Both the Ocean Extreme and Ocean One launch edition models have a starting price of $68,999. These prices don’t include the options and accessories that you can get for the 2023 Ocean.

2023 Fisker Ocean specs: Horsepower, acceleration, and towing
The base-level 2023 Fisker Ocean Sport trim has a front-wheel drive single electric motor setup, while all of the other Ocean trims have a dual-motor all-wheel drive system. The single electric motor generates 275 hp, with a 0-60 mph acceleration time of 6.9 seconds. For the dual-motor system, the output is 550 hp, with a 0-60 mph time as low as 3.6 seconds.

Additionally, the Ocean features “SolarSky” roof-mounted solar panels, which provide up to 2,000 miles of driving range per year.
What is the 2023 Fisker Ocean California Mode?
A standout feature for the 2023 Fisker Ocean is California Mode. When you select California Mode, the side windows, rear glass, and roof retract, transforming the Ocean into a convertible.
Another notable feature for the Ocean is the 17.1-inch touchscreen display, which can rotate horizontally and vertically for either a landscape or portrait position.
