The California-based EV maker also says that it has more than 62,000 hand-raisers and 17,300 paid reservations for the Ocean EV including fleet orders from various companies. Fisker Chairman and CEO, Henrik Fisker shares that the company's reservation and the order process have been quality-based and transparent from the very start. “As we get closer to launch, we will be working with our prospective owners to transition their reservations into contracted orders. We have many loyal supporters of the company waiting for their Ocean, and the reservation system is purposely designed to be fair to those who reserve with the intention to ultimately take delivery," he adds.
Concerning the brand's experience centres, Fisker also notes that with less than 500 days to start production, the company is also focused to make the experience of the customers more immersive.
