Fisker Ocean electric SUV has 7,000 reservations, startup teases future models – Roadshow

Fisker future lineup

The future of Fisker of all goes according to plan.


Fisker, which pins its hopes of rising from the ashes in the Ocean electric SUV, dished out a hard figure to judge just how much interest there is in its upcoming EV. It’s nothing spectacular, but there’s certainly interest.

The company said Friday it has 7,062 reservations for the Ocean. Compared to recent news surrounding preorders (I’m thinking Tesla Cybertruck and Ford Bronco) it’s a drop in the bucket. However, it goes to show there is an audience for Fisker’s SUV with oodles of sustainable materials inside.

The reservations come from 30 countries and Fisker said the figure virtually sells out the first planned...

'Shoulders, knees and toes to follow': Britons react to Boris Johnson's new coronavirus slogan 'Hands, Face, Space'

The government’s new coronavirus slogan “Hands, Face, Space” has been compared to the popular children’s song “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes” after the prime minister introduced it in a press briefing.

Boris Johnson announced on Friday he would delay lifting more lockdown restrictions as positive cases of Covid-19 rose across England. It comes after the health secretary announced new lockdown guidance in northern England on Thursday night just hours before the rules came into effect.

The new mantra of “hands, face, space” is to remind people to wash their hands, cover their faces and maintain space betwen themselves and others. But some are criticising the prime minister for his over-dependence on “punchy” slogans.

“Wasn’t clever the first time and we are done with you...

New SpaceX Starship prototype passes key test; Elon Musk says it will fly ‘soon’ – CNET

Putting humans in the picture gives a better idea of just how big the Starship orbital prototype will be. SpaceX founder Elon Musk shared this behind-the-scenes look at workers in Texas with Starship on a transporter in September 2019.

Elon Musk

SpaceX’s path to Mars has so far been marked by fits and starts, but the next flight of Elon Musk’s big rocket prototype could be just days away. Airspace closures issued by the Federal Aviation Administration indicate the company is aiming to get the latest iteration of the Starship developmental craft off the ground on Sunday or Monday.

Of course, it won’t get anywhere near Mars, or even space. The first flight of SN5 is expected to be a 150-meter (492-foot) “hop.”
