American manufacturer Fisker has announced that its electric SUV, the Fisker Ocean, has achieved an official WLTP range of 288 miles in ‘Sport’ trim, exceeding its initial estimates. The Sport is the cheapest Fisker Ocean available with a starting price of £36,900, undercutting entry-level versions of key rivals such as the Tesla Model Y, Ford Mustang Mach-E, Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Skoda Enyaq, whilst also achieving a greater range figure.

Don’t worry if you’re not familiar with the Fisker Ocean – here’s a rundown of what you need to know. It’s an electric mid-size SUV with five seats, similar in size to the Mercedes EQC and BMW iX3, and is available to order in the UK now. There are three versions of the Ocean to choose from: The entry-level Sport, the Ultra, and the top-spec Extreme. We tested the latter earlier this year and were impressed by its high quality-interior, technology and whopping, 440 mile range.

Whilst the Sport can’t match the range or performance of the Extreme, opting for the cheaper model will save you £21,000 and still gets you plenty of standard kit, including 20-inch aero wheels, a digital driver’s display, 17.1-inch infotainment touchscreen, panoramic glass roof, powered tailgate, digital rear-view mirror and plenty of safety features. Its 80kWh battery sends power to a 271bhp electric motor driving the front wheels and can be topped up via a rapid charger.

That large battery and the Ocean’s aerodynamic body have helped it achieve the official WLTP-rated 288 miles of range, an impressive figure compared to similarly priced electric SUVs. The entry-level Tesla Model Y comes close, with an official range of 283 miles, but commands a vast £8,000 premium over the Fisker. Other alternatives include the Skoda Enyaq 60, which is closer in price at £38,980, but it can only manage a WLTP range of 249 miles.
