Did anyone else notice on the latest photo's on the high volume production line at Magna Steyr it appears that the Fisker Ocean has a Frunk

@jon_parsons Even test ones at the event have it but it’s a unknown what is used for (secret for now) and may not be known by the customer, only for service.

@jevs Thanks, I hope they do have one as its a great place to store the charging lead, especially when the trunk is full and you need to charge.

HF stated earlier that there will be no frunk 😪 

IMO not including a frunk on a EV is a huge mistake. All that space and that little engine. You don't want to empty your entire trunk for finding that Type2 cable you need when parked at a charger. Tesla and Ford F150 are great examples.

@jon_parsons There is no frunk. The front of the vehicle will be filled with the motor, cooling system for the motor and HVAC system, etc. The front of the vehicle will only open for service. This has been confirmed for over a year now and not a question.

I thought Fisker Ocean has two engines except for Sport trim? I would think that needs more space under the hood?

@progressnc Right but they are not making a second setup for the Sport only. Henrik claims this is an effort to reduce costs. That would not reduce costs.

@orionpax I think you answered it yourself. It is a cost reduction if you have same setup for Sport and other trims. Same body design and no need to switch between settings for Sport and other trims. If the other trims don't have space to accommodate frunk? Sport has a single battery/engine vs two batteries/two engines. Having same line for manufacturing all trims will reduce the manufacturing costs and increase volume.

I did? Haha. My point is if they are making the Sport with a user opening frunk with cargo space, that would add parts, engineering, and a change to production. It would cost more. Why would Henrik say there is no frunk and then all of a sudden the least expensive version has one?

@orionpax I did not know Sport has Frunk. Then you are correct. There is no cost reduction in adding Frunk to Sport but not to higher trims. Feels strange too. If I pay nearly $30,000 more for a trim I expect it to have all the extras.

If the Sport is FWD, then wouldn't the motor be in the front? And correspondingly take up the same amount of space as the AWD One, Extreme, and Ultras where motors would be placed in front and rear?
I didn't expect that the Sport would have any extra space in under the hood (bonnet) than the other models...but, I wonder how long it will take for aftermarket suppliers to come up with a solution (like they did for automatic opening function on Tesla's 3/Y frunks).  My guess is that it'll happen once production numbers get to a certain point where there will be enough demand for frunk conversions.  I use my frunk often enough that I would miss it if I didn't have it anymore.  Currently it is home to my Tesla's overnight bedding, window blackout covers, pillows, and JetBoil campstove/coffee maker.  Not used often, but super handy every 4-6 weeks when out and about.

@fiskerdu Yes,the Sport is FWD so no additional space than the other models up front.  While unlikely, the Sport may have more space in the sub-trunk in the back (most likely all cars will have the same platform but there could be space as there is no rear motor).
