The EV startup Fisker said Thursday its first model Fisker Ocean 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.

On Monday, 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.

“We are excited to be at Pebble Beach Concours to showcase one of the world’s most sustainable and innovative electric vehicles,” said CEO Henrik Fisker. “It’s the first time we’re in northern California, and this setting offers our local stakeholders an opportunity to see, touch, and feel the Fisker Ocean.”

Closer to production, each reservation holder will finalize the details of their specific Fisker Ocean One and reservation holders may finance their Fisker Ocean via Fisker Finance, the automaker said.

Earlier this week, 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.

Last week, the company said it will report its second quarter earnings results on August 3 after market close following a conference call at 5 pm eastern time. The conference call can be accessed on Fisker’s Investor Relations website and will count on the CEO Henrik Fisker, the CTO Burkhard Huhnke, and also the COO/CFO Geeta Gupta-Fisker.

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.
