The £37k electric Fisker Ocean Sport gets official range of 288 miles
Fisker confirms entry-level SUV's WLTP figure
The Fisker Ocean Sport has achieved a respectable 288 miles of driving range from its WLTP tests. Fisker cares to tell us because initial estimates lowballed the range at a modest 250 miles.
Tested on 20in wheels, the US carmaker has now confirmed its entry-level fully electric SUV does a crazy 38 miles more. Chuckle not – with regular nightly charging, that’s the kind of range that means plug-in hybrid drivers never need to refuel.
The Sport variant has just the one motor driving the front axle to propel almost two and a half tonnes of heft. That said, it has a top speed of 117mph and covers 0-62mph in a not-exactly-sluggish 7.4 seconds.
The Ocean Sport can also support up to 200kW DC charging, giving up to 188 miles in around 30 minutes. Available from £36,900, it’s a giant leap to the fancier top-end Ocean Extreme which is priced from £60,880.
Boss Henrik Fisker said: “At its core, the Fisker Ocean Sport brings the thrill of electric driving to customers with a comprehensive package, while making it accessible and efficient.
"The range performance confirmed from the intensive WLTP testing procedure reinforces the strength of the Ocean Sport’s offering even further, providing comprehensive performance to meet customers’ needs.”
