Fisker Ocean Manufacturing Lags Behind Targets: 1,022 Items Produced In Q2 2023

Manufacturing of the all-electric Fisker Ocean mannequin progresses, however the firm as soon as once more missed its personal manufacturing goal.

In accordance with Fisker, through the second quarter of 2023, 1,022 Fisker Ocean have been produced in Graz, Austria (at Magna Steyr’s plant), in comparison with the latest steering of 1,400-1,700.

“Within the second quarter of this yr, 1,022 of the class-leading Fisker Ocean SUVs have been produced in Austria for patrons in addition to advertising and engineering functions.”

Let’s recall that in Q1, manufacturing amounted to 55 items, in comparison with 300 anticipated. It signifies that after the primary half of the yr, the corporate is at 1,077 items, in comparison with the anticipated 1,700-2,000.

Fisker explains that a few of its suppliers weren’t capable of ramp up manufacturing, however issues are enhancing and the meeting fee exceeded 80 items per day on the finish of June. The corporate even stated that expects to provide over 1,400 items in early July and promised a steep ramp-up in Q3 (fee of as much as 6,000/month):

“Just a few suppliers had challenges ramping to the focused 2Q ranges, as they didn’t obtain parts from sub-suppliers in a well timed method. The corporate is targeted on working with all suppliers to ramp to the required volumes. Fisker exceeded its focused meeting fee of 80 items per day on the finish of June and expects automobiles produced to exceed 1,400 in early July.”

Will probably be very fascinating to see the progress within the second half of the yr. The preliminary goal of as much as 42,400 Fisker Ocean items in 2023 was already scrapped (diminished to 32,000-36,000).
