Fisker introduces lifetime limitation in electric cars

It's just a software question. Nevertheless, it is Fisker who decides how many times launch control can be used.

Last year, Fisker Inc., headed by Danish Henrik Fisker, succeeded in building the brand's 10,000th car.

However, it is far below the target. A target that has actually been downgraded several times. But Fisker's first model, Ocean, is here – and with a lot of quirks.

Among other things, a spoj's restriction. However, it is neither top speed nor the number of owners that Fisker thinks they should decide on.

No, it is about the number of times the same owners can use the launch control function. The car, like so many other electric cars on the road today, can take off flying.

But just in Fisker's case, the function is extremely limited. In fact, Fisker has programmed it to only work 500 times over the entire life of the car.

Among others, YouTuber Marques Brownlee, who is followed by more than 19 million people, tells about this in his test of Fisker Ocean. A car he otherwise calls the "worst he has ever tested".

At Fisker, they apologize that Ocean has not been tested with a load of more than 500 uses of launch control. And that it is therefore a 'conservative estimate' of what the car can withstand.

Carscoops writes that.

In recent days, Fisker Inc. otherwise had everything else to worry about. Most recently, it has emerged that the company's stock is now so bad that the brand risks going off the market.

And shortly before that, it emerged that the US traffic safety authorities will now have 4,000 copies of Ocean investigated for a critical error. Read more about it here .
