Fisker exploring an increase to Fisker Ocean production in late 2023 as US allocation of Ocean Ultra and Sport is completely sold out.
Today, Fisker confirmed they are indeed sold out of Ocean Ultra and Sport trims allocated for US customers in 2023. As we noted yesterday, the Ocean Extreme was still available for pre-order here in the United States at the time. The company opened pre-orders for US customers on Sunday after the Senate approved the Inflation Reduction Act.
As early as today, congress will take a vote on the historic Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. The US House of Representatives is expected to pass the legislation. Then, it will head over to President Biden for signature. It will have sweeping changes to the Federal EV tax system. The 200,000 manufacturer cap will be eliminated. This will require all vehicles to be produced in North America in order to qualify for the EV tax credit.
In light of this, Fisker proactively opened pre-ordering for US reservation holders before the Federal EV tax credit system changes. Earlier this week, Fisker gave all US reservation holders a chance to retain eligibility for the $7,500 Federal EV tax credit. At the time, Fisker told US reservation holders supplies were limited. In less than a week, 2023 US allotments of Fisker Ocean Ultra and Sport trim levels are sold out. This latest announcement follows Ocean One completely selling out in 9 launch markets during the month of July.
On November 18, 2022, Fisker will begin taking orders for Ocean Extreme in select global launch markets. This will be followed by opening of pre-orders for Ocean Ultra and Sport trims in Q1 2023 for launch markets outside of the US. The company continues to take reservations for Fisker Ocean and Fisker PEAR world-wide.
Fisker tells us today they are exploring US manufacturing sites for the Fisker Ocean. This will allow customers here in the United States access to an EV tax credit in 2024. Furthermore, the company is also considering an increase to Fisker Ocean production in late 2023. This will require Fisker to work with Magna and other companies that supply parts to the company.
There are only 97 days until the start of production. This past week Fisker visited the carbon-neutral factory in Austria. The company is preparing for large-scale manufacturing with Magna. Fisker says they established a “Mission Control” center. This will allow the two companies to meet daily to ensure high-quality manufacturing.
Additionally, Fisker and Magna teams are working closely to make sure operations run as smoothly as possible. The companies are working together on logistics for parts coming into the plant, vehicle handovers, port operations, and outbound logistics to manage customer deliveries in nine launch markets.
