Fisker to provide Danish ride-hailing company Viggo with 300 Ocean electric cars
American electric car maker signs their biggest order to date
Fisker, an electric car designer and manufacturer, has signed a deal for 300 vehicles with Viggo, the technology-driven Danish ride-hailing service. Viggo, which was founded in 2019, is aiming to challenge the standards for urban transportation through advanced data-driven innovation, zero-emission cars and Scandinavian simplicity.
Viggo has built a network of more than 55 electric cars and delivered more than 100,000 rides, and are looking to have 100 electric cars in their fleet by the end of the year. The company will expand into Norway in 2021 and the 300 Fisker Ocean all-electric luxury sports utility vehicles (SUVs) are expected to be delivered in the fourth quarter of 2022, and will be a strong part of their Scandinavian expansion. Viggo’s focus is on business users and has brought many large multinational companies into its customer user base.
Henrik Fisker, chairman and CEO of Fisker, said: “We created the Fisker Ocean with space, range and value as product priorities, attributes that are also very important to Viggo, their drivers and customers.
“As someone born and raised in Denmark, I am also personally proud that this Danish company has chosen to work with Fisker and put their confidence in our company and products. This agreement is the first of many multi-vehicle orders that we are planning to sign with both mobility companies like Viggo and large corporate fleets.”
On behalf of Viggo, CEO Kenneth Herschel and Chairman Peter Bardenfleth-Hansen, said: “We founded Viggo to create a better and more sustainable experience all around for our customers, and so our choice of vehicle is a critically important part of that service delivery. The seating and flexible space of the Fisker Ocean, together with the projected cost of operation, makes this vehicle a very logical choice for our fleet.”
