Fisker Alaska, the World's Lightest Electric Pick-up Truck
The Fisker electric pick-up will be available for purchase in 2025 with a price set at £36,546 and offering a range of 230 to 340 miles.
At Fisker's inaugural 'Product Vision Day', the firm unveiled the Alaska electric pick-up, the Fisker Ronin super-saloon, the Pear hatchback, and their established Ocean SUV. This 2025 accessible model has been built on Fisker's FT31 platform, an expansion of the layout used by their Ocean. It is reportedly created to be both lightest and most environmentally friendly truck in existence.
The Fisker Alaska will be highly competitively priced, with the base model costing $45,400 (£36,546). This is about £15,000 cheaper than the Maxus in the UK. At the Product Vision Day, Henrik Fisker praised the vehicle's design: "This pick-up truck combines efficiency and usability with great driving dynamics. The roadholding and ride quality are excellent and it’s incredibly fun to drive. We wanted to reinvent how people think about pick-ups - something truly unique."
CEO Henrik Fisker introduced the Alaska, a model similar in size to the Ocean. He maintains that it will drive in a comparable way as well. While details on battery and powertrain options weren't provided, Fisker approximates its range will be somewhere between 230 and 340 miles.
The Fisker Alaska will boast a cargo bed with a size range between 1.37m and 2.80m, which can be extended further with the use of the 'Houdini' bed divider connecting the rear cabin. Inside, there will be wooden trim on the dashboard resembling fabric to the touch, as well as additional features such as a cowboy hat holder and California mode previously introduced on the Ocean. When it arrives in 2025, this electric pick-up will have few rivals in its segment; Ford F-150 Lightning and Rivian R1T are two key competitors while Maxus T90EV is currently the only one available in the UK.
