Fisker introduces Fisker Finance; Reaffirms Appointment of Retail Finance Partners, Auto News, ET Auto
New Delhi: US electric vehicle automaker Fisker Inc recently launched Fisker Finance, a digital finance platform offering seamless and convenient loan purchase options to Fisker customers. The company also reaffirmed the appointment of Chase in the United States and Santander Consumer Finance in Europe as retail financing partners, as noted in its February 2022 earnings release, with further announcements to come.
Fisker Finance expects to begin offering financing in the fourth quarter of 2022. Fisker plans to name financing partners in other regions, with further announcements to come.
Beginning with buyers of the class-leading limited-edition five-passenger all-electric Fisker Ocean One, Fisker Finance’s direct-to-consumer digital platform will enable customers to apply for vehicle financing, receive competitive decisions and as well as the ability to finance vehicle accessories such as home charging equipment and factory-installed accessories.
Production of the Fisker Ocean is on track from November 2022 at a carbon-neutral factory in Austria, according to a company statement.
“Fisker is first and foremost a digital car company, focused on a seamless customer experience every step of the way. Providing financing options on our digital platform, including factory-installed financing options, is part of providing our customers with a completely hassle-free and time-friendly experience,” said Henrik Fisker, President- CEO of Fisker.
The automaker also aims to provide insurance on our digital platform as we designed and engineered the Fisker Ocean with affordable premiums in mind, he said.
On July 1, Fisker began offering early bird holders in select markets the chance to get a Fisker Ocean One by pledging a $5,000 deposit.
This pre-order deposit allows Fisker to plan its build more accurately, as customers provide information regarding desired specifications, including exterior and interior colors and accessories.
As Fisker plans the production of each vehicle, Fisker Ocean One buyers will finalize pre-order specifications and the company will assign a specific number ranging from #1 to #5000 to each limited-edition vehicle.
The company further added that reservation holders who opt out of the Fisker Ocean One remain in line for future versions of the emissions-free Fisker Ocean SUV.
