It’s time for another electric showdown, but this time we’re pitting the fan-favourite Tesla Model Y against the more unknown Fisker Ocean.
Can this brave new disruptor knock the EV king off his throne?
Over the past decade-ish, Tesla have established themselves as a firm favourite among EV connoisseurs. The Model S was launched in 2012 to great fanfare, but it was when the Tesla Model 3 was released in 2017 that Tesla really became the go-to brand for performance-led, but affordable, electric driving.
Tesla’s grip on electric leasing has held firm, with nearly no other brand managing to take the crown from the American brand’s electric head.
That is, until now.
Fisker also hails from across the pond, a firmly Californian brand with an interesting backstory and a mission to be the most sustainable EV brand.
Bold claims from a bold start-up.
But Fisker isn’t your run-of-the-mill start-up. In fact, this is not CEO Henrik Fisker’s first go at a car company, and he’s taken everything he’s learnt and poured it into this new brand.
And Fisker’s first car, the Fisker Ocean, is really something quite special.
But if you’re after your next car lease, should you hold out for the UK launch of the Ocean, or go with the very good and well-established Tesla? We’ve put the two cars head-to-head in a bid to help you make that tricky decision.
