Not sure if it is a bad sign that I received an invitation. My thoughts are that not many people want a 70k ocean when it was advertised as a sub-40k EV. It’s just a bit concerning that the One has not sold out.

Interesting, so they are finally into May? I don't think it's a serious issue. I think the majority are looking at the mid-level trims and/or want to see what the final product looks like. I'm a May reservation, have not received an invitation. So it will be interesting to hear if there are more May invites coming out.

well this is still true. just seems all the earlier ones have opted not to get the One, but a cheaper version
I was hoping to have other option pricing and actual, correct and current standard feature information for the other trims to be able to make an educated decision on whether or not to get the One/Extreme or wait for the Ultra. I've reserved the Blazer SS now..........so based on HUD, SuperCruise and many other standard features, including key fobs :ROFLMAO:, sorry, had to say it, I think it's gonna be my final purchase.

You just can't ask people but for so much. I hate passing on my sub #400 reservation position. They should have gotten more information out to the buyers. And not just board member testimonials.

I think you have put things in proper perspective

Henrik was humbled a bit by ocean one sales. They can keep the ONE order book open until November though as a last resort. They will sell out eventually, as more reservations are made and more details released.

In a year, we will all look back on this and laugh.
Why wait a year? Let's just laugh now. I mean, it's kind of funny that they thought they could get 5,000 people to order a car while holding necessary information back like it was the nuclear launch codes for the President.

I'm on the fence.

This is basically what my issue is. Trunk dimensions are not some state sekrut that has to stored in a lock box! Just give us some of the basics and let people get proper excited!

Just got my Ocean One invite today. Reserved 5/30/22 lol. If only I had 70k and the 5k to do it lol. Fisker is running out of Reservation Ques lol. I would probably be one of the people you might get it at end of year or Q1 next year as I live in California so will not have to go too far just shipped from Austria to California.

eh...........so what did you do?
I have until 8/1 (or sold out which ever comes first) to decide. Still deliberating - 5k non-refundable deposit and 69k total is more than my original Ultra budget. However, I live in SoCal (where EV's have ~%15 markup) and have a second Ultra reserved, so hopefully I can try the One then keep/resell it and cancel/wait for my second Ultra reservation.

I probably will be declining as that is too much vehicle cost for my puny budget lol. I will elect for the Ultra mostly and I will probably only get it via the Flexee Lease or go to a different brand umm maybe Vinfast lol , or hold off and see how GM will do the Blaxer and Equinox EVs ( already have reservation on the Blazer)

We're down to the One or the Rivian R1S. The pickups we have on reservation won't work for us as we want a spot for our dog. We also need minimum of 3500lbs towing, so the Blazer or Model Y won't do. Range is also really important and theoretically the One has the R1S beat by a little. My wife is leaning towards the Rivian, I'm leaning towards the One. More debate later this evening. :)

This is not shocking at all. I imagine many people put down the initial $250 but weren't totally committed/serious. When the ask became $5k it got serious. I think more importantly, no one knows what a Fisker is! No advertising, no marketing unless you are following them on social media. I have told dozens of people I ordered a Fisker Ocean. Every single person says " a what"?
