Fisker Officially Announces An Extreme Off-Road Package For The Ocean Called 'Force E'

Fisker Officially Announces An Extreme Off-Road Package For The Ocean Called ’Force E’

With a portable water tank, this package will make the Ocean a rescue vehicle as well

Earlier this month, Fisker teased a new off-road avatar of the recently-unveiled Ocean SUV.The renders released back then showed the SUV with off-road tires, wider stance and featured ‘UN’ lettering on it suggesting that it would be pitched as a rescue vehicle.

As it turns out, Fisker has made this official. Moniker’d as ‘Force E’, the off-road package is targeting rescue operations and will certainly invoke interest among various organizations involved in humanitarian activities. Well, the automaker seems serious about the Ocean SUV after a couple of not-so-successful attempts with its earlier products.

Fisker Is Teasing a "Rescue and Mil-Spec" Package for the Ocean SUV

Fisker Is Teasing a "Rescue and Mil-Spec" Package for the Ocean SUV

It seems like Fisker has a lot of hopes pinned on this SUV

The Fisker Ocean SUV was unveiled at the 2020 Consumer Electronics. The company has had beautiful vehicles in the past, but none of them really hit the market. Henrik Fisker, the CEO of Fisker Inc., has the propensity to overcommit and under-deliver, so no one took him seriously when he announced in 2019 that Fisker is planning to build an affordable electric four-wheel-drive SUV with a range of 300 miles.

However, Fisker not only revealed the SUV, but also announced a sub-$30,000 starting price tag – after discounting for the credits – that took everyone by surprise. Now, the company has teased a new off-road trim for the SUV that looks tough and could invoke a lot of interest.

2022 Fisker Ocean

2022 Fisker Ocean

A well-rounded, complete package that offers absolute bang for the buck

Back in March 2019, Henrik Fisker, the CEO of Fisker Inc., announced that the company is planning to build an affordable electric four-wheel-drive SUV with a range of 300 miles. But no one really took him seriously given his propensity to overcommit and under-deliver.

Make no mistake; Fisker has produced some of the most beautiful-looking vehicles to date, but the company never really hit it off. This time, however, Fisker has lived up to its word and revealed its first electric SUV at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show. Called the Fisker Ocean, the SUV looks to be a wholesome package and has enough to take on some of the fiercest competitors in the market. But will the Ocean see the light of the day?

Fisker To Come Out With Its Electric SUV, But Is The Company Serious About It?

Fisker To Come Out With Its Electric SUV, But Is The Company Serious About It?

The company is just not able to move forward with production of some promising concepts it has launched over the years

Fisker has been as fickle as a cat with its products in the auto industry. For what it’s worth, the company comes up with some really nice concepts that garner a lot of attention. But the concept-to-production model ratio does not induce enough faith in the brand. Such is the company’s reputation that no one really takes Fisker that seriously anymore. Recently, Henrik Fisker tweeted a teaser image that looks like a pickup truck. With a lot of products already announced but none of them making it to production, should we even be excited about the Fisker pickup truck?

Fisker Bankrolls Development of New EV SUV With Talent From Toyota and VW

Fisker Bankrolls Development of New EV SUV With Talent From Toyota and VW

Niche manufacturer Fisker released new renders of its upcoming SUV that should be unveiled in prototype form before the end of 2019

Less than a month since we saw the first previews of Fisker’s sort-of-affordable electric SUV, the company releases another preview and more information on the development process. Fisker is enlisting the help of a former Toyota and Volkswagen Manufacturing Executive to make the model a hit in a world that’s soon to be flooded by Rivians and NIOs, among others.

Fisker, the company that was once making outlandish sports cars on BMW or Mercedes-Benz underpinnings is no more. Henrik Fisker, the founder of Fisker Automotive, seemed unphased by the bankruptcy of his company by bouncing back in 2016 when he announced that he’s establishing Fisker Inc. Since then, Fisker unveiled an almighty yacht concept, a boxy electric shuttle, and an electric sedan called eMotion. Now, apparently, next in his sights in the compact SUV segment which he plans to tackle with a vehicle that should cost about $40,000.

On paper, the SUV looks better than the Tesla Model Y

Do you remember Henrik Fisker? He is the man behind the original Karma PHEV that drove Fisker Automotive into bankruptcy. However, Fisker has now announced a sub $40,000 SUV that will be one of the three mass-market cars that his company, Fisker Inc., plans to build in the near future. The automaker is aiming for a 300-mile range and is planning to launch this unnamed SUV in the second half of 2021. Will Mr. Fisker be able to secure a chunk of the market this time around?

Fisker’s Second Run Looks Promising Thanks to an Investment From Caterpillar for Solid-State Battery Technology

Will EV battery tech see use in heavy machinery of the future?

Competition in the all-electric passenger vehicle segment is heating up, and one of the major points of contention is battery technology. Lithium-ion packs are all the rage these days, but critical figures like range-per-charge and charge times are lagging compared to the internal combustion alternatives. However, technology development might soon turn the tables, and now, it looks as though Caterpillar is considering solid-state batteries as a possible investment for the future.

The Fisker eMotion Has a Beautiful Interior

The Fisker eMotion Has a Beautiful Interior

It’s not what we expected, and that’s a great thing

The Fisker eMotion’s debut at the Consumer Electronics Show caught a few people by surprise. The debut itself was expected, but the features in the car were more than what most people thought they’d be. The eMotion’s interior is a good example of that. In a word, it’s beautiful. That doesn’t come as a shock to those who know Henrik Fisker’s work, but in some ways, the legendary auto designer seems to have outdone himself this time.

2019 Fisker EMotion

2019 Fisker EMotion

High-tech and high-performance in an EV package

If you’ve never heard the name Fisker before, let me give you a brief summary. The name comes from Henrik Fisker, a Danish-born entrepreneur and automotive designer currently residing in Los Angeles. Mr. Fisker worked his pen designing such show stoppers as the Aston Martin DB9, BMW Z8, Galpin-Fisker Mustang Rocket, and VLF Force 1 V10, among others. In 2007, he founded Fisker Automotive, consequently unveiling the Fisker Karma hybrid sports sedan in 2011. Long story short, the Karma didn’t pan out all that great, and Fisker resigned as chairman of the company that bore his name in 2013. But that was then, and now, Fisker has a new automotive startup, and even a new model to go with it. It’s called the EMotion, and it’s framed as a luxurious all-electric four-door with quick performance, groundbreaking solid-state battery technology, and upwards of 400 miles of range per charge, not to mention supercar good looks and Level 4 self-driving capability.

The new firm is called Fisker Inc., and the EMotion will be the company’s very first offering. But it’s not easy to break into the premium EV segment, especially when you consider all the other companies out there vying to do exactly the same. Pair that with growing competition from all the established makes currently doubling down on electric vehicles, and you’re left with odds of success akin to an ice cube’s chance in Hades.

That said, Fisker is no novice in this space. Sure, the Karma didn’t exactly pan out they way it was intended, but when consider Fisker’s vast industry connections and knowledge, Fisker Inc. might actually have a shot at making it. Yes, it’s an extremely bold endeavor, and yes, the claims getting tossed around the EMotion smell a lot like vaporware. But hey – if that guy who made PayPal can do it, why not Fisker?

Updated 1/9/2018: Fisker just debuted the EMotion at CES 2018! Read on for all the details and new images.

Henrik Fisker is back with a vengeance!

The Fisker eMotion has officially spread its wings at the Consumer Electronics Show. Henrik Fisker’s latest pièce de résistance is every bit the car we expected it to be. It’s sharp as a tack, has aero bits for days, and carries what can only be described as one of the funkiest door configurations of any car we’ve seen in recent memory. If you thought the Tesla Model X’s falcon doors were treats for the senses, prepare yourselves for what the eMotion has to offer.

And a bit of Tesla Model X

It’s been around seven years since the Fisker Karma was a still a thing, and Henrik Fisker appears to be back in business with another company. With Fisker Automotive bankrupt since 2013 and the Fisker Karma revived by a Chinese company under a different name, Henrik founded Fisker Inc. in 2016 and set out to develop an all-electric sports car. Less than two years have passed since then, and Fisker unveiled his first automobile in years. It’s called the EMotion, it’s gorgeous to look at, and it has the coolest set of four doors ever created.

Merry Christmas: Henrik Fisker Teases the EMotion’s Interior Just Weeks Before CES Debut

You could say it’s coming along swimmingly

It’s been a long time coming, but the Fisker Emotion looks like it’ll be the best thing created since toilet paper… or… uh, at least since the Tesla Model S, anyway. Looking at the important bits – it could use Fisker’s new battery, so it’ll have 500 miles of range, it’s gorgeous, and is said to offer level 5 autonomy. Butterfly doors are also standard because, well, Fisker. But, the one thing we haven’t had the chance to lay eyes on yet is the interior, but that’s soon about the change as Fisker gears up for a full review at CES in January. And, before that happens, the man has decided to release a sketch showing off a basic design concept with a massive color palette followed by a shot of a door trim panel being wrapped in leather. Let’s check ‘em out…

Fisker's Newest Project is an Electric Shuttle; Deliveries Start in Late-2018

Fisker’s Newest Project is an Electric Shuttle; Deliveries Start in Late-2018

Is this really the transportation of the future?

Proclaimed as an “SUV you actually want to ride in,” Henrik Fisker has finally shown off his newest creation and the second model to be proposed for the Fisker lineup. Meet the Fisker Orbit, a model that Fisker claims will change the future of mobility forever, and has yet to go beyond the rendering stage, but is apparently slated for delivery starting in October of 2018 – that’s less than one year from the time of this writing. The company, via its Facebook page, said its an “electric, connected, autonomous shuttle for smart cities.” According to Boss Magazine, the new Orbit will be built in collaboration with Hakim Unique Group of China, a brand valued at $32 billion with 160 subsidiaries globally.

Fisker's New Battery Patent Promises 500-Mile Range; One-Minute Charging

Fisker’s New Battery Patent Promises 500-Mile Range; One-Minute Charging

And, if you can believe it, it could be put to use in the next 5 to 7 years!

Fisker, the company that has worked diligently to bring about a dead-to-rights Tesla Model S fighter, has just announced a new battery patent that promises a new technology capable of ranges exceeding 500 miles and one-minute recharging. Let me say that again: One-minute recharging.

Details are still rather thin at this point, but we have learned that Fisker’s new power storage technology will allow the company to build solid-state batteries with lots of surface area in comparison to the current thin-film solid-state electrodes currently in development and use. This ultimately means better conductivity below the shell which, in turn, makes for a battery that works better in cold weather and charges faster. Keep in mind; this is why lithium-ion batteries are the go-to right now for EVs – the current capabilities of solid-state batteries are insufficient and low conductivity levels is a primary cause of this. So, if what Fisker is saying is true, the company could have just solved a very big problem and could, very well, usher in the next generation of battery technology.

Of course, Fisker isn’t the only company gunning for solid-state batteries, and Toyota has even promised its battery would be put to use in electric cars by 2022, just two years sooner than what Fisker claims it can do. Then again, Toyota hasn’t proved its technology, so it still has the same burden that has now be thrust onto Fisker’s shoulders as well. It’s obviously an arms race in which the winner will reign supreme in the EV world. In the end, Fisker if lofting out claims for density 2.5 times that of current lithium-ion batters, which means these babies could charge in minutes and offer up ranges of 500 miles. Just think, you can pull into a “gas station” and by the time you make up your hot dogs, buy a beverage, and take a leak, you’re EV is good for another 500 miles. Range Anxiety? Not in this future. The question now is: Who’s going to deliver on these lofty promises first?

Toyota still has a few years, and the man behind Fisker isn’t exactly working with a full deck of successful resumes either. He hasn’t exactly been the most successful cat on the street, and he promises an advanced battery in the Emotion just to retract his claims. But, for EVs to be truly successful, this is the kind of technology we need, and if we’re really this close – Toyota claims 2022 and Fisker 2024 – we’ll certainly be seeing it happen in most of our lifetimes. And, once that technology is there, there isn’t really a need for the ICE anymore either now is there?

Have something on your mind? Let us know in the comments section below. We’re curious as to what you think about these hefty claims.

Fisker Finally Moves On From The Mustache Grille!

Fisker Finally Moves On From The Mustache Grille!

Teaser photos of the Fisker EMotion reveal a dynamic design

As innovative and pioneering as the Fisker Karma was, most people probably remember it for having the strangest looking front grille in the auto industry. Sure, it wasn’t on the level of the Mitsuoka Orichi, but not a lot of people had anything flattering to say about that grille. But, it seems Fisker has learned its lesson; new teaser photos of the company’s EMotion electric sports car reveal a much more fluid-looking car that’s more in line with Henrik Fisker’s reputation as one of the best auto designers in the industry.

The teaser photos actually don’t reveal much of the whole car, but they did show some significant details that are, no doubt, worth mentioning. The “panther-looking” headlight set-up is there and the smaller front grille doesn’t steal too much attention away from the section’s overall design quite like how the old mustache grille became one of the enduring design characteristics of the Karma for all the wrong reasons. The front bumper of the car is also a lot more subdued than the one found in the concept while the pair of hood scopes are now located further back on the hood, just in front of the windshield. Based on the photos, you might even say that the EMotion bears some similarities to the Jaguar F-Type. We’ll only know for sure when the car makes its debut this coming August. For now, I think that the EMotion already looks better than the Karma ever did.
