Today, Fisker unveiled new details about its all-electric Alaska pickup truck. The company is challenging conventions and reshaping our perception of what electric vehicles can achieve. The latest testament to Fisker’s commitment to pushing boundaries is the highly anticipated Fisker Alaska super sport pickup truck. With a blend of cutting-edge features, sustainability, and versatility, the Fisker Alaska aims to redefine the pickup truck landscape. It will leave traditional contenders, like the popular full-size Ford F-150 and Toyota Tacoma mid-size pickup truck, in its eco-friendly dust.

Breaking Free from Conventional Segments

Henrik Fisker, the visionary behind the Fisker brand, declares, “Alaska breaks with convention. It doesn’t fit into any current segment, as it combines features of a mid-size pickup with the capabilities of a full-size thanks to its innovative expandable bed design.” Fisker’s bold declaration is a direct challenge to the status quo of pickup trucks. Henrik is setting the stage for a new era of versatility and practicality that transcends the limitations of conventional categorization.

Fisker Alaska to Challenge Pickup Truck Titans

In comparison, the Ford F-150 and Toyota Tacoma solidify their roles as dominant figures in the realm of pickup trucks. Each truck reigns supreme in its distinct segment of full and mid-size pickup trucks. The F-150 is renowned for its formidable prowess and immense appeal. It consistently embodies the quintessential full-size pickup truck, with Ford’s transformative F-150 Lightning continuing its legacy. Meanwhile, the Toyota Tacoma steadfastly maintains its position as a trustworthy and resilient mid-size alternative. This mid-sized Tacoma appeals to drivers seeking a balance between agility and utility. However, the Fisker Alaska, measuring 17.4 feet in length and featuring an expandable truck bed, will rival both of these competitors in size.

Sustainability and Innovation Takes Center Stage

While Ford and Toyota continue to make strides in their truck segments, Fisker’s dedication to sustainability and innovation sets the Alaska apart. As the world grapples with environmental concerns, Fisker is unwavering in its commitment to making Alaska the world’s most sustainable pickup truck. This commitment is evident not only in the vehicle’s zero-emission electric powertrain, but also in its groundbreaking expandable bed design.

Expandable Truck Bed Is a Game-Changer

The innovative bed design, which draws inspiration from the Houdini rear door technology, is a testament to Fisker’s ingenuity. The Fisker Alaska truck bed can seamlessly stretch from 4.5 feet to an astounding 9.2 feet with the powered liftgate dropped and rear seats lowered. When the rear seats are folded down and the Houdini is lowered, the rear seats are protected by fold up panels including a panel folding up behind the front seats.

This surpasses the truck bed capabilities of both the F-150 and Tacoma, each offering conventional bed sizes. Alaska’s unparalleled versatility opens up new possibilities for hauling various loads. Whether it’s home improvement materials, recreational equipment, or work supplies, the use cases are endless. The Fisker Alaska raises the bar by accommodating a wide range of cargo with ease. Moreover, this electric pickup truck could potentially emerge as the best selling work companion in the United States.

Performance and Power, Fused with Luxury

In terms of performance, the Fisker Alaska is not to be underestimated. With two battery pack options, 75 kWh and 113 kWh, Alaska will offer ranges of 230 to 340 miles. This means that Fisker Alaska bridges the gap between short commutes and long-distance travel, addressing one of the primary concerns for electric vehicle adoption. The estimated acceleration times of 0 to 60 MPH range from 3.9 to 7.2 seconds. This positions the Alaska as a contender in both speed and efficiency.

As we saw at Fisker’s Product Vision Day, its allure will captivate owners with a colossal Big Gulp cupholder, a designated holder for cowboy hats, specialized cockpit compartments for stowing work gloves, an expansive center armrest with storage compartments for flashlights and pens, alongside a passenger tray equipped with a tablet holder. The world’s lightest electric pickup will also boast added storage within an insulated front trunk and wheel sizes ranging from 20 to 22 inches.

Eco-Friendly Since Day-1

In comparison, both the F-150 and Tacoma provide an array of powertrain options, encompassing conventional internal combustion engines that exhibit differing degrees of fuel efficiency. Presently, Ford has brought forth the F-150 Lightning into production, while Toyota is gearing up for the debut of an electric variant for its renowned truck model in 2025. Nevertheless, these well-established automakers continue to serve a varied consumer base. In stark contrast, Fisker’s Alaska boasts a fully electric powertrain and sustainable interior. This underscores the company’s unwavering dedication to an eco-friendly and sustainable future right from the outset.

Made In The USA

The Fisker Alaska will proudly bear the label “Made in the USA.” The super sport truck will contribute to the nation’s growing electric vehicle industry, supporting local manufacturing and job creation. This commitment to domestic production sets Fisker apart from its competitors. It provides an opportunity for consumers to support sustainable practices closer to home. The Fisker Alaska’s focus on sustainability and its cutting-edge bed design further solidify its unique identity within the realm of American-made pickup trucks.

Blazing Your Own Trail

Fisker says the Alaska is its “everything” vehicle with sporty handling and driving dynamics combined with luxury SUV comfort. It has everything that astute buyers in the booming pickup-truck market expect. This EV truck is expected to start at $45,400, before factoring in applicable incentives. The Alaska pickup truck is poised to revolutionize the traditional notion of a pickup. It will leave conventional competitors in the rearview mirror as it ventures into uncharted territory of the last frontier. Fisker has recently opened reservations, extending an invitation to enthusiasts who aspire to pioneer automotive innovation. These trailblazers will be among the first to experience the groundbreaking Fisker Alaska pickup truck, slated for an early 2025 debut.

  1. Pickups are such popular vehicles, at least in America. The Alaska design needs to be matched by its durability. If so, Fisker has a chance to establish a real emotional connection. While it’s nice to see the Alaska in what looks like the hills of coastal California, my hope is that they would lean very heavily on its namesake, with imagery of how this pickup can work & play in the rugged, raw, wild, natural beauty of Alaska.

  2. at 17.4 FT long that’s a foot longer than my Hyundai Santa Cruz and only about 9 inches shorter than the rivian which I found to be a bit clumsy. I really like the Santa Cruz handling so hoping the Alaska will be closer to that and not the rivian

  3. If this is made in the United States, I am guessing it will be built by Foxconn that is scheduled to also build PEAR.

  4. Evan. Sean. Hmmm. I find it more than a little bit difficult to trust Foxconn to produce the high-quality, well-built, durable, reliable, emotional and sustainable cars we are all demanding from all of the Fisker models.
