Set to commence production in 2025, Fisker Alaska boasts an impressive 547km range and is poised to shake up the electric truck market.
Fisker’s Foray into Electric Trucks: The Alaska
Fisker, the American automaker, has recently showcased their latest addition: the electric truck named “Alaska.” This model joins the lineup after Fisker’s earlier revelations, including the power-packed electric convertible, Ronin, with its impressive 1000 horsepower.
Alaska is designed to compete with electric truck stalwarts like the Ford F-150 Lightning, RAM 1500 REV, and the Tesla Cybertruck.
Distinct Design and Sustainability
With a rounded, fluid design, Alaska stands apart from its edgier competitors. Front-facing design elements include a prominent model name emblem, sleek LED headlights, secondary lights on the front bumper, and a protective under-guard. This robust appearance is enhanced with black flares and rooftop bars, as well as matching side skirts.
The rear design mirrors the front with brand lettering, slim tail lights, and a black-painted protective bar. The truck, built on the modified FM31 platform (adapted from the Ocean SUV), is championed by the CEO as the most lightweight and sustainable in its segment. Inside, the Alaska features vegan leather upholstery and wood-imitative decorative elements.
Not to be outdone technologically, the Alaska’s cabin sports a vertically-oriented massive central display for multimedia and an overhead mesh storage pocket.
Features and Specifications
A standout feature, the “Houdini trunk”, allows for the divider between the bed and cabin to electrically retract, extending usable bed length from 1.38m to a whopping 2.8m.
Battery options vary between a 75 kWh and a 113 kWh capacity. The former promises a range of around 370km, while the latter amps it up to a commendable 547km. While exact power details remain undisclosed, Fisker hints that the top-tier model can accelerate to 96km/h in just 3.9 seconds.
Production of the Fisker Alaska is set for 2025, with a starting price tag of $45,400. Its availability in Europe remains uncertain.
