A few weeks after its revelation, the Fisker Alaska reveals some additional information about it. The electric pickup should notably hunt on the lands of the Tesla Cybertruck.
With more than a million cars sold last year and a confirmed world number 1 position in electric vehicles, Tesla is a hit and outperforms all its competitors. But the latter are determined not to let it go. This is particularly the case for Chinese brands such as Nio and BYD as well as the American firm Fisker.
A new pickup
The latter is preparing the arrival of its first model in Europe, the Ocean. Showing a generous autonomy, the latter is cheaper than the Tesla Model Y and it will be compatible with the battery exchange. However, its launch will finally be slightly postponed due to a software problem. But the manufacturer does not want to settle for a single car, of course.
At the beginning of August, the latter organized a major conference to announce its future models. In addition to the Pear and the Ronin, Fisker also unveiled its alaska, an electric pickup that will hunt on the lands of the Tesla Cybertruck, whose production has just started. So little information had been revealed, now we finally know a little more about him.
The American manufacturer has just published a new press release, detailing certain information previously kept secret. We now know that the electric utility will come in two different versions, with two battery packs displaying a capacity of 75 and 113 kWh. This should make it possible to display a range of between 230 and 340 miles, or 370 to 547 kilometers.
Data undoubtedly expressed according to the American EPA cycle, which is a little more severe than our European WLTP. But that’s not all, since we also learn that 0 to 100 km/h will be achieved from 3.9 to 7.2 seconds approximately. The manufacturer specifies that the pick-up is still in the process of homologation and that the figures could still evolve in the future.
A practical vehicle
For the moment, no information has been given regarding the power of the vehicle, as well as the time required for recharging. These should be communicated a little later, while the pick-up should not see the light of day for two years. As a reminder, the first mention of Alaska dates back to January 2021 but no information was given at that time.
Henrik Fisker was simply content to mention the presence of a solar roof, which we could also find on the Cybertruck. This was ultimately not confirmed, but we know that the vehicle will be features a Houdini trunk capable of elongation by lowering the rear wall. The length of the dumpster would increase from 1.38 to 2.80 meters.
In total, the utility would be 5.3 meters long and would offer plenty of on-board storage, including one of the largest cup holders on the market and a cowboy hat holder. The pick-up would also be shod with 20 and 22-inch wheels, to choose from. For the moment, the price of this rival of the Rivian R1T, Hummer EV and other Ford F-150 Lightning has not yet been announced.
Fisker announces that reservations are already open, subject to a deposit of 250 dollars. Deliveries should begin during the first quarter of 2025. The automaker is also working on an off-roader based on the Ocean which should arrive early next year.
