"Danish" electric car is falling apart, say the first owners

There is a whole ocean of problems with the new Fisker Ocean. Now the car collapses between the hands of the owners, writes the media.

When Fisker finally succeeded in getting the Ocean model off the assembly line and onto the roads, it caused quite a stir in the automotive world, to say the least.

After several delays, the car is actually on the roads now. But it all happened perhaps more than once too soon.

Because just as we here at Boosted have spoken to a Fisker owner about the car's problems, several Fisker owners are now complaining about a car that 'falls apart'.

That's what TechCrunch writes.

To the media, Fisker owners tell about everything from remote-controlled ones that go on strike, to seat sensors with holes in them and brakes without effect.

"Since Fisker launched the car, Ocean owners have complained more than 100 times about cars lacking traction," internal documents show.

"To TechCrunch, the company informs (Fisker, ed.) that these problems are rare. And that they have lost 'almost all problems' with software updates", writes the media.

However, software-related problems are not the only thing that Fisker owners complain about. Internal documents also show that Fisker has received complaints about helmets flying up under traffic and remote controls locking owners out of the cars. Or prevents the owners from getting out.
