Fisker Releases More Details on EV Pickup Planned for US
LOS ANGELES – Fisker Inc. today released additional details on its Fisker Alaska, an all-electric pickup the company plans to manufacture in the United States.
“Alaska breaks with convention,” chairman and CEO Henrik Fisker said in a statement. “It doesn’t fit into any current segment, as it combines features of a midsize pickup with the capabilities of a full-size thanks to its innovative expandable bed design.”
Fisker revealed the Alaska at its Product Vision Day on Aug. 3.
Production of the Fisker Alaska is expected to start during the first quarter of 2025. No manufacturing site has yet been announced.
Currently, Fisker produces its Fisker Ocean SUV at a Magna facility in Grantz, Austria. The company has announced it wants to build its crossover, the Pear, at Foxconn’s Lordstown, Ohio, plant.
The Alaska features sporty handling and driving dynamics combined with luxury SUV comfort and everything that buyers in the booming pickup-truck market expect, the company said. Fisker also intends to make the Alaska the world’s most sustainable pickup when deliveries begin in 2025.
Among the more innovative features is the vehicle’s bed, Fisker said. The bed is designed to expand from 4.5 to 7.5 feet due to a Houdini partition behind the rear seats that can be electronically lowered into space created by the battery layout of the FM31 platform.
Fisker aims for the Alaska to be the world’s lightest electric pickup and feature extra storage in an insulated front trunk.
The Alaska will be offered with two battery packs that will offer a range between 230 and 340 miles, while it will be able to hit 0 to 60 miles per hour between 3.9 and 7.2 seconds.
