Fisker electric truck teased in family photograph [Update]

  • Fisker's Tesla Cybertruck rival to have a normal shape like the Rivian R1T
  • Could be a combination of a workhorse and adventure vehicle, but not Hummer-like extreme
  • Will likely be made in the U.S., possibly in Lordstown, Ohio
  • Might not be launched before 2025

Update: ‘Design’ and ‘Release Date’ sections updated and ‘TopElectricSUV says’ section added.

In May 2022, Fisker released a teaser offering a glimpse of a new electric truck alongside future models like the Fisker Ronin and Fisker PEAR. It is likely the updated Fisker Alaska that is developed for the lifestyle segment.

Design

In the teaser, the Fisker electric truck has forward-slanted C-pillars, sport bars, and full-width tail lights. The first teaser of the Fisker Alaska was a tweet from Henrik Fisker, the company’s Chairman and CEO, and he took it down soon after posting it in February 2020. Nevertheless, it was a conversation starter about Fisker’s product strategy. A few changes to the original design were revealed in another image shared in December 2020.

The second teaser revealed that the upcoming electric pickup truck’s rear-end had changed since the first teaser was momentarily released by the CEO in February 2020. This picture showed the Fisker Alaska featuring wraparound tail lamps that extend onto the pickup truck’s sides in contrast to the inverted ‘L’ shape of the original teaser. Over the tailgate and above the marker lights, the edge of the cargo bed appears slimmer. Lastly, a wide cut-out seemed to have been made on the back glass. A full-width third brake light was also revealed in the second teaser.

In January 2021, the CEO shared another design of the Fisker electric truck via his Linkedin profile, which looked different from the previous teasers. Also, this one didn’t say Alaska on the body or tailgate.

The design in the third teaser looked sportier, but the upright tailgate and the meaner-looking tail lamps of the second teaser were more attractive. Moreover, Fisker said that the final design will be way more radical, suggesting a deviation towards a more unconventional look.

On December 31, 2022, Fisker again released a new teaser of the Fisker electric truck only to take it down later. The fifth teaser is a picture that gives an overhead view of the future model, revealing its cargo bed and sport bar. Fiskerati published that image in a report on January 2, 2023, giving people who missed seeing it in Fisker’s posts a second chance. Perhaps, the new teaser previews the final design? Let’s wait and see!

Specifications

The Fisker electric truck should be based on the same platform as the Fisker Ocean compact SUV and sport similar hardware and interior. However, unlike in the SUV, a rear-wheel drive option may not be offered, making it an AWD model by default. The battery pack capacity should be more than 100 kWh and the EPA-estimated range well over 300 miles.

Release date

The Fisker electric truck could be manufactured alongside the Fisker Pear by Foxconn in Lordstown (Ohio), USA. According to the Fiskerati report, Fisker shared the fifth teaser with the hashtag “#2023Goals, indicating a 2023 reveal. So, Fisker may reveal a concept version in the second half of 2023. We don’t expect the electric truck to go on sale before 2025.

TopElectricSUV says

The Fisker Electric Truck could be a relatively conventional alternative to the radical Tesla Cybertruck, featuring a futuristic design in a normal shape and a similar low-profile interior. It might not be extreme like the GMC Hummer EV or the Rivian R1T, in order to be cheaper and more practical (higher range), which would make it suitable for a wider band of customers.
