Interview: Henrik Fisker, CEO, Fisker

Fisker Hero

Following on from the reveal of the production-intent Ocean EV at La Motor Show, Henrik Fisker sits down with CDN deputy editor Michael Nash to explain how the model has exceeded expectations of the prototype, and what 2022 holds for the company

Michael Nash: How was the Ocean EV received at the LA Motor Show?

Henrik Fisker: It was perfect timing to show our vehicle in production form. We did get a lot of attention as many people were seeing real metal for the first time since the start of the pandemic. I think people have had an overdose of CGI and sitting behind computers for two years.

It was also fortunate that we were one of the companies that had something new to show. People were excited to see how the production form of the vehicle was different from the concept, and I’m pleased to say that it is one of these rare occasions where the production vehicle came out better – more exaggerated, and more sculptural than the original show car.

MN: What are the key differences between the production-intent model and the initial show car, and how did these come about?
