Optional Package Transferability

Does anyone know whether Packages are transferred to a new owner when the prior owner purchases it for the vehicle? For example, if I buy the winter package and later sell the car, does the new owner have to repurchase the winter package or will it be permanently unlocked for any subsequent owners? I'm hoping the answer is yes, otherwise it will impact resale value.

If you buy it, it's yours. 

If you lease it, when you return the lease they reset the car and the new leasee can rebuy the package or lease the feature.

That is Henrik's business model. He said he'd be able to triple the costs, sorry revenue for each upgrade between leasee's. 

May explain why the upgrades on the Ultra is so expensive and also explain why the Ultra, whilst great value for money, is imbalanced. To balance it, you'll need to add features and some features that make sense to be together are split between optional packages. If those are on a subscription basis then whilst overall may seem expensive, on a day to day basis will seem cheap.

When you say it's mine, does that also mean that it will get transferred to a buyer when I sell (meaning that I also have the right to sell the package along with the vehicle)? That's the unclear part to me.

@wfernandez My guess is that it will be similar to what Tesla does.  If you buy an option and you sell the car via private party or to third party dealer (not Fisker), then the option will stay with the car.  If the car goes back to Fisker, then they can deactivate the option and have the new buyer by again.

I don't have an issue with what Tesla does - once they buy the car back, it's their car and they can do what they want with it; removing an OTA upgrade is no different than if they replaced the stereo or the wheels.  The issues where Tesla did get in trouble was that they had a history of deactivating options when transferring the car to a new buyer (for a sale done outside of Tesla) or when they bought a car back, removed the options and then wholesaling to a third party without properly documenting the options were removed.

@ttrinchi thanks, makes sense. Hoping that’s the case with Fisker too.
