Octopus EV brings the Fisker Ocean Extreme SUV to Europe

Each new model of EV gives drivers more choice, drives down costs & promotes the switch to full electrification, says Oliver Boots, CCO at Octopus EV

California-based EV company Fisker designs and develops individual mobility in alignment with nature. Passionately driven by a vision of a clean future for all, the company is on a mission to create the world’s most sustainable and emotional electric vehicles.

Launched in 2018 to ease the transition to sustainable transport, Octopus Electric Vehicles is part of the award winning Octopus Energy Group. The EV arm of the many-tentacled company now has over 85 electric cars now available from 28 different brands as part of its all-in-one service. Octopus leases the cars, instals charge points, provides specialist EV energy tariffs, and offers access to over 500,000 public charge points across Europe via Octopus Electroverse All.

The EV giant is on a mission to not just make EV uptake easy, but also financially palatable through its salary sacrifice schemes — an employee benefit that makes driving a brand new electric car cheaper than the petrol or diesel equivalent through tax savings.

The newest car in Octopus’ arsenal? Fisker Ocean Extreme SUV.

Partnering to boost EV uptake

“The U.S. has a long, proud automotive history and so it’s fantastic to see new entrants joining the electric revolution from across the pond,” says Oliver Boots, Chief Commercial Officer at Octopus Electric Vehicles.
“Each new manufacturer and model of electric car gives drivers more choice, helps drive down costs and gets us closer to making the switch to having fully electric roads. We’ve seen a wonderful response to the Fisker Ocean in test-driving, and we’re thrilled to be able to unlock savings for drivers through salary sacrifice.” 

Boots has been at Octopus since 2021, having taken over as CCO in 2022. Previously he has led teams at Volkswagen, CarNext.com, Leaseplan and Hyundai. 

Fisker has partnered with Octopus EV to bring its new premium Fisker Ocean Extreme SUV to the UK, offering an incredible range of up to 440 miles — the longest range of any new electric SUV in its class sold in European markets today.  

The agreement, which covers an initial fleet of 200 Fisker Ocean Extreme vehicles, signifies the start of a long-term collaborative journey between Octopus and Fisker. 

Fisker has lowered pricing for the top-level Fisker Ocean Extreme worldwide – in the UK market from £60,880 to £57,900 – offering price adjustments to existing Extreme customers. 

“Besides the new pricing, we are also excited to announce this lease collaboration in the UK market to enable more customers to have access to our fully electric Ocean,” shares Henrik Fisker, Fisker Inc. Chairman, CEO and Founder.

A designer at heart, Fisker has worked at McKinsey and Company, Aston Martin, Ford and BMW to name a few. 

“I am looking forward to seeing more and more UK customers using the leasing opportunity to experience the Ocean’s unique design – featuring sustainable materials, best-in-class range and innovative technical features such as SolarSky, California Mode, and a large touchscreen that can also be enjoyed in horizontal Hollywood Mode.”
