See the Ocean in Las Vegas: Fisker will unveil its electric SUV at CES 2020 in January

After months of releasing teaser images, American automaker Fisker announced it will unveil its $40,000 electric Ocean SUV in January at the Consumer Electronics Show 2020 in Las Vegas.

Fisker also announced a partnership with Electrify America to ensure Ocean owners will have access to a vast network of fast-charging stations once the vehicle hits the market.

A “full prototype” of the SUV will be shown at the tech convention, Fisker said.

“The world will get to see the fully engineered vehicle, which rides on a production-ready platform – signaling our intent to get it to market efficiently,” the company’s CEO, Henrik Fisker, said in a news release.

Previously, Fisker said the Ocean would have all-wheel-drive. Something the company calls “California mode” will give owners “fresh air and an open feeling without being in a convertible.” 

The vehicle will house an 80 kWh lithium-ion battery pack with a range of up to 300 miles, depending on driving conditions.

The battery will get 200 miles of range after 30 minutes of charging, Fisker said. Fisker and Electrify America are working to reduce charging times without compromising battery life. By 2021, Electrify America hopes to have about 800 charging stations across 45 states. 

The SUV’s range and price point mirror that of Tesla’s standard range Model Y, which is set for production in 2021. Versions of the Model Y will come with either five or seven seats and prices start at $39,000. 

Unlike Tesla’s crossover, Ocean will have a solar charging roof. Details beyond that are scant; however, Fisker promises more specs and details in the coming weeks. 

The Fisker Ocean is set to begin production at the end of 2021, and deliveries should start in 2022, the same year Tesla is to deliver its Cybertruck. Fisker accepts $250 reservations through its website. 

Once production begins, motorists can lease the electric vehicle for $379 a month, with a $2,999 down payment. 

CES 2020 will run Jan. 7-10 at the World Trade Center Las Vegas.
