I joined the club last night and reserved my Ocean. Current 2018 Tesla Model 3 owner. Was a pre-order much like the Ocean. Over 230,000km on the car and really love it. Looking for more of an SUV, family vehicle and the Y is not for me. I have reservations on the Cybertruck, F150 and Silverado, but after spending some time researching the Ocean, I really think it fits what I'm looking for. Just a bit nervous considering a jump to a non-traditional manufacturer. I've always been an early adopter and I have been burned as much as I have enjoyed the new tech/product. I'm hoping this will be a hit for Fisker and the rest of us.

Welcome! I think a lot of us are in that some spot. Really like what I have read and seen about the Ocean. I am anxious to see what the auto journalists have to say once they are able to start testing. There are a few that I really trust and hope get the chance to review. But until then, gong to read as much as I can.

Welcome to the group. I'm actually excited to be buying from a non-traditional manufacturer. I feel like I'm part of something instead of buying a me too vehicle. And Henrik is an outside of the box thinker, so that really appeals to me also. I reserved early last month, so hopefully I'll have an Ocean sitting in my driveway this time next year (Blue Planet, just to break up the sea of black/white/gray on my street; 7 of them are white, and it's a small block).

Welcome, from down by the lake in Toronto. I'm also nervous and excited about buying from a non-traditional manufacturer. Really just hoping not to get burned by hardware or software screw ups. But really excited to have something different.

I've also got a reservation for a Cybertruck, and I'll put one down on an EV9 when it opens. Would love a Rivian T or S, but they're a bit out of my price range.

Would you mind sharing the ones that you trust?

I haven't checked out the EV9 yet. Also would love a Rivian, but a little too expensive and I'm concerned about their long-term existence (even though I am a small shareholder).

I try to watch as much from Kyle Connor at Out of Spec Motoring and Out of Spec Reviews. In addition to this, I like to watch the content on InsideEVs. And I have started watching Miss GoElectric. All three of these are US based. I have read somewhere that it is believed the journalists will be invited to Austria to review the Ocean, if so, I hope they are invited and go.

If not, there are a couple of European sights that I watch. First one is Bjorn Nyland. He attended the European introduction in Barcelona and actually interviewed Henrik, so I would bet he would attend any journalist event in Austria.

These are just a few I like to watch. Lots of others.

Thanks! I'm up in Barrie. TM3 has been a godsend for the commute into the city with the high fuel prices. Hoping to keep the TM3 and replace my older Dodge Journey. Using that now for short hops and trips with the dog.
