Fisker Provides Details on New Alaska Pickup Truck

The Alaska offers sporty handling and driving dynamics combined with luxury-SUV comfort options.

Fisker recently released new details on its Fisker Alaska pickup truck.

The company said the Alaska is its “everything” vehicle, offering sporty handling and driving dynamics combined with luxury-SUV comfort options such as cockpit storage, a large center armrest and wheels available in 20- and 22-inch sizes.

The company also is changing the vehicle design itself, starting with the bed, which is designed to expand from 4.5 to 7.5 feet thanks to a Houdini partition behind the rear seats that can be electronically lowered into space. With the powered liftgate dropped and rear seats lowered, the bed expands to 9.2 feet.

Beyond that, Fisker said it strives for the Fisker Alaska to be a light electric pickup and feature extra storage in an insulated front trunk.

“It doesn’t fit into any current segment, as it combines features of a midsize pickup with the capabilities of a full-size thanks to its innovative expandable bed design,” Chairman and CEO of Fisker Henrik Fisker said.

The Fisker Alaska will be offered with two battery packs – 75 kWh and 113 kWh – that offer a range of 230 to 340 miles. Production of the Fisker Alaska is expected to start in Q1 of 2025.

Measuring 17.4 feet in length, the vehicle will include features such as a big-gulp cupholder; cowboy-hat holder; cockpit storage for work gloves; a large center armrest with storage; and a passenger tray with a tablet holder.
