In their press release for the Ocean, Fisker is placing a lot of emphasis on how it's the "world's most sustainable vehicle".

A lot of that sustainability has to do with the interior and the materials they're using.
  • Full-length solar roof:
    • Supporting the car's electric power source, boosting fuel efficiency and lowering carbon dioxide emissions. Result: 1000 free, clean miles per year.
    • As the technology evolves, Fisker will feature integrated hardware solutions for better energy yields and more free, clean miles per year.
  • Fully recycled carpeting:
    • Made from regenerated nylon, which is made from abandoned fishing net waste – pulled from the oceans and aquaculture.
  • Vegan interior:
    • 100% Polycarbonate Polyurethane surfaces and 100% reinforced Rayon backing.
    • Meets stringent chemical emission limits for various VOCs (such as Formaldehyde).
  • Eco-suede: interior textures and patterns:
    • Dinamica: Derived from polyester fibers (T-shirts, fibers) and recycled bottles, plastic, etc.
    • Recycling polyester means reducing energy consumption and CO2 emissions into the atmosphere by 80% compared to the traditional petrol-based polyester production process.
    • Eco-sustainability, as well as the lowest levels of polluting emissions and energy consumption, are guaranteed throughout the whole production cycle.
  • Repurposing rubber waste:
    • Fisker will utilize discarded rubber waste generated during tire manufacturing that will no longer be dumped in landfills.
    • Recycling saves impressive amounts of energy, which ultimately reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
I respect that Fisker has gone the extra mile to make sure the Ocean is as environmentally friendly as possible. Though I'm curious if they can make the batteries and electronics as sustainable as possible too.
