Fisker to build Ocean-based electric Popemobile


Fisker is yet to build civilian versions of the Ocean electric SUV, but before that, the company is planning to deliver a customized version for Pope next year. Fisker co-founders Henrik Fisker and Geeta Fisker presented a concept for Pope during their recent visit to the Vatican City.

I got inspired reading that Pope Francis is very considerate about the environment and the impact of climate change on future generations. The interior of the Fisker Ocean papal transport will contain a variety of sustainable materials, including carpets made from recycled plastic bottles from the ocean. – Henrik Fisker

A couple of renderings released by Fisker showcases a large all-glass cupola, which appears to occupy the same space as the sunroof in the regular model. The rest of the vehicle remains the same.

Fisker hopes to start series production on November 17, 2022, and the production is said to be outsourced to Austria’s Magna Steyr. The company claims to have received more than 16,000 reservations. Prices in the U.S. start at $37,499 (excluding subsidies).
