Fisker Ocean – What Can It Tow?

Me
Hi, I’m Chris. About Me

You may not be aware of the Fisker brand. However, the CEO Henrik Fisker has a long and established background in the automotive world designing cars such as the Aston Martin DB9. The Fisker Ocean is not Henrik’s first endeavour into making his own car. In 2011 he developed and produced the Fisker Karma, a sporty PHEV. However, his new car the Ocean is a compact SUV BEV and importantly it will have an official towing capacity.

Fisker Ocean Towing Capabilties

The cheapest Fisker Ocean FWD Sport at under $40,000 with its 2,040 lbs of towing capacity may meet the needs of a few people who only tow light trailers over short distances.

However, the AWD versions of the Fisker Ocean I think are much more interesting with their towing capacity of over 4,000 lbs and their EPA-rated range of 360 miles.

If you check out the link to my database above you will still that towing capacity and range are a significant cut above the competition from the likes of the Nissan Ariya and VW ID.4.

The AWD versions of the Fisker Ocean even offer a higher towing capacity to the Tesla Model Y (3,500 lb) with a comparable range too. Though its charging speed is not quite up there.

Fisker Ocean Review

My Thoughts On The Fisker Ocean…

A 4,000 lb towing capacity can more than meet the needs of many small RV enthusiasts for instance.

Add on top of that one of the highest ranges available, and it puts to shame other premium BEV SUVs such as the original Audi E-Tron.

However, its obviously Tesla and the Model Y in particular that the Fisker Ocean is aiming at, and it would appear its going to be able to put up a good fight.

Though as Mr Musk has previously stated, ‘prototypes are easy, production is hard‘. Hence, its going to be interesting to see if the Fisker Ocean can live up to the claims.
