GRAZ, Austria – Fisker Inc. is scheduled to begin production next week as promised a 12 months ago, although some features, including those common to many competing vehicles, might not be ready by 2024.
Early next 12 months, the corporate plans so as to add lane keeping assistance, blind spot monitoring and automatic high beam lights to its premiere edition of the Fisker Ocean One. It plans so as to add lane centering and a traffic jam assistant by the top of 2023. Based on materials made available to journalists, the Power Bank package for charging the house vehicle and the vehicle-to-vehicle charging package needs to be introduced inside the following two years.
CEO Henrik Fisker said his priority is to construct and deliver vehicles with unique features to a growing number of consumers, especially as wireless upgrades allow less critical features to be added later. He emphasized the necessity for the models to be developed rapidly in order that they might make the most of the most recent technology, and never the for much longer processes previously utilized by automobile manufacturers.
“Possibly traditional corporations would say: ‘You recognize, it’s going to take us 4 and a half years – we’ll wait,'” Fisker told reporters. – But we cannot.
Slightly than aligning with what other automobile makers are doing, he said his priority is to make sure that his company’s models – Ocean and future nameplates – offer at the least 4 things that rivals cannot touch.
Within the case of the Ocean, he mentioned:
1. A photovoltaic roof that under ideal conditions can provide as much as 2,000 charging miles per 12 months.
2. Californian mode that lowers all windows and opens the solar roof on the push of a button.
3. Revolver, 17.1 inch screen that will be rotated to a horizontal position to look at movies (when the vehicle is parked).
4. The longest range in its price class. (The estimated 350 ocean miles exceed the Tesla Model Y’s rating of 303 miles.)
And he didn’t even mention a number of the hottest quirks, similar to the small ‘dog window’ behind the C-pillar that flips down, and the ‘taco trays’ that make it easier for front seat passengers to eat fast food – intended to be used only in park, he noticed.
