New Fisker Ocean can be scrapped – impossible to insure

Fisker Inc.'s fate now hangs in such a thin thread that the cars can be scrapped with even minor damage. At the same time, insurance companies refuse to take out comprehensive insurance policies.

Fisker Inc. have long lived in uncertainty. And it was only made worse by the fact that in mid-June the brand sought bankruptcy protection in the United States.

Now the cars are worth so little that even with minor damage they are declared a total loss. Boosted has previously told how a Fisker Ocean owner was paid compensation for a car with a dent in the door. Read more about it here .

In both Sweden and Norway, the insurance companies are now so afraid of the car brand's fate that they no longer dare to offer the owners comprehensive insurance. This is due, among other things, to the lack of spare parts, say the companies.

– Fisker's cars are now sold on the Norwegian market with a warning to car buyers that it will probably not be possible to get hold of spare parts.

The consequence is that even minor damage can be very expensive if there are no spare parts, says Ellen Paulsen, head of communications at IF in Norway, to Motor.

This week it has emerged that Fisker has sold well in the stock of cars from last year. One and the same buyer has been given more than 3,200 cars as gifts.

In bankruptcy court, Fisker Inc.'s attorney said before the deal with the buyer was confirmed that the auto brand is ready to close once all assets are sold off. Creditors are left and fight over claims of a staggering DKK 8.6 billion. Read more about it here .
