Fisker Says its Electric Pickup will Have Exclusive Features, Teases the PEAR

Fisker teased the PEAR, talked about the upcoming Alaska pickup, and announced the results of EPA and WLTP tests for the Ocean

  • The company wants its truck to have features that have never been seen before on such a vehicle.

  • New renderings show more of the appearance of the upcoming PEAR EV.

  • Fisker also says that EPA and WLTP testing show that the Ocean could have more range than expected.

Fisker’s CEO had a lot to talk about during the start-up automaker’s recent earnings presentation.

Indeed, the executive revealed more details about three upcoming models including the Alaska pickup, the PEAR compact SUV and the already unveiled Ocean.

Starting with the Alaska, Fisker says it wants to be present in every market segment in order to sell 1 million vehicles per year eventually.

This is why the company hopes to get in on the growing popularity of electric pickups with this model which will be based on the Ocean SUV.

This means that it probably won’t be as rugged and capable as models such as the Ford F-150 Lightning or the upcoming Scout EVs from Volkswagen, but it should still generate interest on the market.

According to the executive, this lifestyle truck could be lighter and more efficient than any other electric pickup in the world.

Sharing a platform with the Ocean will also make it possible to bring the Alaksa to market much more rapidly than if the company had to develop an entirely new chassis just for this model.

Fisker also says that each new model will include at least four unique features. Talking about the Alaska, the CEO only said that these features will be “Amazing” and never seen before in the truck market.

At the same event, the company also unveiled new teaser images for the PEAR compact SUV which shows a strong resemblance to the Ocean, especially at the front.

The rear end is more distinctive with its rectangular taillamps that frame the entire rear window, and the side profile shows a unique window line.

Few details are known about this model at the moment except that it should start at $29,900 in the United States, the top variant is expected to have more than 300 miles (483 kilometres) of range, and the company currently has over 5,600 reservations.

In addition, Fisker says that homologation testing in the U.S and most of Europe is almost finished for the Ocean, which should start deliveries later this year.

Interestingly, these EPA and WLTP tests have revealed that the Ocean could have more range than the automaker had announced, with official figures reaching up to 579 kilometres instead of 563.

As of now, Fisker claims to have 56 prototypes on the road and reservations for 65,000 production versions.
