Production Is Done

The impact on Magna’s bottom line is significant with the company estimating a reduction in sales for 2024 of roughly $400 million. Fisker and Magna had originally planned to produce around 120,000 Oceans a year.

This news likely comes as no surprise to anyone who has been watching the slow meltdown of Fisker thoughout 2024. As Henrik Fisker’s second attempt to launch an electric vehicle company, the Ocean was supposed to be the vehicle to kick it all off.

Next, the company paused production for six weeks and raised $150 million, but that still wasn’t enough to fix its financial woes. Prices were slashed below $25,000 to clear inventory and raise cash while customers canceled their Ocean reservations as they became understandably worried about the company’s future. With no further Ocean production planned, it’s hard to see any future at all.
