Fisker Dramatically Reduces Ocean Prices by up to K in Battle Against Bankruptcy

Fisker Dramatically Reduces Ocean Prices by up to $24K in Battle Against Bankruptcy

It has not been smooth sailing for the upstart EV maker as of late. Like a captain battling the high seas, Fisker’s leader Helen steered the ship into a six-week pause to make repairs and chart a new course.

But now the skies are clearing. Anchors aweigh! Fisker announced today it is dropping Ocean prices between ports worth $14-24k. The range-topping Extreme model’s admission is slashed from a steep $63k down to a more reasonable $39k.

Meanwhile, the entry Sport and midship Ultra trims will set sail at affordable $27k and $37k respectively.

It seems Fisker’s gamble to cut anchor and explore more accessible waters may help them avoid the rocky shoals of insolvency. With calmer financial waters and new pricing winds in its sails, it looks like Fisker’s voyage is back on course.

Captain Helen and the Fisker crew have taken drastic measures to sail into calmer financial waters. After weathering six weeks of repairs in the dock, they’ve emerged with a new pricing strategy to lure more customers aboard.

The entry-level Sport model sees the biggest discount yet – its flag is lowered a steep $14k from $41k down to just $27k. Meanwhile, the mid-range Ultra trim line gets racks off a hearty $18k, its mast cut from $55k down to $37k.

But the most impressive drop in the draft is reserved for the top-of-the-line Extreme. This flagship model has been lightened at a whopping $24k, its previous ballast of $64k is now a surprisingly affordable $40k.

With these oceanic price cuts of $14-24k across the trim lines, it seems Fisker is banking on broader appeal to power them past the maelstrom and towards smoother sailing. Only time will tell if these dramatic discounts will help them chart a course to solvency. For now, fair winds and following seas for this plucky EV startup!

Captain Helen and her crew at Fisker hope to sail into calmer financial waters with a new pricing strategy. Effective this Friday, the 2023 Ocean lineup will see discounts of $14-24K across all trim lines.

The reduced rates apply specifically to models with the new 2024 Ocean OS 2.0 software installed. In a statement, Fisker said they aim to position the Ocean as “a more affordable and compelling EV choice.”

But questions remain about how far these price cuts will extend. Car and Driver put out a call to the Fisker signal tower to ask if the discounts will carry over to 2024 production as well. For now, strong winds have stymied communications — we await word back from the ship.

Only time will tell if slashing anchor weights for 2023 can help Fisker chart a steady course. With smoother seas, they may yet escape the maelstrom. This plucky startup’s navigation remains uncharted waters. Stay tuned for updates as the story develops!

The dramatic Ocean pricing update comes as Fisker crews battle rough financial waters. Their troubles arose in February when an ominous earnings call forecasted dark skies. Mass layoffs soon followed.

Last week, production was paused for a full six weeks. Sources said Captain Helen anchored the ships to repair leaks and navigate rescue plans. While one investor re-pledged support, talks with a mystery automaker reportedly foundered – leaving Fisker adrift without a $150 million lifeline.

Making waves, the New York Stock Exchange also dropped Fisker from its docks, signaling the company’s dire straits. Now delisted, it seems bankruptcy may have been on the horizon.

Hoping this new pricing can calm the storm, Fisker is gambled all on changing financial winds. Only the next quarter will reveal if discounts can steer them from the shoals of insolvency. For now, all eyes watch their navigation in these treacherous financial seas.
