Elon Musk drops by the Full Send Podcast, the hosts trash Fisker, Elon laughs, and shows he isn’t familiar with who is building Fisker Ocean.
Today, a video of Elon Musk began trending in the #2 top spot on YouTube. In the Full Send Podcast video interview, Elon talks about Aliens, Challenges Putin to UFC, and Predicts WW3. Yes, you read that right. Now, we don’t usually ever comment too much about Elon Musk. However, the hosts take a shot at Fisker and Elon responds.
Elon was asked about why Tesla is so dominant while the hosts of the show more or less trash Fisker. Elon responds laughing out loud when one of the hosts asks, “Is Fisker even a thing?” He goes on to speak about Tesla’s dominance by saying, “Well, the hard problem is not making a prototype. The hard problem is making the factory. So the factory is like 100 times, maybe a 1,000 times, harder than the prototype.”
While a popular podcast, everyone on it including Elon Musk display their ignorance when it comes to Fisker and other topics. They clearly don’t understand Fisker’s business and the company’s asset-light strategy. Fisker has partnered with Magna, the same company that builds the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes G-Class, to build the Fisker Ocean. So, if the hardest part is building the factory, Fisker is ahead of the game.
Fisker is not building a factory. They’ve partnered with Magna who already has an operational factory in Graz, Austria. On the Fisker Q2 2022 earnings call earlier this week, Fisker said that Magna has already built 55 Fisker Ocean prototypes on the production line. Not to mention, start of production is on track for November 17th. It looks like a lot of EV competitors are going to be surprised later this year and we’ll see who has the last laugh.
