I'm seriously considering an Ultra when available, but it looks like heated seats, mirrors, and squirters (possibly also a heated landing area for the wipers) are only available on the Extreme. It also looks like pre-conditioning may only be available on the Extreme and One, as it isn't called out specifically on the Ultra. $20K seems a bit hefty for those items, but here in Upstate NY, they are really beneficial....more so than California mode. :) Any rumors of a cold weather package or "New York" mode for us poor souls not blessed with year-round sunshine?

The Ocean is high on my list now as well, as I think it’s a really striking design, inside and out. And the Ultra feature set is a pretty good list for the mid-price variant. But, living in Minnesota, seat warmers and heated mirrors are a must. And my max price is $60k so if I can’t get those features on the Ultra, then the Fisker won’t work for me.

Welcome to the forum!

@Rotaryracer I didn't notice that but I hope that's not the case. Pre-conditioning should be a feature available across the board and not just on the top trims. Especially when that's the case for other EVs.

@EvolOcean Which other vehicles are you considering along with the Ocean?

Thanks, glad to be here!

These are the ones I'm keeping an eye on (in no particular order)

Genesis GV60
Hyundai Ioniq 5
Polestar 2
Mustang Mach-E
Nissan Ariya
Audi Q4 e-tron

And now, of course, the Fisker Ocean 😁

There are 3 different levels of the sound system for the Sport, Ultra and Extreme trims (Ocean One is the same as Extreme)

Premium Sound (Sport):
Harmon 8 speaker system

Premium Sound+ (Ultra):
Harmon 12 speaker system

HyperSound (Extreme and Ocean One):
500w, 16 speaker system with 360 degree sound

Thanks, @EvolOcean. Do you know any specifics on the sound systems? Does '360 degree' mean surround sound, like support for multi-channel/5.1 audio? I have a collection of hi-res, surround sound audio flac files and it would be great to take them in the car, too. Definitely lower on the decision-making tree than other factors, but I'm curious...

I did a little homework on 'ELS Studio 3D', which is the audio system mentioned on the Fisker website section on HyperSound. From what I can tell, it will produce 5.1 surround sound. (Elliott Scheiner, master 5.1 mix engineer, is involved in the system and I guess ELS are his initials--it's the same system in high-end Acuras.) So, the question is then how to get the files to play? USB should make them accessible. Fingers crossed the included car audio will recognize and play them. Guess I'm going for the Ocean Extreme.
