I agree with the ventilated seats.
There are 3 things I'd really like to have and is missing in the Ocean, and that's:
  • Ventilated seats (like Riptide mentioned)
  • HUD
  • Adaptive driving beam (Auto High Beam is really old tech)
These items should not be excluded in premium car like the Ocean Extreme. The ventilated seats and HUD you can get in a "cheap" electric vehicle like Hyundai Kona.
Magna already supply off-the-shelf adaptive driving beam tech that Fisker could easily include in the Ocean.

Boy I was really hoping for optional ventilated/Air conditioned seats. Once you own a car with this you never go back. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.
My previous two cars before the Tesla had ventilated seats, I do really miss them. For a while I was looking at aftermarket options to add ventilated seats. Thankfully, the preconditioning will cool down the seats but they don't stay nice and cool. The AC seats was the biggest selling point to the R1S.

Auto high beams is standard, all trims.

I'm thinking @Aecasorg is speaking of digital matrix LED lighting. This is where the headlights can also sense light so they dim in parts where they may be shining at another car, and other fun tricks. Or maybe you are referring to the headlights that turn with a car around a bend. Somewhere on this forum we had this discussion already and on twitter Henrik said his headlights were a surprise and would be "even better" than matrix LED. It's suggested they have planned for the NHTSA to drop the ban on these new headlight technologies that the EU allows. Audi uses some of this stuff. Google matrix LED or Audi laser headlights.
Edit: NHTSA did remove the ban on Matrix LED lights in North America this year. I forgot!
Edit add : here is one thread that has some links about Matrix LED

Correct @Bernie It is the matrix/digital headlight tech that basically is a full beam all the time but just dims out the space where there are vehicles infront of you, everything else is lit up surrounding. It is excellent for when driving in the country side where you have the risk of animals running on to the road. The Polestar 2 apparently has one of the best on the market (subjective). Audi and Mercedes are also fantastic in this space.

It's why I love this forum.
Never even heard of this tech and very excited H. Fisker said he has something better in store.
WOW!

For a car that they advertise as "luxury", how do they not even have ventilated seats?? The more details we get, the less I want to keep my rsvp.
Not all luxury vehicles have ventilated seats. Shoot, the $125,000 Mercedes EQS doesn't even come with them as standard. It's costly and at the moment, anything that is going to cost Fisker extra is a liability. They have to be able to keep their margins. Once they get to economies of scale, I don't see a reason why they wouldn't consider it though.

At 70K feel these three features should have been included:
1. HUD
2. Front Ventilated Seats
3. No separate HVAC zones for back seats (only dual zone)
The One/Extreme is basically the same price as the Model Y (cheaper if you take into account the Federal Credit) and the Y has none of those features, a "tiny" 15" center screen and no binnacle display. I am still confused about the Fisker "Limo Mode" - it says it has controls for the 2nd row passengers allowing to change temperature & fan speed. If it is dual zone; does the back row changing the temperature also change the temperature for one of the front zones? (There is definitely two zones in the front as you can see the controls underneath the center screen.)

I thought the same thing. A third zone for the back? Or just remote control for front. I see this back touch screen controls as a “Gee Wizz” mostly useless upgrade. An almost never used option. Unless you drive with 3-4 adults often. And kids in the back seat controlling the front seat display and temperature is not an option I would even consider.

That was my first thought as well - I hope there is a child lock on the display.

5:53 of bjorns ocean prototype review on YouTube shows a mockup of the rear control. It is built out of the rear seat cutout so it can be folded away if you don't want it toyed with. My guess is it will have the same or similar functions to the 2023 range rover sport which has the same feature (likely from magna as well). It also might mean a separate hvac venting system similar to the ionic 5 limited trim I believe which is the only model that has the air outtakes run through the b pillars and rear controls.

Thanks for the heads up. I was also able to get a good look at the Sea Salt Interior as that is what I ordered. Here is the link for Bjorn's video:
