- Technology-driven Danish ride-hailing service places its largest single vehicle order
- Fisker Ocean SUV will join an all-electric vehicle fleet that will operate across Denmark LOS
ANGELES / COPENHAGEN (October 21, 2020) – Fisker Inc. (Fisker) – designer and manufacturer of the world’s most emotion-stirring, eco-friendly electric vehicles and advanced mobility solutions – today announced the signing of a vehicle order for 300 units with Viggo, the technology-driven Danish ride-hailing service.
Viggo, founded in 2019, is aiming to challenge the standards for urban transportation through advanced data-driven innovation, zero-emission cars and Scandinavian simplicity. Since founding, Viggo has built a network of more than 55 (100 projected by the end of the year) electric cars and delivered more than 100,000 rides. The company will expand into Norway in 2021 and the 300 Fisker Ocean all-electric luxury SUVs, to be delivered by Q4 2022, will be a strong part of their Scandinavian expansion. Viggo’s focus is on business users and has brought many large multinational companies into its customer/user base.
“We created the Fisker Ocean with space, range and value as product priorities, attributes that are also very important to Viggo, their drivers and customers,” said Henrik Fisker, chairman and CEO of Fisker. “As someone born and raised in Denmark, I am also personally proud that this Danish company has chosen to work with Fisker and put their confidence in our company and products. This agreement is the first of many multi-vehicle orders that we are planning to sign with both mobility companies like Viggo and large corporate fleets.”
Fisker recently announced a strategic cooperation with Magna International supporting the codevelopment and manufacture of the Fisker Ocean SUV, projected to launch in Q4 2022. The Ocean will be assembled by Magna in Europe and is poised to deliver class-leading range, functional interior space with third-row seating and overall vehicle performance.
On behalf of Viggo, CEO Kenneth Herschel and Chairman Peter Bardenfleth-Hansen made the following comment:
“We founded Viggo to create a better and more sustainable experience all around for our customers, and so our choice of vehicle is a critically important part of that service delivery. The seating and flexible space of the Fisker Ocean, together with the projected cost of operation, makes this vehicle a very logical choice for our fleet.”
