Spotted: US-based Fisker is developing an all-electric, luxury SUV with a vegan interior. The company is calling the car the world’s most sustainable vehicle.
In addition to the all-electric motor, the Ocean has a solar roof, all-vegan interior and carpets made of recycled material. The company has also said it will use the rubber left from tire manufacturing.
The car promises a 482 km range, and the power to reach 96 km per hour in under three seconds, and will run on a 80-kilowatt-an-hour lithium-ion battery pack. The vehicle also comes with karaoke mode, where lyrics are streamed onto the car’s heads-up display.
Fisker is pitching the Ocean as a more affordable alternative to Tesla’s Model 3. The SUV is scheduled to go on sale in the second half of 2021, with deliveries planned for 2022. The starting price is €33,600, before tax credits.
