production launch of the Fisker Ocean in November 2022 and for additional vehicle development throughout 2022”.
