Fisker Family,

Really excited to read about the quantum leap of this
'next generation' Silicon Carbide Inverters

When Henrik stated that Fisker Inc can make late-call decisions
(12-18 months) before SOP, this is exactly the kind of decisions he means

ADVANTAGES of SiC Inverters

~ Less weight (better mileage range & handling)
~ Lots more power and torque (happier clients)
~ Enables use of smaller battery pack (saves monies & weight)
~ Less cooling needed (saves cost & weight)
~ Faster Charging Speed (less downtime at Charger station)

Do we know this technology is being used in the Ocean?

Something changed. Originally, Fisker was estimating 300 miles per charge. It was fairly recent that they upped it to 350.

i think they were also saying charging up to 150 kWH and I have recently seen they will be able to charge up to 250 which hopefully will make it very competitive

I have to admit that I'm a bit apprehensive about the late-call decisions. Does this mean that Fisker is using equipment before it's been thoroughly tested?

Not at all. Fisker Inc is at the forefront of technology and can quickly (compared to OEM car makers) use the latest, greatest tech!
Tesla & now McLaren both use SiC Inverters

I don't mean just the converters; I mean in general. For instance, Henrik said that the reason the Ocean will get more miles per charge is that he chose a newer battery than other companies. I'm not trying to be a nay-sayer. Obviously I want Fisker to succeed and I want a Blue Planet Ocean in my driveway to break up my street's depressing sea of white.

Tesla is using CATL for their LFP batteries now. I'm guessing it's probably the same cells going into the Ocean Sport. Ford and VW and many Chinese brands are also using CATL's LFP and NMC battery cells. So I don't think it should be a problem. CATL seems to be a well run company.
