Fisker have announced that the Fisker Ocean Extreme electric car has announced that the all-electric Fisker Ocean Extreme equipped with optional 22-inch wheels and tyres achieved a combined WLTP range of up to 436 miles (701km). This news follows the company’s test results announced earlier this month of 440 miles (707km) on standard 20-inch wheels and tyres.
Both findings mean the Fisker Ocean Extreme, including the limited edition Fisker Ocean One, has the longest range of any battery electric SUV sold in Europe today. This is good news and will help reduce range anxiety, and hopefully, speed up the transition to electric vehicles.
Henrik Fisker, CEO of Fisker, said: “These WLTP range results for the 20” and 22” wheels and tyres are another example of the Fisker Ocean leading with design, innovation and sustainability.
“Our talented engineering team has gone over every detail to deliver the best-in-market range combined with high-quality craftsmanship to our Fisker Ocean Extreme European customers.”
Thanks to the sophisticated engineering of the battery, motors, brakes and installing the larger 22-inch wheels and tyres results in the increased range with minimal impact. In addition, the aerodynamic design of the wheel arch lining and underbody elements of the Fisker Ocean SUV optimise airflow, further enhancing the vehicle’s performance and driving experience.
The Fisker Ocean zero-emissions electric SUV combines ingenious engineering, innovation, affordability and sustainability in three versions: Extreme, Ultra and Sport, with some trims sold out in several launch markets.
Fisker recently announced that the Fisker Ocean electric car had completed and met all applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) testing required for US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) self-certification and meets New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) standards for a five-star rating.
