Interesting article on Ford Explorer EV getting delayed - but the reason has much broader implications
This is the part that is very interesting: "The European Union will make some additional assistance systems compulsory for all new cars starting in 2024. For newly homologated vehicles this obligation has already been applied since July 6, 2022, and from 2024 it will also be enforced for vehicles with older type approval."
I wonder how this will affect Fisker in future rollouts (including the homologation of the Ocean Sport).

If anybody else based in Europe, I woould say it should be hardly a surprise, but with Fisker one never knows 🤣
@mtn-ranger as the article states “For newly homologated vehicles this obligation has already been applied since July 6, 2022,” then the Ocean would have already been subject to the new regulations. HF had mentioned there were changes in the regulations that had delayed their initial homologation.

It's only about profitability. If Sport trim has or has not enough hardware to pass the hurdle (any needeed software will come from One).
