Fisker Ocean and Q2 Financial Updates

Share Fisker Inc. press release On the heels of second-quarter financial results, he called investors this morning, providing his latest updates on electric vehicle progress, as well as cash figures on hand. First things first — as of the end of the second quarter, Fisker reported more than 56,000 reservations for its Ocean SUV.

This isn’t a big jump from 50,000 reservations that were Promotes in early June, But she has come a long way reported 31k in February. Of those current reservations, 5,000 include “dibs” in the Ocean One launch edition, even with Fisker’s latest order. Advance payment of $5,000 non-refundable.

So the Ocean One sold out entirely and according to Fisker, represents $350 million in revenue — if and when the SUVs are delivered. Fisker also reported that all 55 test and validation prototypes of the vehicles were completed in the ocean, and two were recently delivered to its headquarters in Manhattan Beach, California.

They will continue testing before the scheduled start of production in November. Fisker explained SUV progress during the second quarter:

I am proud of the seamless collaboration between Fisker and all of our partners and suppliers, ensuring that production begins on November 17, 2022. After driving the test cars on the high-speed track in Italy and on the roads in Los Angeles, I am excited about all the features we will offer in Fisker Ocean and how great it will drive in Fisker Ocean. . The quality of the prototype still needs to be improved before we get to serial production, as many of the parts are early released prototype parts, but it gives us time to do more improvement. I want the Fisker Ocean to be a quality product when it reaches our first paying customers, which means fine-tuning until the first production SUV goes off on November 17th. With strong demand for our vehicles, we look forward to the next phase of our exciting growth plan.

PEAR and Project Ronin Updates

While the majority of the focus of the Fisker Q2 call was on the periphery, the automaker did share a pair of noteworthy tidbits about its two other upcoming EVs. PEAR has over 4,000 reservations, although it hasn’t been officially revealed yet.

It will be mounted on top of the Fisker SLV1 platform when it is built by Foxconn in Ohio, in 2024. Once production ramps up in Lordstown, the two companies expect to produce at least 250,000 PEAR EVs annually. The MSRP is still expected to be under $30,000, and a drivable prototype is expected before the end of 2022.

Not much new to report on Project Ronin, we’re afraid. The Grand Tourer EV will have a battery pack built into its chassis to allow for increased battery size. Fisker shared that he is designing and engineering the third EV in order to “deliver a class-leading combination and redefine the luxury sports car segment.” We should expect to see Project Ronin for the first time next summer – that’s it for now.
