Fisker Ocean Launch Control: What Happens After 500 Uses?

Fisker denies strain on individual components.

The Fisker Ocean is equipped with a ‘Boost mode’ launch control feature, which is limited to a maximum of 500 launches throughout the car’s lifespan.

In the video shown below, it is evident that the launch control performance function can only be utilized up to 500 times during the car’s lifespan. The Ocean keeps track of this count to inform users of the remaining number of launches available. Initially, we speculated that this limit was imposed in order to prolong the longevity of the components. However, in order to verify our assumptions, we reached out to the automaker for further clarification.

According to a spokesperson from the company, the powertrain underwent testing with the assumption of 500 Boost mode uses throughout its lifetime and passed with flying colors. This specific number of activations was not determined by any restrictions on a particular component. The decision to set the limit at 500 was a conservative one, in comparison to other boost modes that have been benchmarked.

This is the Worst Car I've Ever Reviewed

“We anticipate that the powertrain would probably meet the requirements for Boot Mode usage,” stated the spokesperson. “However, we have not yet conducted a complete durability test with over 500 boost modes included.” Launch control is a common feature in high-performance electric vehicles such as the Hyundai Ioniq 5 N and Tesla Model S Plaid, but it is not always clear what the usage limitations are.

What occurs when a proprietor utilizes the full quota of 500 launches in Boost mode (which grants an extra 94 horsepower/30 lb-ft of torque)?

According to a spokesperson from the company, “We have not yet defined this, but we are exploring ways to make more activations possible, following further testing.” This statement suggests that the current limit on activations may only be temporary. The spokesperson expressed hope that any additional capabilities will not come with an added cost, as numerous automakers, including Tesla, are considering the subscription model.

In one perspective, it is possible that Fisker may only deem it worthwhile to release extra launches through an over-the-air update once they observe a higher usage rate than expected. However, it can also be argued that numerous customers may hesitate to utilize the Boost Mode function altogether if they sense their actions are depleting the car’s potential for future use. While electric cars are not renowned for their resell value, it is uncertain whether the remaining number of launches would not play a role in the second-hand market.

While the Ocean possesses swiftness, it cannot be compared to a sports car. Although 500 launches in Boost mode may satisfy the typical lifespan, it is not common to constantly be reminded of the remaining excitement every time one enjoys it.

  2. The things i have seen in terms of laptop or computer memory is there are requirements such as SDRAM, DDR and so forth, that must match up the specific features of the motherboard. If the pc’s motherboard is reasonably current while there are no computer OS issues, improving the storage space literally takes under a couple of hours. It’s among the list of easiest personal computer upgrade procedures one can consider. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
