Henrik Fisker: We Want To Have Some Sexy Electric Sports Cars

Fisker, the California-based electric car startup headed by auto designer Henrik Fisker, has plans that stretch well beyond its first vehicle, the Ocean SUV. Due to go into production later this year, the Ocean was revealed in the US in 2021 and had its European debut in Barcelona the following February. Speaking at the Spanish reveal event, Fisker said his company has its eyes on a range of future vehicles, including sports cars.

Henrik Fisker Takes Another Swing at Luxury Car-Building

From the February/March 2022 issue of Car and Driver. Henrik Fisker's most iconic designs were chic BMWs and Aston Martins, and the Fisker Karma was a sporty sedan. So it may seem like a leap to go from high-end toys to the Fisker Ocean, a forthcoming affordable electric SUV, but he says it's a smart choice. "The world's most sold segment is SUVs. I've already designed a lot of luxury cars. I don't have to prove that we can design a sports car. Other companies [making EVs], they're making $100,000 vehicles. That segment will look crowded." The Austrian manufacturer Magna Steyr is building the Ocean in front- and all-wheel-drive configurations. The base Ocean uses a 275-hp motor and offers a range of around 250 miles; all-wheel-drive Ultra and Extreme trims have two motors good for a combined 540 and 550 horsepower, respectively. Prices will start under $40,000.

Supercar legend Henrik Fisker has designs on a cheaper electric revolution

“If you look at the car, it fundamentally hasn’t changed much in the last 50 years,” says Henrik Fisker, who designed the iconic Aston Martin DB9. “It still has four doors, a trunk that you slam, it’s put on a truck and sent out to a dealer. We looked at that entire chain of events and said: ‘what if we start with a clean sheet of paper?’”

Henrik Fisker Has Something To Say About America's Franchise Laws

The Fisker Ocean has finally arrived. The all-electric premium compact crossover debuted this week at the 2021 LA Auto Show and was immediately one of the event's stars. The crowd surrounding the display vehicles took well over an hour to thin out after the sheets were pulled off. Founder and CEO Henrik Fisker could not have been happier. With a total of four trims on deck beginning at a very reasonable $37,499 before federal tax credits, the base 275-hp Sport model boasts an EPA-estimated range of 250 miles and a 0-60 mph time of 6.9 seconds. Not bad at all.

Driving the Electric Car Revolution: Henrik Fisker of Fisker, Inc.

Getting electric vehicles on the road and putting those keys in the hands of drivers has certainly had its speed bumps. There’s the whole battery technology issue, an area where progress seems to sometimes move at a snail’s pace. Then, the high costs that made owning one of these cars out of reach for anyone who wasn’t a celebrity, a politician, or independently wealthy.

Fisker-Foxconn EV partnership ‘moving faster than expected,’ CEO Henrik Fisker says

The company, which reported its second-quarter earnings Thursday after market close, raised its business outlook for expectations for key non-GAAP operating expenses and capital expenditures for the full year up from its previous guidance of $450 million to $510 million. The earnings report pointed to R&D spending on prototype activities in 2021 driven by testing and validation on advanced driver assistance systems, powertrain and user interface. The company also noted an increase in spending on in-house costs, such as virtual validation software tools, hiring and virtual and physical testing to account for recently tightened Euro NCAP and IIHS safety regulations.
