2024 Fisker Ocean

Fisker has been dominating the news cycle recently, but the all-electric startup caught everyone’s attention when it introduced enormous price cuts for the Ocean SUV. The Ocean went from being an electric SUV with a starting price tag of $38,999 to being one that costs $24,999 overnight. While that price tag might draw some interested buyers in, a new report from Motor1 claims that it the $25,000 Fisker Ocean might be too good to be true.

The outlet conducted extensive research and reached out to Classic Fisker in Atlanta, which is the only dealership that’s currently listed as a “Dealer Partner” on the automaker’s website, to see if it could find a $25,000 Ocean to buy. Spoiler alert, it wasn’t able to.

Motor1 states that Fisker didn’t return multiple requests for comment and was on hold for approximately 20 minutes while trying to get in contact with one of the automaker’s sales consultants. The outlet then sent an email request to get more information on the 2023 Ocean Sport through Fisker’s website, but hasn't heard back yet.

While the outlet had a lot of issues getting someone from Fisker to help with purchasing a $25,000 Ocean, Motor1 did get a hold of someone at Classic Fisker in Atlanta. The unnamed specialist at the Fisker dealer said that buyers couldn’t get a $25,000 Ocean Sport. Furthermore, he said that mid-level Ocean Ultras, which saw their price drop by $18,000 to $34,999, weren't available either.

"I would caution you and other customers —Sports don’t exist right now," the specialist at Classic Fisker told Motor1. "The $25,000 Sports, they’re not even here in the US right now. The Ultras at $35,000, they don’t exist in the US right now."

There is a silver lining with the Fisker Ocean Ultra. The specialist at Classic Fisker confirmed that the automaker has some available Ultras on hand in its national inventory, but stated that all of them had options that raised their price tags well above the promised $35,000 figure. "The base MSRP is not reflective of the optioned MSRP," the specialist stated. "When you look at this sitting inventory, there are no base Ultras available."

Additionally, extra Fisker Sport models heading into the U.S. will likely be tied up getting into the country because of the Key Bridge collapse in Baltimore, MD. The specialist claimed that shoppers looking to buy an Ocean should look at the range-topping Extreme, which received a price cut to $37,499. Those, though, will be hard to find at Fisker’s updated price because of any installed options, but they are reportedly available.

With the latest report from Motor1 and after months of hearing about owners having issues with their Fisker Ocean and the automaker burning through money on its way to bankruptcy, we have to recommend that shoppers stay as far away as possible from the brand. Even if shoppers can find a $25,000 Ocean, the question of how they’ll get the vehicle serviced or updated has been unanswered. There’s also the issue of purchasing a car that’s becoming harder to trade in and one that will likely leave you upside down on a loan.
