We’ve selected our Fisker Ocean One final build configuration and you won’t believe all of the options we selected.
We couldn’t be any more excited about being able to lock in our Fisker Ocean One! We’ve been playing with the Fisker Ocean configurator a lot over the past week. If you’ve been following along since the beginning, you know our very original build was Great White exterior, Black Abyss interior, and 22″ F5 AirGlider wheels.
A couple months back, we changed the paint color of our Fisker Ocean One from Great White to Big Sur Blue. Fisker Ocean paint colors have always been difficult for us to select. Fisker makes it hard to select a paint color and here is why.
Fisker offers some beautiful color options and soon there will be even more to choose from. Currently, the company offers customers seven paint color options for the Fisker Ocean One. Then, in 2023 the company will release seven additional paint color options. Right now we can select from Great White, Night Drive, Horizon Gray, Silver Lining, Mariana, Big Sur Blue, and Blue Planet. To date, we’ve seen four paint colors in person — Blue Planet, Horizon Gray, Big Sur Blue, and Silver Lining.
When we saw the Fisker Ocean painted in Big Sur Blue at Fully Charged Live in San Diego and then again in Austin, Texas we just love the matte finish. We were all set on Big Sur Blue, but after going through old posts on Fiskerati Forums we remembered how much we also loved Great White. It is a safe color option to keep clean and maintain. In fact, the last four vehicles we’ve owned have been white. Aside from the matte finish looking pretty cool, the other reason we liked Big Sur Blue so much is because the premium price.
Great White Paint
Since premium upgrades are included in the Fisker Ocean One price, you would think to select the most expensive signature features instead of what comes standard. However, we were informed the expensive price paid for premium features today has a negligible impact on resale value five years from now. For example, we took to Kelley Blue Book and ran some scenarios on various vehicles from over the past five years. We learned premium paint didn’t increase resale value over the standard paint color.
At the end of the day, you have to select a build configuration you will be happy with even if those options come standard or at a premium cost. That said, we have selected Great White as our Fisker Ocean paint color option. Also, this gloss white paint is one of the colors that is easiest to keep clean. At least that has been our experience over the past 15 years.
Fisker describes the standard paint option as follows:
A crisp, clean white that highlights curves in powerful detail. Great white sharks are known to cruise coastal waters from Baja California to north of Eureka, keeping wintertime surfers checking between their feet for unwelcome visitors. These graceful, streamlined creatures glide up and down the California coastline; now it's your turn to do the same in a Great White Fisker Ocean.
Black Abyss Plus
Fisker offers three interior colors — MaliBlu, Sea Salt, and Black Abyss. Both the MaliBlu and Sea Salt interior are pretty. However, we’re going with a simple look that is easy to keep clean, which is Black Abyss Plus! This interior offers a vegan leather seat that we’ve actually sat in several times during our visit to Magna Steyr. This was the interior of the vehicle we test drove and it was super comfy. The seat is smooth and soft and will be easy to keep clean, which is important to us. It is also available on all Fisker Ocean trims whether an upgrade or standard option.
Here is how Fisker describes the Black Abyss Plus interior:
Black Abyss Plus blends supple FeelTek seats with knit EcoFabric surfacing, creating a sporty interior that surrounds with recycled, ethically sourced, and durable comfort. Subtle dark metallic accents on the dashboard and doors add a classic finish to the calm, clean, black-on-black look. Our luxurious FeelTek seating is designed to mimic leather's smoothness and breathability. How It's Made Matters: FeelTek is made of two layers, an under layer of 100% recycled plastic bottles and a durable and flexible surface coasting made from plant-derived products. The fabric is made using eco-friendly "greener chemistries" using recycled fibers instead of virgin fibers to lower the carbon footprint of fabric manufacturing.
22″ F3 SlipStream Wheels (Black)
Fisker offers six different wheels to choose from including one 20″ option and five 22″ options. Available wheels include the 20″ F7 AeroStealth, 22″ F5 AirGlider, 22″ F3 SlipStream, and 22″ F6 Vortex. The AirGlider and SlipStream wheels come in two color options. While we really like the F5 AirGlider, which happens to be Henrik Fisker’s wheel of choice, we changed our original selection. We’re going with the black 22″ F3 SlipStream wheels. The carbon fiber inserts have a really cool look. These wheels impress in person. They look stunning and will be easy to keep clean with the three large spokes in painted in black. These also happen to be Fisker’s signature wheel option. Maybe Fisker will even let customers purchase the silver covers at some point allowing us to swap the wheel design from time to time!?
This is what Fisker says about the SlipStream wheel option:
Slippery Smooth Style. Designed to slip through the air, three spokes pass through the center of 22" F3 SlipStreams in a powerful design, creating the impression of an even larger wheel. Visible carbon flakes in the center, with strong accents, give the finish a futeristic, structural look.
Our Final Build
At the end of the day, our final Fisker Ocean One build consists of a Great White exterior, Black Abyss Plus interior, and 22″ F3 SlipStream wheels in black. This was certainly a process for us with a lot of waffling to select the right options for our family. For us, this build will serve our family well and will be the easiest of options to keep clean, which was a theme among our selection process. Best of all, our family is happy with this build. Now, we need to wait for January 2nd to roll around. At that time our build will be locked, but this is our final configuration. You heard it here first! Then, we will wait for the next step in the process, which will be a delivery date and the assignment of a limited edition build number (e.g., X/5,000). Exciting times ahead. Stay tuned!
