Fisker Ocean test: more autonomy or cheaper than a Tesla, but crumbling defects

The American manufacturer Fisker arrives in France with its new electric car, the Ocean. It takes the form of an ultra -technological SUV with excellent autonomy and a call price lower than that of a Tesla Model Y. The icing on the cake: it can, in a particular version, recharge in 5 minutes and incorporates a solar panoramic roof for recharging. We had the chance to try this Fisker Ocean, and here is our full and detailed opinion.

Fisker Ocean

July 31, 2023 07/31/2023 • 23:00

There is little chance that you have already heard of Fisker, unless you are diligently following the automotive universe. He is an American manufacturer, led by its Danish founder, Henrik Fisker. You may remember the Fisker Karma, a rechargeable hybrid car (or with a range of autonomy to be exact) sporty, produced in small series until 2012 which did not have the expected success.

But all of this is ancient history, since the former designer of Aston Martin and BMW has relaunched Fisker company, with a whole new organization. And above all, the mission of producing only 100 % electric cars. The objective: to bring your stone to the building of the fight against global warming, By participating in the energy transition, with a more “clean” electric car.

To achieve this, the brand’s standard bearer is therefore represented by this new electric SUV, the Fisker Ocean. It clearly tickles Tesla and its Y model, with a similar format, and attention paid to the many technologies. Like Its huge 17.1 inch screen which can change orientation by a simple support on a button.

Above all, Henrik Fisker wants to democratize electric mobility By making electric cars more affordable. It is for this reason that The basic version of Fisker Ocean is cheaper that there tesla model y propulsion. But is this a good reason to get to buy ?

We were able to get the wheel and try this Fisker Ocean (in extreme finish) on the roads of Vienna for an entire day. And here is everything you have to remember from this new electric car.

Design: a compact hormone SUV

We had the chance to be able to exchange for long moments with Henrik Fisker during this test. We asked him what his vision of the design of an electric car was when he drew Fisker Ocean. His answer was final: A SUV, with a sporting and dynamic look with huge wheels, integrating a style halfway between the coupe and the fastback.

There was no better way to describe the look of this Fisker Ocean. Its dimensions are almost similar to a Tesla Model Y, but in reality, it feels like being faced with a more compact vehicle. It must be said that its gigantic 22 -inch rims (20 basic inches, completely breaking the design) create an optical effect, making the body smaller than it really is. But we will see later that this stylistic choice has brought some concessions, especially at the level of the trunk.

More subjectively, it must be recognized that the Fisker Ocean has an interesting look, which is rather pleasant to look at. It will not go completely unnoticed since the pencil stroke is quite unique. Even if some might see a resemblance to the Range Rover Velar and Evoque. But this car can still remain sober and blend into traffic, without attracting too much eyes.

Certain elements are still quite unique in the industry, like the panoramic sunroof which integrates a photovoltaic panel allowing to permanently recharge the car. Too bad, however, that this roof integrates bluish accents, As if the manufacturers had to force themselves to show that their car was electric.

California functionality, also unique, literally opens up all glass surfaces (except the front windshield) to have a convertible feeling, and transport long objects that can exceed by the rear window, like a surfboard. We can also note some particular details of design, such as reminders of the indicators integrated into the rear custod windows, recalling the American origin of the car.

Finally, a quick word on the eco -responsibility of this car. Fisker mainly uses recycled materials and has banned the use of animal leather, replaced by vegetable leather. Choices that reduce its environmental footprint.

Habitability: a real SUV

Fisker Océan is an SUV, and it is much clearer inside than outside. The available place is massive, whether at the front or rear. All passengers will be comfortable, whether in width as well as in height. My meter eighty four posed no worries at the back with a largely sufficient roof guard.

As with any self -respecting electric car, the total absence of transmission tunnel allows you to have a really flat floor. Leg space is more than enough at the rear, Helped by the generous wheelbase of 2.921 meters.

The place of the environment will of course be reserved for short journeys as often, because the huge central armrest makes This uncomfortable place in the back level. The rear seat (each seat can fall independently) makes it possible to electrically adjust the inclination of the passenger seats.

We feel that Fisker Ocean has been thought of so that we are comfortably seated, whatever the seat, during long journeys. Some tips have been integrated into the car, such as independent shelves on the front seats, to be able to work or eat a piece during a recharge break.

Unfortunately, everything is not perfect on the habitability side. With a beautiful baby like Fisker Ocean, we expected to find a huge trunk, worthy of a SUV. Instead, we end up with A chest of a volume of 476 liters (918 liters by folding up the rear seats) for a load that does not exceed the rear shelf. For comparison, Tesla offers 854 liters on its Model Y, as well as a front chest (fruit) of 117 liters.

The materials are quite pleasant to the eye, with the use in particular of Alcantara, but the hard plastic parts denote a little with the price placement of this car.

The driving position is quite classic, with commodos that are not revolutionary and sometimes even seem a little fragile, but it is a simple sensation. Only the 17.1 inch screen really brings a touch of modernity to the whole.

Infotainment: where everything changes

And precisely, let’s now address the most disappointing part of this car: the infodivertissment system. And you will quickly understand why.

The system consists of five screens in total (including two quite useless). The first is the instrumentation handset, behind the steering wheel, making it possible to display certain information such as speed, driving mode, or even remaining autonomy and GPS indications.

His presence is appreciable, but Its usefulness is currently quite reducede. We would have appreciated being able to personalize this display, adding, for example, consumption, 3D visualization of the car (for driving aids) or a odometer or the navigation system card. The design of this display has been clearly botched, with a 3D movement of movement (if the car accelerates or slowed down) of the most cheesy.

We also find A small screen on the back, in the central armrest, allowing to adjust the tri-zone air conditioning. A kind of limoused mode which adds cost, complexity and which we could have happened in favor of simple buttons at the rear central ventilation nozzle.

Now go to the highlight of the show: The huge 17.1 inch screen and its Hollywood mode. This is the possibility of varying the vertical mode screen during driving in landscape mode during a stop. What to take advantage of YouTube videos in the right format.

The vertical mode, on the other hand, makes it possible to display the visualization of 3D at the top, and the GPS card in the lower part. To avoid having to leave the eyes of the road to adjust the temperature of the air conditioning or the volume, Fisker integrated A small screen in the form of a banner in the central screen. With physical buttons to carry out these actions. A good idea, but the texture of the pimples is a little too cheap, with logos that could fade in time because of the repetitive supports.

The interface developed internally by the Fisker teams, in partnership with Magna, is quite easy to use. Finally … in theory. In practice, we were deeply disappointed and you will quickly understand why.

Materially, it is an Intel Atom processor that turns the infogencing system. The same chip found on the old Tesla Model 3 between 2017 and 2020. The same to which we reproached, on the Tesla, for being a slow hair on certain actions. The same as Tesla replaced by an AMD chip in 2021 for these reasons. And, as we could see during the test, Fisker could not do magic: The system is extremely slow, Worse than on the old Tesla Model 3. To the point of becoming really painful to use.

Count a good two good seconds between support on a button and carrying out the task by the system. What make you think that the latter did not take into account your request. And to press a second time on the touch screen, then triggering another action which had not been requested … The unheeded aliasing (resulting in raw and pixelated icons) betrays the flagrant lack of power of power The Intel Puce.

Unfortunately, these performance problems seem difficult to solve. We were indeed able to maintain ourselves with the experts of the brand, including Henrik Fisker, who admitted to us that in time saving, the brand used, in part, a software platform created by Magna and other companies. Then making the optimization that Tesla very complicated had been able to perform with the same chip to obtain a correct interface to use.

What has also cooled us was when the Father of Fisker Ocean admitted to us that latency was not a problem, because on the road, the driver has time to wait for an action to realize. A very strange vision of modernity.

To make sure, the car is not compatible with Android Auto and Apple Carplay. The brand’s owner gives time to see if customers really need it. Too bad, because with these system, the screen would have been much more fluid, because it is then the power of the smartphone that is used.

But, the descent into hell of infotainment does not stop here. In addition to slowness, We also witnessed many bugs : Blocked display with the need to restart the car to solve the problem, Spotify who refuses to launch music or youtube that is blocking at the launch of a video. Enough to pass this serial car for a preproduction version or even a prototype.

The good news is that Fisker is aware of these problems and that the car can easily be updated remotely (in ota via wi-fi). Besides, the teams had updated the car the day before our test, to resolve last -minute bugs. These problems are purely software and can therefore be resolved, including after purchase, contrary to the concerns of slowness.

Driving aid: yes, but no (finally, for the moment)

We were happy to try the driving aid of the Fisker Ocean, with a semi-autonomous driving of level 2 and an HD radar. A first in the industry, while Elon Musk impatiently awaits this type of radar to integrate it into Tesla.

Unfortunately, Fisker made the decision to market (and start deliveries) Without driving aids, or almost. There are some (such as emergency braking), but not intelligent cruise control, or centering in the way. Not enough, therefore, offer semi-autonomous driving of level 2. Too bad, and it will be necessary Wait for the fourth quarter 2023 so that the car receives a software update activating these features.

The reason ? The desire to start deliveries as quickly as possible, to reassure investors and prevent customers from canceling their booking. A daring bet !

Asked about this, Henrik Fisker reassures us by telling us that this launch was planned as it is, and that he sees his car as a technological object that evolves over time. But, our sources have confirmed to us that the launch had been rushed, even if the car does not have all the technologies promised to launch. What make customers pass for beta testers. Something that Elon Musk does not hesitate to do too, with for example the regression of the Park Assist via Tesla Vision.

Route planner: triple yes !

Good news: Fisker Ocean incorporates a route planner. This famous essential feature on an electric car for Easily and quickly browse long distances.

We were able to simulate a trip from Vienna to Paris, and the proposal seemed relevant, with Four short stops of around 20 to 25 minutes each to browse the 1,200 km that separate the two capitals.

The planner lists compatible terminals, as well as their power and availability. It is also possible to adjust the desired energy level on arrival at a terminal or to destination. Which allows the American brand to do better than Tesla on this point.

Driving: A Pataud SUV, but a little dynamic

Fisker Ocean is a good electric car: The material part is solid and rather well designed. We feel safe in this vehicle and the grip is simple and quick, despite the car template.

It must be said that the SUV typed driving position (height) makes it possible to dominate the road and facilitate maneuvers in town. However, it is not necessarily a gift, with a 11.95-meter turning radius which does not facilitate slots and turnover.

The totally disproportionate power of this electric beast (564 hp for a torque of 736 nm) makes it possible to achieve dazzling accelerations (0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 seconds). Which is more than enough for literally stick your passengers to the seat. Too bad that the holding handles for passengers are absent subscribers … as with Tesla, to save a few tens of euros.

The covers are also lively, but from 100 km/h, these are less vigorous. But The power reserve remains enormous, allowing to be safe in complete safety in any condition.

Regenerative braking can be adjusted on three different modes, including screen settings. Unfortunately, driving has a pedal is not there for the moment. More surprising: the hill start assistance which keeps the handbrake in the climbs at a stop is not yet active.

The suspensions filter well the roughness of the road, Offering pleasant comfort, but not at the level of the tenors on the market either at Mercedes or DS with pneumatic suspensions. And yet, our test model was wearing huge 22 -inch wheels and devoid of adaptive suspensions. These will arrive later in the year, to improve handling and slightly enhance the comfort.

The tires have a very thick flank, making it possible to better filter the faults of the road despite their gigantic size, often synonymous with discomfort. Acoustic comfort is also there, since The car remains silent, including at high speed. Air noises are contained, even if they start to be heard a bit on the highway.

The last and 5th screen of the Fisker Ocean is integrated into the central rear view mirror, since it is a camera mirror. A camera, present at the back of the vehicle, films what is going on behind the car. The image is then broadcast on the screen of this rear view mirror. Very practical, since it allows to have excellent vision, without any obstacle. It is possible to switch to mirror mode, classic. But the heads and the small rear telescope then harm visibility.

The camera mirror is practical, but requires an adaptation time. It is also possible to benefit from the mirror mode and the camera at the same time, thanks to the reflections. Depending on the distance from your eyes update, you can see the image of the camera, or that of the mirror.

In sporting driving, the limits of ocean Fisker are felt. We stay on a very heavy car (2.4 tonnes), with an obvious under-screening trend, despite the all-wheel drive of our test version. It is clearly not a sports car. The version with a single engine at the front (275 hp for a 0 to 100 km/h made in 7.4 seconds) should be better suitable for this chassis.

Be careful to monitor the EuronCap crash-test score when it is available in the coming months. The brand hopes to obtain 4 or 5 stars (out of 5).

In any case, no complaints on the material part of the car: it does not seem to have been sloppy, which would have been annoying since impossible to update remotely for a customer already delivered.

Unfortunately, the software part linked to the hardware part (such as engine management, centralized closure management, air conditioning) also requires a little refining, because We have witnessed some annoying bugs on a finalized car and already marketed.

Autonomy, battery and recharge

Fisker Ocean integrates A huge 113 kWh brute battery (106 kWh useful) which comes from the Chinese giant and leader catl. This is an NCM (Nickel Cobalt Manganese) chemistry allowing to announce a range of 707 km on the mixed WLTP cycle with the 20 -inch rims (701 km in 22 inches). Fisker specifies that this is the Electric SUV sold in Europe with the greatest autonomy.

And it is true, since the Tesla Model is limited to 565 km in a great autonomy version, but with a much smaller battery, 80 kWh. For a fairer comparison, let us quote the model y performance and its 514 km of autonomy.

Fisker provides for a less expensive version of the Ocean, with A range of 440 km for a battery with an estimated capacity at around 65 kWh useful. Again, the Tesla Model offers 455 km of autonomy with a smaller battery, about 60 kWh.

And here is one of the constraints of the SUV format of the Fisker Ocean, with its imposing design (the brand refused to communicate the coefficient of aerodynamic trail CX) and its very high weight. This combo was not tender on the consumption of the car, with a mixed WLTP value of 18.1 kWh (which takes into account the losses linked to recharge). 15 % more than its rival from Tesla.

Unfortunately, it was impossible for us to check the consumption of this car for a very simple reason. Fisker has not yet integrated consumption information on screens ! You can only consult the total mileage traveled by the car since its production as well as its charging rate … but an update should correct this in the coming weeks.

For fast recharging, Fisker uses a 200 kW charging power on a quick terminal (in direct current), allowing to go from 10 to 80 % in approximately 34 minutes. 10 to 15 to 15 minutes more than its large rival. On long journeys, The difference should however be minimal between a Tesla and a Fisker, Due to the greatest autonomy of Fisker.

By alternating current (as at home or on an accelerated public terminal), it will take 12 hours to fully fill the battery.

Impossible to approach the chapter of the recharge without talking about the famous Skyolar panoramic roof integrating photovoltaic cells. The maximum power is announced at 300 kW. This allows Fisker to indicate the possibility of recovering enough autonomy to travel annually 2,400 km only thanks to the energy of the sun. In other words, with 10 hours of full sun, you will have recovered around 3 % battery or 21 km of autonomy.

This expensive option (because only accessible with the highest end finishes) should not be chosen for its profitability, according to Henrik Fisker. But rather for an ecological and technological commitment. Needless to say that In our latitudes, the energy recovered annually will be less than 2,400 km. And above all, provided that the car is not parked inside.

A technology that makes us think of the Lightyear 0 and its huge solar roof, which we had been able to try the prototype, before the bankruptcy of the company and the formalization of the Lightyear 2 more affordable. But at Fisker, Integration is much more successful, with a roof which remains partly transparent.

To close the chapter of the recharge, know that the brand has established a partnership with ample, to “recharge” the battery in about five minutes. For connoisseurs are the technique of the Battery exchange (Battery Swapping) allowing to remove the empty battery to leave with another, full, in record time. A technologist already seen at Nio with ET7 and who had really amazed us during his test in Germany.

Nio et7

But beware, Because this partnership is not intended for individuals, Only to the fleets of rental companies. What save them precious time at the end of a rental for example.

Finally, the car battery can be used as a large transportable battery, thanks to v2l and v2h technologies. What to allow to supply a house, another car or an electrical device. Whether with the 230 volts sector outlet located in the trunk, but also with the CCS Combo socket for a much higher power. Materially implemented technologies, but not yet in the software. We are promised to arrive in 2024.

Price, availability and competition

Fisker Ocean is already available in France. The Californian brand started its first deliveries a few weeks ago. About 35,000 units produced this year and 70,000 in 2024 are planned, thanks to the Austrian factory of its partner Magna (which has developed and made many German BMW and Mercedes cars).

For the moment, only the high autonomy version is produced. The version with the smallest battery (the most affordable) should arrive in a few months. It is she who will allow us to offer the first prize, From 42,880 euros. With the ecological bonus game of 5,000 euros, this gives a final price of 37,880 euros with an autonomy of 440 km.

In France, we can cite the Renault Mégane E-Tech as a competitor, which recharges so quickly, and is available with the large battery of 60 kWh for 42,000 euros, with a WLTP autonomy of 470 km.

Its greatest competitor will of course be the Tesla Model Y Propulsion, currently available from 45,990 euros, with a range of 455 km and a much faster recharge, between 20 to 25 minutes depending on the battery.

Our test version, the Fisker Ocean One (Launch Edition), with its large battery and its autonomy of 707 km, Exchange against 69,950 euros. It can be compared to the Tesla Model Y Performance, its autonomy of 514 km with its 80 kWh battery, for a price of 59,990 euros.

For comparison, the Tesla Model S and its autonomy of 723 km requires a check for 106,490 euros. Which proves the excellent Autonomy / Price ratio of Fisker Ocean.

Regarding the after-sales service, Fisker plans to open a showroom in Paris and a workshop in the Paris region. For customers who do not live in the Paris region, partnerships with Speedy and Bridgestone are planned.
