This was in fact only a quick preview of the car, with the official premiere scheduled for today at the LA Auto Show. Well, the wait is over as the Fisker Ocean finally debuts with more technical aspects of the vehicle like the range, the power, the interior, and some exclusive world firsts, which Fisker says they’ve filed patents for.

“Our mission is to create the world’s most innovative and sustainable vehicles that are also affordable, and it all starts with the Fisker Ocean as we fully embrace a clean future for all,” Fisker said, as he kicked off the first manufacturer event of the show

The wraps were taken off and the design of the production vehicle has thankfully stayed true to the Fisker Ocean Concept car that debuted last year. Finished in a futuristic silver, you can see that the same minimalistic design with the clean lines has been carried over.

You have thin lighting elements at both ends of the SUV and a pronounced haunch around the rear window, below the C pillar, that juts up adding more muscle. Overall, the design remains boxy, but it somehow embodies some truly futuristic styling, which is refreshing.

The standout feature by far though is the unique swiveling screen in the interior, which was co-develpoed with iPhone maker, Foxconn. Patents have been filed for this technology. Apart from this, the luxury interior is a standout and is made from sustainable and recycled materials. Free form technology was used to design the seamless seats in the vehicle.

Provided you live in a sunny place like California, and get the top spec model, the solar roof can add up to 1500 miles to the range of the vehcile. The solar roof is a feature that featured on the old Karma as well. Speaking of the sunshine state, there’s a feature on the new Ocean dubbed Califonia mode, that lowers all the windows including the rear quarter windows and the rear window on the tail gate.
