2022 Fisker Ocean revealed further, US pricing announced

Fisker has already touted its innovative, flexible leases for the upcoming Ocean SUV, but now it's revealed how much it'll cost to buy one outright. In the US, that is, although an Australian launch has been promised. The nascent brand’s electric SUV will be priced from US$29,999 (A$43,268). That price includes the U.S. government’s $7500 (A$10,817) tax credit for battery-electric vehicles.

BMW i3 Urban Suite revealed

BMW has revealed the i3 Urban Suite ahead of its debut at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Although it shares its exterior and powertrain with the mould-breaking i3 electric vehicle, the Urban Suite subs its four-seat interior for a two-seat setup designed to evoke "the relaxed feel of a boutique hotel". The rear passenger sits in a large, business class seat with a footrest, a screen that flips down from the roof lining, and a 'personal sound zone'.
