Fisker, a California-based EV startup, is planning to launch its second model, the Alaska, in 2025. The Alaska is a four-door pickup truck that will compete with other electric trucks such as the Ford F-150 Lightning and the Rivian R1T. But what makes the Alaska different from its rivals? Here are some key features and facts about the Fisker Alaska that you should know.
The Fisker Alaska is based on the same platform as the Fisker Ocean, a compact SUV that will debut in 2023. The Alaska will have a similar front fascia and interior as the Ocean, but with a longer body and a truck bed at the rear. The Alaska will also have a unique feature called the Houdini partition, which allows the rear window to fold down and create a pass-through between the bed and the cabin for longer cargo.
The Alaska will offer both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive variants, with either single or dual electric motors. The base model will have a 275-horsepower motor, while the top model will have a 564-horsepower motor. Fisker claims that the Alaska will be able to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in as little as 3.9 seconds.
The Fisker Alaska will have two battery pack options: a smaller one that provides at least 230 miles of range, and a larger one that provides up to 340 miles of range. The battery packs will use lithium-ion cells from CATL, a Chinese battery supplier. Fisker says that the Alaska will support fast charging up to 150 kW, which means it can recharge from 10% to 80% in about 30 minutes.
The Fisker Alaska will start at $45,400 before any federal or state incentives. This makes it cheaper than most of its competitors, such as the Tesla Cybertruck ($49,900) and the GMC Hummer EV ($79,995). Fisker also offers a flexible lease option called Flexee, which allows customers to pay a monthly fee and return the vehicle anytime without any penalties.
Fisker plans to start production of the Alaska in December 2024, and deliver the first units in early 2025. The company has partnered with Magna International, a Canadian auto supplier, to manufacture the Alaska at its plant in Graz, Austria. Fisker also aims to sell the Alaska globally, including in Europe and China.
The Fisker Alaska is an ambitious project that aims to challenge the established players in the electric pickup truck market. With its attractive design, impressive performance, long range, and affordable price, the Alaska could be a game-changer for Fisker and the EV industry.
