Fisker Ocean looks to be Vibe sized

Post by SeattleJeremy » Mon Jan 06, 2020 1:13 pm

I couldn't find wheel base or overall height information, but the Ocean seems to be about the same size as the Vibe. I love that the rear and even side rear glass all rolls down.

If they pull this off it will be a compelling car (despite their insistence it's an SUV)

I thought Fisker made scissors :o Never heard of this upcoming electric car. Hope it succeeds!

You're thinking of Fiskars.

My Wife owns a Leaf, and this seems like a good alternative for another hatchback.

How do you guys like the Leaf?

I think the electric space is going to be really interesting going forward, as prices come down and range increases (or solutions to mitigate range anxiety/better fast charging become more widespread).

We did a big summer road trip this past year. It makes you appreciate the ICE. I don't think I'd have problems with hour-long charges, but don't like to be locked into a particular location.

However, I'm hoping my Vibe will still be kicking for another 3-4 years at least... and by that time it would be nice to go electric. I wouldn't mind something sooner (my aftermarket stereo is dead, it does need a little work), but I still love my Vibe and know that once I've done the work that does need to be done it should be good for a while yet.
