In-Depth Look: First Fisker Ocean One Review

Fisker Ocean One review evaluating comfort, performance, software, exterior and interior features, infotainment, safety, solar roof, and offering final recommendations for the newly purchased electric SUV.

Today, we are thrilled to share the first Fisker Ocean One review. Earlier this week, Daniel Simonsen received his limited edition launch vehicle, making him one of the first individuals in the world to own the Fisker Ocean One. It is worth noting that this is the second delivery of the Fisker Ocean One in Denmark. Fisker recorded everything on video, showcasing Daniel and his Ocean One electric SUV with its Night Drive exterior, Black Abyss Plus interior, and 22″ F3b SlipStream wheels. Now, Daniel takes out his phone and provides us with an automotive video review of his Fisker Ocean One. Daniel acknowledges that he is not a professional car reviewer but has been driving a Tesla Model Y Performance for a significant period of time. In this review, he compares these two cars as an enthusiast rather than an expert. So, let’s dive right in!

Comfort, Performance, & Software

Starting with comfort, suspension, and noise, the Fisker Ocean One impresses him. In these areas, he says it actually outperforms the Tesla Model Y Performance. The ride quality and noise insulation of the Fisker Ocean are commendable especially with 22″ F3b SlipStream wheels. The Fisker Ocean is one of the most comfortable cars Daniel has ever driven, including Audi, BMW, and Tesla vehicles.

Moving on, despite the concerns and speculations surrounding the software, he finds the Fisker’s software to be surprisingly well-developed. While Tesla may have the edge in terms of software, considering the time Fisker has had, they have made significant progress and deserve recognition.

Exterior and Interior Features

Daniel shows off the Fisker Oceans charging port and sturdy door handles, contrary to some reports claiming otherwise. The interior of the vehicle is beautifully designed, with attention to detail and quality materials. He says the back seats offer ample room, comparable to the Tesla Model Y. Daniel goes on to share that the storage capacity in his Fisker Ocean One is slightly less than his Model Y, with 812 liters in the trunk compared to the Model Y’s 860 liters. However, the Model Y offers additional storage in the front trunk, giving it an advantage in terms of overall storage space.

Infotainment and System Features

Moving on to the infotainment system, the Daniel shares that Fisker’s system is responsive, though not as quick as the Tesla Model Y. While voice command functionality is currently unavailable, the Fisker’s GPS system is effective, providing route information, remaining battery percentage, and other essential details. The menu navigation and system performance are generally fast and efficient, making it a user-friendly experience.

Safety Features and SolarSky Roof

The Fisker Ocean One offers useful camera features part of the ADAS system, allowing you to switch between various camera views, including a 360-degree view. Surprisingly, the Fisker Ocean One already features a 3D surround camera system, adding an extra level of convenience and safety to the driving experience. The graphic representation of the car’s surroundings is clear and helpful during parking maneuvers.

Daniel even briefly covered the Fisker Ocean SolarSky roof. This Ocean One and Extreme feature has often been a topic of concern for its grid pattern of shadows. However, Ocean customers voiced their concern and it appears Fisker has listened. According to Daniel, his Fisker Ocean One had tinted panels that effectively block out excess sunlight without causing annoyance to the driver or passengers. From the sound of it, it appears Fisker has resolved this issue.

Final Thoughts and Recommendations

In conclusion, Daniel says in his automotive video review choosing between the Tesla Model Y Performance and the Fisker Ocean electric SUV depends on your individual needs and priorities. The Tesla Model Y is a compelling option for those who value a mature UI/UX experience, an extensive charging network, and ample storage space.

On the other hand, he says the Fisker Ocean One offers several key advantages. It provides an impressive range (707 km), almost 40% longer than the Tesla Model Y Performance based on WLTP estimated rating, which is a remarkable achievement. Additionally, Daniel says the Fisker Ocean offers superior comfort, excellent suspension, and a tight turning radius, making it an enjoyable car to drive.

Furthermore, the Fisker Ocean One’s focus on sustainable materials and unique technologies, such as the innovative sunroof and the California Mode, sets it apart in terms of sustainability and environmental consciousness.

Ultimately, Daniel says the choice between these two vehicles will depend on your specific preferences and requirements. Both the Tesla Model Y Performance and the Fisker Ocean One have their strengths and weaknesses, and it’s essential to consider what matters most to you as a driver.

  1. Well done Daniel a fair review that has great points to compare the Ocean SUV EV to the Tesla model Y EV. I am going also for the overall comfort performance and looks of the Fisker Ocean over the Tesla Model Y. I can wait for the over the air updates in the future that will further enhance the quality of the Fisker Ocean. Apparently, the help of Abby Eaton’s professional knowhow in racing has gone a long way to help produce an overall success in comfort and handling it seems…hey Henrik fantastic design teamwork!

  2. Sounds like Fisker is doing better than I expected at making a decent car. Of course, Model Y Performance is considerably less expensive, so that will matter to a lot of people.

    But here it is, the first review even if not by a professional, and with 65,000 reservations the first review with deliveries just starting should cause a lot of excitement and people commenting, right? Two days later I am the second comment. Are there other more popular Fisker dedicated websites?

    If the UI works fine and everything else is great, why the trickle of deliveries seven months into production with a claimed 300 being made a week the last month or so? If it ain’t the car it is the buyers not existing.

    1. It’s true that affordability plays a significant role in consumers’ decision-making process, and price can often be a determining factor. However, it’s important to remember that each brand has its own unique value proposition and target audience. Clearly Tesla is the brand for you, but not many that visit this site. Instead of assuming the absence of buyers, it may be more reasonable to consider that the production capacity might not have reached its full potential yet. By the way, there are loads of comments about this review on Fiskerati Forums. Maybe you should join so we can discuss in real-time?
