Henrik Fisker takes to social media speaking directly to reservation holders that received email invites to pre-order Fisker Ocean One.
Today, we wrote about why we pre-ordered the Fisker Ocean One. Not long after our post, Henrik Fisker took to social media. In a video post, Henrik speaks to those that received email invitations earlier this week to pre-order Fisker Ocean One.
“This week, we went out to our first reservation holders, to invite you to make a firm order for the Fisker Ocean One. It’s our limited edition Ocean. We’re only going to make 5,000. And by making this firm order we can now start preparing your specific vehicle with your color choices, your wheel choices, etc. Thank you for being part of history. And Thank you for being a part of making a cleaner future for all.”Henrik Fisker, Chariman & CEO of Fisker Inc.
According to the company, invitations will be extended to the next group of reservation holders three days from Tuesday. That means Fisker plans to send out the next wave of emails tomorrow. It makes us wonder, how many email invites have been sent out to date to pre-order Fisker Ocean One?
Fisker Ocean One Email Invites
On Friday of last week, the company officially kicked off pre-ordering of the Fisker Ocean One. Fisker sent out a small sample group of email invites to early reservation holders to pre-order the Fisker Ocean One.
However, Fisker did not give specifics on the quantity of email invites sent. We estimate 500 emails invites were distributed. This is based on the date of which people reserved their Fisker Ocean that received them.
Then on Tuesday, Fisker sent out a big wave of email invites to more early reservation holders to pre-order Fisker Ocean One. The company did not share how many email invites went out this week. All we know is that it was a large group of email invites. The company said it would sent out email invites sequentially starting with reservation holder #1. The size of this email batch is much harder to determine, but we want to try to figure it out with your help.
Fisker Ocean Reservation Queue
To start things off, we received our email invite on Tuesday. We reserved the Fisker Ocean on September 27, 2020. That would put our spot in the Fisker Ocean reservation queue around 7,200.
However, we are just a sample of one. And we know for a fact many people who reserved the Fisker Ocean after us received an email invitation to pre-order the Fisker Ocean One.
Last night, we did a live stream about Fisker Ocean One pre-ordering to give everyone an update from our perspective. During the broadcast, we asked people viewing if they received an email invitation. We asked them what date they reserved their Fisker Ocean and their location trying to find out who was the most recent reservation holder. We must have had 15 replies to this question.
One viewer in Florida said they received their email invite this week and reserved the Fisker Ocean in September 2021. Another viewer from Southern California received their email invite and reserved the Fisker Ocean in October 2021. And then, a viewer from Wilmington, NC topped everyone. She said she got the email invite this week and reserved her Fisker Ocean in November 2021. We’ve heard others in the Fiskerati Forums with similar dates so it checks out. That would put us around 20,000 in the reservation queue or thereabouts.
One thing to remember
There is a little wrinkle how many reservation holders may have been contacted to pre-order Fisker Ocean One. When we pre-ordered our Fisker Ocean One, the messaging in Step 1 required us to confirm our delivery address. The webpage read, “First, you’ll enter your delivery address to confirm an Ocean One is still available in your region.” The keywords there are still available in your region.
At some point, Fisker Ocean Ones will run out in specific regions whatever those may be. As a result, people will be skipped if Fisker runs out of Ocean Ones in a particular region. Then, Fisker will have to contact people who may have more recently reserved their Fisker Ocean or they will need to broaden their definition of region. Let us know your thoughts in the comments. Where do you think we are in the reservation queue at this point?
