The Fisker company showed the electric crossover Ocean, the event was held in Los Angeles. Orders for the new model have already begun to be accepted, but deliveries of the machine will start in 2022.

Businessman Henryk Fisker, who lives in California, is going to compete with Elon Musk in the electric car segment. The day before, the first step towards this goal was taken – the company’s debut serial novelty, Cross Ocean, was shown. This model has already been reported more than once, since Fisker began distributing teasers and intriguing descriptions on the network almost a year before the debut.

Alas, during the demonstration, they did not disclose the basic information about the technical characteristics of Fisker Ocean, at the same time, Fisker personally showed one of the unique features of the electric car – the ability to sing in karaoke during the trip.

 Engine performance is not reported – it is only known that the flagship version will acquire an all-wheel drive system, and it can accelerate to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds. The battery capacity is also unknown, however, it was previously said about 80 kW / h, which will be enough for 402 – 483 km on a single charge. At the same time, the cabin of the cross was declassified, where the main place is occupied by a large touchscreen. The dashboard has monochrome graphics, but the main indications also have the ability to display on the windshield. In addition, in the form of a projection on the windshield, you can display the lyrics that are offered in karaoke mode of the infotainment system. This allows the driver to ride and sing without being distracted from the road.

  Under the touch screen there is a protrusion of the drive mode selector and 5 buttons to control the volume, temperature, fan speed, song selection and access to the main menu. The interior uses materials such as recycled plastic, old fishing nets and tire waste.

 Fisker began accepting orders for Ocean at the end of last year, for this a deposit of $ 250 is required. Shipping copies will begin in 2022. The initial cost of the model is $ 37,499, but it is not yet known what specifically the basic equipment includes. For the sake of comparison, now the Tesla Model Y crossover costs from $ 48,000, therefore, Ocean will cost customers much cheaper.
