One of the interesting things about electrification is that it opens up the automotive industry to new players. This certainly complicates the task of traditional manufacturers, as illustrated by the “disruption” created by a Tesla, but it has the virtue of renewing the sector quite strongly.

Live video from the 2022 Paris Motor Show – Fisker Ocean, the new wave electric SUV

This is how the 2022 auto show allows us to discover the Fisker Ocean, a family SUV competing with the Tesla Model Y and other BMW iX3s. Fisker is an American brand created in the 2000s by Henrik Fisker, of Danish origin, and notably distinguished itself by launching the Karma (2011), a breathtaking 4-door coupé with electric motor complete with a thermal range extender .

4.78 m long, the Ocean shows a good sense of hospitality, even if its trunk volume will not be part of the references in the category.

The cabin is lined with valuable materials, partly from recycling, and its attractive design.  Throne in its center is a 17.1-inch diagonal multimedia touch screen, which has the originality of being rotatable (vertical or horizontal position, therefore)

Fisker announces a range of 630 km for the Ocean, and suggests that the solar panels adorning the panoramic roof (on high-end versions) can increase the annual range by 2 to 3,000 km depending on the amount of sunshine.

Production of the Ocean will begin on November 17 in Austria, and the first copies for France should arrive in April. The prices range from €41,900 to €69,990, but rental financing formulas will be offered by Crédit Agricole Consumer Finance, the banking organization on which the Ocean is exhibited in Hall 4 of the Mondial.

I like

the "California fashion" lowers all the windows of the vehicle.

I do not like

A much smaller trunk than that of a Tesla Model Y, and a tiny sub-trunk.
