Quote from Fisker spokesperson: “Our dealer network keeps growing: we are excited to welcome our new dealer partners to the Fisker family and look forward to them opening for business. Expanding our dealer presence in our home state of California is a priority for us, and customers can now see the all-electric Ocean SUV in person in both Southern California and the Bay Area. Adding New Jersey to our East Coast dealer network, we now have an expanded dealer presence in New York state, and New Jersey. With the waiver of the $2,438 Destination and Handling fee on 2023 Extremes and Ultras, we’re delivering even more value to new Fisker customers.”

Price Reductions

On March 27, Fisker announced reductions in the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) on many model year 2023 Fisker Oceans in the US. Fisker lowered the MSRP of the 2023 Ocean Extreme trim by $24,000, to $37,499 from $61,499 MSRP.1
