The startup has collected 8,871 pre-orders for a new model

Following the official announcement of the Magna deal, the founder of Fisker Inc. Henrik Fisker has revealed some new details of the Ocean electric crossover project.

The pre-production model will be shown publicly at the Los Angeles Auto Show in May 2021. In fact, there will be shown a car developed in conjunction with Magna. Recall that the only existing copy of Ocean was built by the Italian company Italdesign on the basis of Volkswagen ID.4 by order of Fisker, but since it was not possible to agree with the German concern on a joint production, the car will have to be redone.

Fisker also announced the opening of the firm’s European headquarters in Munich, near Graz, Austria, where the Magna plant is located. In this case, the main headquarters of Fisker will remain in California.

Finally, Henrik Fisker revealed the number of buyers who reserved the crossover. As of October 26, they numbered 8,871 people, and after the announcement of the deal with Magna, the number of people willing to buy a car has increased markedly.

Fisker Inc. Is already the second startup of renowned automotive designer Henrik Fisker. He was forced to leave his first company, which produced Fisker Karma hybrids. That car is now known as the Karma Revero.

Magna produces cars in Austria for many brands, including Toyota and Mercedes. In particular, in Graz, they make electric crossovers Jaguar I-Pace. The company will now help Fisker develop a production version of his crossover.

Since it will differ significantly from the previous one, made on the basis of Volkswagen, the previous technical characteristics can be considered not relevant. Fisker himself, however, said that his goal was to make a seven-seater electric crossover capable of accelerating to 100 kilometers per hour in less than three seconds.
