With the American car manufacturer Fisker, the Netherlands has gained yet another car brand that is fully dedicated to the sale of electric models. The Fisker Ocean can now be reserved, but it doesn’t stop there.
Fisker was once active in the Netherlands for a short time. It then had a beautifully designed model called Karma, which was also sold in the Netherlands between 2011 and 2014. The former Fisker went bankrupt years ago and found a new owner in a Chinese company, which renamed the brand Karma. Henrik Fisker, the founder of the original Fisker and a gifted car designer himself, went on to found the current Fisker.
After the disappearance of the Fisker Karma you no longer encountered the brand name in the Netherlands, but now Fisker is back. In addition to the United States and Canada, the brand was already active in Europe. It has now spread its wings to Denmark, Germany, France, Norway, Austria, the United Kingdom and Sweden. And now it adds three countries to that list: Switzerland, Belgium and the Netherlands.
It doesn’t stop at the Ocean. Dutch interested parties can already sign up for the Pear, the more than 1000 hp strong Ronin and the Alaska
No dealer network
In the Netherlands, Fisker will continue to sell its cars without the intervention of a dealer network, so the company has opted for the now well-known ‘direct sales model’. The Fisker Ocean is the brand’s first car to come to the Netherlands. The electric SUV can already be reserved, although final prices are not yet known. Fisker does release indication prices for the Ocean. The Fisker Ocean should cost € 71,058 as an Extreme.
The introductory version, One, of which only 5000 will be available worldwide, is just as expensive. Both cars have an electric range of up to 707 kilometers thanks to a 113 kWh battery. Two electric motors together account for 475 hp in the base, but temporarily deliver 663 hp after pressing the boost button. The 4.77 meter long and weighing more than 2.4 tons SUV must be able to reach a speed of 100 km / h from standstill in about 4 seconds.
The prices of the other models, the Pear, Ronin and Alaska, will follow later this year.
