There's some trunk footage in the first 20 seconds of this video:

It's not a ton of info, but you can watch Henrik climb out of the trunk. So you've got that going for you...

There's a little more info here (plus a still photo of the trunk area): Here's How The Fisker Ocean Electric SUV Compares With Its Rivals

The cargo space looks small if you go by the numbers in the link, but I think it will meet most of my needs (esp. since the Mrs. drives a Murano). I just need to be able to experience it in person to tell. Someday...

@radioactiveman,
The Fisker Ocean will NOT be known for its hatchback space.

Here's the empirical dimensions:
There's 20 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats with the parcel shelf in place, which seems a bit small to us.
With the shelf removed, luggage space goes up to 25 cubic feet, and with the rear seat folded, there's 45 cubic feet of cargo room.
That latter number is down significantly compared to what Tesla claims for the Model Y EV (66 cubic feet), as well as more conventional competitors like the BMW X1 (58.7).

@Jay has put up,a good video (2nd one)

Thx @Holt
for this beautiful reminder of the Fisker Ocean reveal!

Love the drawn out opening line, "Good morning Los Angeles"
by the Fisker presenter
Immediately thought of Robin Williams DJ opening line
from movie "Good Morning Vietnam!"

I believe you, but honestly - it seems a little strange to me. I mean what do you think, watching the photos the trunk looks quite OK, standard, mid-size. Comparable to let's say Audi Q5, BMW X3 or (what I own) Ford Kuga.

But the numbers stated do not say so. I did not see a Tesla Y trunk live but the form of the back already kept me away from diving into it. Can't offer that much space, so my first thought. But a third more? Nayyy... Neither should the X1, I mean that's a small cross-over, come on.

So where is the mistake?

I haven't seen one of these beauties in person, so I only know what we can see in photos & what reviewers tell us. Found this page from the UK that seems pretty excited about cargo space: Fisker Ocean Preview | Electrifying

Two quotes stick out:

1. "Inside, Fisker promises warehouse-like levels of space, and if our quick check of the cabin at the LA Show is anything to go by, that claim isn’t far off the reality."

2. "Rear legroom is huge while the boot can hold up to 566 litres of luggage - which is very impressive."

Doesn't make me want one any less!

@radioactiveman
Here's the breakdown of the vehicle trunk/boot space you mentioned
(in order from least space to most space)

Ford Kuga. Seats up:14.55 cu ft. Seats down: 54.2 cu. ft
Fisker Ocean: Seats up: 25.0 cu ft. Seats down: 45.0 cu ft
Audi Q5: Seats up: 25.85 cu ft Seats down: 54.10 cu ft
BMW X3: Seats up: 28.70 cu ft. Seats down: 62.70 cu ft
Tesla Y: Seats up: 30.20 cu ft. Seats down: 72.10 cu ft

Well, at least it has more space than the current Kuga. So let us pray that this will be enough argument for an upcoming family discussion...
Besides that: One thing I like about the Kuga is that you can slide the backseats for approximately 0.5 ft - either to have more legroom or trunk.
Would like to see such a practical feature also in the Ocean.

Maybe a dead topic by now, but there is a pretty good view of the cargo space (which seems adequate to me) towards the end of this short video from Vegas:

It's NEVER too late to add pertinent and visual information for our Fisker Fam!

Lucky Reservation couple got to sit inside.... looks very large
with LOTS of headroom
That open rear hatch reveals a cavernous & useful rear trunk
with box-like dimensions
Love the flat floor for easy loading of stuff such as road/mountain bikes!

I surmise that Henrik Fisker prioritized Interior passenger volume over
a larger rear trunk
