I am sure they are. The I-Pace has been a total flop. They can't even move them with 20k off MSRP.

Is the I-Pace problem-ridden Marko, or was it just poor marketing?


Don't be so sure.:cool:

Dude! It's a Jaguar. Of course it's problem-ridden. Jag's have one of the worst quality ratings of any automobile on the road today.

Although the car has been reviewed well.

I-pace very well reviewed and has been reliable. The problem is Tesla. Model Y is cheaper, faster, better ranger, better tech, supercharging network and with more and more Teslas on the road with over 200-300k it is proven. I've had near zero issues @ 200,000. Someone would have to come out with a pretty awesome product for me to switch.

what do you guys make of the Fisker Ocean?

 

 

https://www.nasdaq.c...pace-2021-02-18

 

 

 

Fisker’s 250-mile to 300-mile range Ocean SUV will begin production in the fourth quarter of 2022. As I said before, it offers a premium, unique design that is also sustainable. The company’s mobile application will cover ordering, insuring and maintaining the vehicle. The Ocean EV model will also include a certain degree of semi-automated driving functionality.

 

All those things make Fisker’s EV model stand out. But at $37,499, the Ocean also has advantages in terms of price. If you decide to buy the vehicle, you will qualify for the Federal Electric Car Tax Credit (which can be as much as $7,500), potentially pushing the price down to about $30,000. But you can also lease the car, starting at $379 per month with a $2,999 down-payment.

Like I also mentioned earlier, Magna International will be responsible for the production side of things. This is not Magna’s first go-around — it has produced the Toyota Supra, Mercedes-Benz G-Class and the Jaguar I-Pace, among others. That asset-light model will help.

 

Magna will get warrants of up to 6% of Fisker’s equity as part of its deal with the company. Even if you don’t like the company on fundamentals, you must admit that FSR stock is doing well. Shares are up over 1o% in just the last three months. So, a potential 6% stake is undoubtedly valuable.

As Marko stated, Tesla and a LOT of other established car companies have electric options now. I think the offering would have to be really compelling to get me to try a new brand and deal with the hassles of version 1. Fisker especially has had a checkered past. Lucid and a few others are trying to go really high end on performance but the market is only so large for $100K USD+ cars. Even less so when the tech bubble bursts again!
