Apologies for the raw unedited nature of the pictures.
honestly was a bit disappointed with the interior of the prototype. “Felt” cheaper than I thought it would be.

Thank you for the pictures!!! They're great! I wonder if that's a production ready car or if it's one of the testers we've been seeing. It's interesting that it felt like the interior was cheap because it looks pretty premium. What would you compare it to?

Not entirely sure how I feel about the three stalks coming off the wheel. Reminds me of the old Mercedes-Benz's. First one looks like it's the wipers, second one looks to be the heated steering wheel and the last one looks to be cruise control.

Thanks for taking and posting pictures!

I've been thinking it for awhile, but is the back window very narrow vertically? Or does it only look that way because most rear windows are raked, so they are longer, even if the vertical space is small?

That's what I was thinking. There is no rear wiper so I was really interested to know what visibility is like in the rain out the back.

I also really hope those lit door handles make production. It's so cool.

This looks like the same one that was in Santa Barbara. I wouldn't take the prototype quality for the final production version.

Yes, that is definitely the same car from Santa Barbara and likely the car making the rounds. The giveaway is the painted buttons under the center screen (unless 62.5° is the only temperature available for the HVAC).

Yes, don't worry about prototype quality. Also, don't focus too much on minor details (such as the three stalks) as many of those can change before final production. Final production will likely not have a rear wiper as the rear window opens.

Yes, don't worry about prototype quality.
unfortunately, given that commitment to spend 70K to get the Ocean One is just around the corner, all we have got to decide is this prototype. Hopefully the final production model is better than the prototype, Or else I would certainly seriously reconsider buying Fisker.

THANKS for posting the Pictures!
1. If no wipers at back... pretty sad for an expensive Vehicle! Much cheaper hatchbacks have that now!
2. The last picture - front photo - does look like the side door mirrors when fully extended, looks like it is protected by the wide front flared body near the tires. So the WIDTH without mirrors look like same as WITH Mirrors. Can anyone confirm this? Maybe @fiskeroceanfan noticed this? - if so can you share?
3. Does the Vehicle look substantial in its stance, and well styled in its class (say, compared to a Porsche Macan?) Any opinions?

Thanks again!:)

The front console and dash area has a lot of hard plastics. I hope the final version has a more luxurious look to make the price, especially for the Extreme/One prices.

Beautiful pictures, but the seats look a bit cheap, at least in photos. I get that they're using unconventional materials, and that certainly wouldn't be a deal breaker, but I hope that they look a bit more upscale in production, at least in the One/Extreme versions.

The suede doesn't help. I think they should really go with faux leather for their demo cars. They also better offer faux leather as a choice when we order.

I agree. That’s what has me on the edge now as I was just about sold on the vehicle prior to yesterday. Now I am in serious doubt given the look / quality I saw yesterday.
it did not give a luxurious feeling from any stretch of imagination. Unfortunately

It was beyond the seats. Seats themselves were OK to feel and felt comfortable. Just the overall look was too “plasticy” and very much “duct taped” and unfinished. I have seen professional quality videos and they did look amazing. But real life …. It was but of a disappointment.

Are you all talking about suede on the seats? The Sea Salt and Maliblu seats are vegan leather AKA faux leather AKA polyurethane. For example in this photo of Sea Salt, the darker center of the seats is recycled fabric material. So not suede. The lighter surrounding areas are polyurethane. We haven't seen the black fabric or black polyurethane seats yet.

" Earth-friendly with ethically sourced and recycled materials throughout. The premium upholstery, carpets, and interior use recycled and renewed plastics. By using recycled materials wherever possible, Fisker lowers the carbon footprint of manufacturing the interior fabrics used within the Fisker Ocean.
...
The SUV uses up-cycled materials, including reclaimed fishing nets, old t-shirts, and renewed rubber. It uses 100% polycarbonate and polyurethane surfaces with 100% reinforced Rayon backing. The vegan interior meets stringent chemical emission limits for various VOCs such as formaldehyde."

1. Most EVs don't have wipers. Look at the Model Y, Mach-E, ID.4, Ioniq5, EV6, etc. It helps with aero.
2. Much discussion on width in other message threads. Camera lens distortion may make it look like that. The mirrors are wider than the body. Look at this:

3. Yes, I think the stance is very sporty and substantial. One of the best compact SUV designs I have seen. To me it has Ranger Rover/Mini vibes. However, the tapered top half of the car, does rob the interior/cargo area of space.

Thanks @MTN Ranger ... I was hoping for that wide stance, this diagram with dimensions shows 79" WIDE, WITHOUT MIRRORS! and including MIrrors, another foot - so 89" ... Is that Possible for a compact SUV?
]to compare: Porsche Macan Exterior Dimensions ; Length: 184.9 inches ; Width (with mirrors): 82.6 inches ; Width (with mirrors folded): 75.7 inches ; Height: 63.9 inches]

Range Rover look - yes!

Adaptive Cruise Control is standard, you think?

If Wiper is not common in EVs, isn't that a safety/visibility issue in bad weather?

OCEAN 79" width WITHOUT Mirrors (from that picture), will make it rather WIDE stance (cool!) ... and even wider with the Mirrors... even wider that Porsche Cayenne!!
Dimensions of the 2021 Porsche Cayenne: length of 194 inches, and it is 86.4 inches in width (mirrors not folded) and 65.9 inches in height. Along with that, the car has a wheelbase of 114 inches, which means more stability and comfort for you

Their will have rear view camera in the mirror and 360e view 2 or 3D depending of the model.
