Fisker recently revealed more details about its Force E off-road package designed for the Ocean compact crossover. The package, which was first announced in May and showcased in August during Fisker’s inaugural Product Vision Day in California, includes various upgrades to enable the Ocean to handle rough terrain. The package will be available for purchase in early 2024, with pricing information to be released closer to the date.
Buyers will have the option to order the Force E package when purchasing the vehicle or have it retrofitted post-sale. Initially, the package will only be available on the Ocean’s range-topping Extreme and One grades, with availability on the Ultra grade to be added at a later date.
The upgrades included in the Force E package are specifically designed to enhance the Ocean’s off-road capabilities. They consist of a raised suspension, unique dampers, 20-inch wheels equipped with 33-inch all-terrain tires, flared wheel arches, front and rear skid plates, and an underbody plate to protect the battery.
In addition to these upgrades, the package will also include a drive mode specifically tailored for off-road conditions. This feature will be installed via an over-the-air update, allowing users to easily access it through their Ocean’s infotainment system. Fisker is also offering a separate roof box for buyers looking for extra storage space during outdoor adventures.
The development of the Force E package was entrusted to Magic Works, Fisker’s special projects and personalization department based in the United Kingdom. The same department is currently working on another exciting project for the company, the Fisker Ronin convertible.
Henrik Fisker, CEO and founder of Fisker, stated that the Force E package aims to bring zero-emissions technology to the off-roading world, providing outdoor enthusiasts with a more sustainable way to enjoy their adventures without the negative environmental impact associated with traditional internal-combustion vehicles.
One noteworthy detail is that Ocean deliveries have already commenced in the summer. The crossover is available in four different grades: Sport, Ultra, Extreme, and limited-edition One. The base Sport model, which is front-wheel-drive, features a single 275-horsepower electric motor, allowing it to go from 0 to 60 mph in 6.9 seconds. While Fisker has not provided specific details about the battery, it estimates the EPA-rated range to be around 250 miles.
On the other end of the spectrum, the Extreme and One grades boast a powerful 550-horsepower dual-motor system, enabling them to achieve a claimed 0-60 mph time of 3.6 seconds. These grades come equipped with a 113-kWh battery and have been EPA-rated with a range of 360 miles.
Unfortunately, Fisker has yet to release detailed information about the mid-range Ultra grade. However, given the impressive features and performance capabilities of the other Ocean grades, it’s safe to assume that the Ultra grade will provide a compelling blend of power, efficiency, and off-road capability.
Overall, Fisker’s Force E off-road package for the Ocean compact crossover is set to offer enthusiasts a sustainable way to experience off-roading adventures. With its range of upgrades and specialized features, this package positions the Ocean as a versatile and rugged electric vehicle that can handle various terrains. As Fisker continues to unveil more details about the package, potential buyers can look forward to a new chapter in eco-friendly off-roading.
