Howdy,
New member I have been following Fisker Ocean since December. I've been doing EV research for about a year. We NEED to stop driving an ICE. Soo with that in mind we test drove a Tesla Y and was underwhelmed. It was a LR AWD. Next came the Ioniq 5 RWD (we need long range as my wife drives 280 miles every Friday). I've also done research on The Aryia ,it's RWD with a reasonable range with FWD. but I'm truly rooting for Fisker Ocean Ultra trim, hoping that the winter package is reasonably priced and includes a heat pump and heated seats.It cheeks all the boxes LR AWD .We made our Ocean reservation on 12/28/21, and jumped on the PEAR the day reservations were accepted. "I want to believe"...For those who know you know for other's it's the X Files.

On your way to Bethany Beach, stop by Philly and say Hi. Or maybe I'll join you in BB.

Neighbors.What Ocean did you reserve ,or are you on the fence.
Not so much on the fence, but waiting for a road test or 2, and more importantly, safety scores. The more I hang out here, but more itchy my reserve finger is getting. I want the Extreme mainly because it'll have the fully functional digital radar. Probably in Blue Planet, although Big Sur Blue has my attention too, and Sea Salt interior for the contrast. My car has only a bit over 67,000 miles on it, so I can be patient.

Yes, after doing research in December on Fisker the man and the companies mission statement and the companies he has involved in building the Ocean we decided that we both felt good about the company and could afford to invest some. How about you?
I do! I was more enthusiastic than my investment councilor, but he eventually came around. He also bought me some Tesla some time ago. I think I had Lucid for a while, but not Rivian. I'm not totally sure about those. I keep hoping that by the time I'm ready to buy, my Fisker stock will be enough to pay for the Ocean.

@baydreamer @Heynowirv
This sounds like a fabulous plan!
Just did a google maps route and its 940 km (560 miles) and 9.5 hours drive! My wife and I are in!

I will bring my gravel bike and hopefully @Heynowirv got some nice routes....Or we'll just ride the coast!
