The Fisker Alaska electric pickup truck is anticipated to make its debut before the close of 2024, featuring the Ocean’s technology to achieve a range of over 480km. Unveiled at the brand’s Product Vision Day, the Fisker Alaska has ignited excitement in CEO Henrik Fisker.
Just over a week prior, Fisker had exclusively confirmed to partner Auto Express that the company had plans for a pickup truck, comparing it to what a pickup from Ferrari might be like.
Now, the Fisker Alaska has been revealed, with an expected release date in early 2025, although Henrik Fisker aims for it to be available in time for Christmas 2024 to personally retrieve his Christmas tree.
A standout feature of the relatively compact Alaska is its versatile Houdini trunk, which allows the rear bulkhead to retract, enabling the truck to accommodate longer loads. The back seats in the double cab can also be folded down, extending the Alaska’s bed from four-and-a-half feet to seven-and-a-half feet. When the tailgate is lowered, the Alaska becomes capable of carrying loads nearly ten feet in length.
Built upon a lengthened version of the Ocean’s platform, the Alaska benefits from a swift development timeline. While battery details are yet to be confirmed, it is expected that the Alaska will employ the Ocean’s larger 113kWh battery, providing an estimated range of over 480km.
Sustainability remains a focal point in the design and construction of the Alaska, although it is unlikely to be manufactured in the same carbon net-zero facility in Austria as the Ocean. Fisker has confirmed the pickup will be produced in the United States to qualify for incentives.
Leveraging US incentives, the projected price of $45,500 (AUD$69,000) could be reduced to $37,900, making it notably more affordable than rivals such as the Rivian R1T and Tesla Cybertruck. Furthermore, the Alaska boasts a lighter weight compared to other electric pickup trucks, enhancing its performance and efficiency.
The Fisker Alaska comes with distinct features, including a cowboy hat holder in the rear and the world’s largest cupholder in the front, designed to accommodate a ‘big gulp’ cup.
Fisker is actively seeking a US partner for manufacturing, potentially considering Foxconn, the Apple iPhone manufacturer, which has already committed to producing the new Fisker Pear SUV.
While a decision on the availability of the Alaska in the UK is pending, Fisker has expressed interest, citing the popularity of lifestyle-oriented pickups like the Ford Ranger.
