2024 Fisker Ocean EV SUV Adds Meaty Force-E Off-Road Edition

Fisker had a big night, revealing the four-door, five-passenger Ronin EV convertible GT sports car, the compact Pear EV SUV and its Houdini trunk, and a pickup version of the Ocean EV SUV dubbed the Alaska EV truck. But it also showed off something a little more immediately tangible with the off-road edition of the Ocean, which is called the 2024 Fisker Ocean Force-E, adding plenty of overlanding gear and gimmicks. Here’s what we learned about it last night.

The Force-E edition builds and enhances on the existing Ocean EV SUV with mods. Anybody who might already have taken delivery (not many yet) or placed an order for their own Ocean can relax knowing that the new Force-E kit will not only be available to order from the factory, but also a retrofit for existing models that can be installed for you by the company.

Extended Fenders

The character of the Ocean Force-E SUV is mostly defined by its new, wider stance. The Ocean’s fenders have been extended beyond the body with a cool sculpted diamond impression pattern effect. The stretched fenders help cover the bigger wheel and tire package.

Fresh Wheels

The Ocean Force-E SUV rides on chunky 33-inch tires that surround 20-inch rims. The wheel design is a three-blade element of what looks like fractured metal with bolts around the wheel perimeter. It makes the wheels look like broken blender blades, or a pile of razors, and it’s pretty cool.

Force-E Graphics

The dark appearance of the show model at its reveal featured black paint with orange contrasted “Force-E” graphics, with a little person climbing in the graphic’s image to really hammer home the outdoor aesthetic.

Chassis Improvements

Fisker says the Ocean Force-E comes with a higher ground clearance with protective underbody plating, structural front and rear skid plates, specialized dampers, and improved ramp angles at the front and rear when compared to a standard Ocean. More details should be available soon.

Roof Features

The addition of a custom roof rack on the Ocean Force-E may seem counter-intuitive, considering the standard SUV comes with a solar roof feature. That solar roof is said to offer 1,500 miles of additional range a year from idle charging in environments with fairly clear weather, like California. However, the Force-E’s roof rack does come with a webbed bottom, meaning sunlight should be able to still pass through (perhaps somewhat limited) to the solar panels when it’s not loaded with gear.

Rear Features

Both the front and rear end of the Ocean Force-E have been tweaked with slight modifications to the bumpers, which now extend to the sides into the lower extended fender flares both front and back, and each angle also now sports a bright orange tow hook, for help getting out of stuck-y situations if you do go off-road.

Front Features

Along with the tow hook and extended bumper, the Ocean Force-E gets a unique triple foglight running down the bottom of the fascia. Overall, the Force-E’s aesthetic is aggressive and a little PlaySkool, perhaps more show than go (off-road), but it’s clear there is some thought to the package.


The startup CEO Henrik Fisker announced that the Fisker Ocean SUV’s Force-E off-road package will be available in the first quarter of 2024 as an additional-cost package. Pricing hasn’t been announced just yet.

The standard Ocean that the Force-E is built on is good for a range of up to 360 EPA-estimated miles on a single full charge of its 113 kWh battery pack, though that’s a very generous estimate. We’re curious what real-world range will look like, and if it might ease our anxiety about off-roading an EV. That said, the Ocean’s base range is better than any of its competitors, so perhaps it’s the best one for going off-grid.
