From an all cash purchase to software updates, we’re navigating the path to owning our Fisker Ocean.
Today, we are excited to announce that we have taken another step towards owning our Fisker Ocean. We have fully paid for the electric SUV, completing an all cash purchase through a wire transfer sent from our bank yesterday. The total purchase price for our vehicle, including all fees such as state sales tax, title and registration, destination and handling fee, and processing fee, amounted to $77,836. This unquestionably stands as the most expensive car we have ever bought. We have attached a copy of our purchase order and included an actual photo of our very own Fisker Ocean One above!
As many of you may know, our initial preference was to utilize Fisker Finance and explore the lending experience much like the trade-in process. However, unforeseen challenges with both the trade-in and Fisker Finance application process prevented us from experiencing either offering. For example, we’ve encountered unclickable buttons, 500 internal server errors, etc. We decided not to wait for the technical issues to be resolved and proceeded with a complete cash purchase. Otherwise, waiting to use either of these two Fisker services would have needlessly extended an already long purchase process.
Software Updates and Delivery Date
Currently, our vehicle is undergoing software updates for a variety of reasons and we are eagerly awaiting their completion. Once the updates are finished, we expect to receive a delivery date. The earliest possible delivery date we could receive is Thursday.
As of right now, we feel somewhat like pioneers as we navigate through challenges during the entire purchasing process. This way, future customers will hopefully have a better customer experience when they go through the same process.
Although communication has been good, the purchasing experience has been far from perfect. Fisker has a lot of work to do in order to improve the customer experience. We will share all the details of our experience once it’s finished. We are optimistic that we will receive our Fisker Ocean One by the end of the week. 🤞
Getting Ready for Our Fisker Ocean
We are preparing a few things for delivery to pass the time. Since we already have a Tesla Wall Connector installed, we have bought a Tesla to J1772 charger adapter pictured below. This is the easiest way to make use of what we have already own, not to mention the most affordable. In the future, we might install a Fisker Wallbox home EV charger for a smoother charging experience.
Additionally, we recently purchased trim-to-fit rubber floor mats and a cargo mat. Cleaning these floor mats is much easier compared to carpet floor mats. We hope that Fisker will offer rubber floor mats made from recycled materials like leftover rubber from Bridgestone tires. Until then, we consider these as the best alternative.
