While there are no new updates on the Fisker Alaska truck, Henrik and co. have got to be keeping a close eye on the competition that is mounting recently.

Here is a list of announced and in-production EV trucks:

  • Chevy Silverado EV
  • GMC Sierra EV
  • Toyota Tacoma EV
  • Dodge RAM EV
  • Rivian R1T
  • Ford F-150 Lightning
  • Tesla Cybertruck
  • Lordstown Endurance
  • GMC Hummer EV
  • Canoo Pickup Truck
  • Atlis XT
  • Hercules Alpha
  • Nissan Titan EV
  • Alpha Wolf/Wolf+/Superwolf

 

The big question I have is what could Henrik & Co. do differently than the others? How could the vehicle be just as unique and still fetch a reasonable price?

I have a sneaking suspicion that the Alaska will share underpinnings with the Endurance and will be built by Foxconn on the same line where it builds the Endurance truck and in the same factory where Fisker has already contracted for the PEAR. You can see Foxconn's strategy to focus Lordstown on fleet vehicles (which is its exclusive market anyway for now) and let Fisker run with the retail model. 

As for the competition...

Different Size Class:

  • Chevy Silverado EV
  • GMC Sierra EV
  • Dodge RAM EV
  • Ford F-150 Lightning
  • Tesla Cybertruck
  • GMC Hummer EV
  • Atlis XT => low survival probability

Others:

  • Rivian R1T => Premium competition
  • Toyota Tacoma EV =>not holding my breath. Toyota still cannot deliver a single competitive mass production EV. They are a long way from this.  
  • Lordstown Endurance => Fleet only
  • Canoo Pickup Truck => Not relevant competition
  • Hercules Alpha => pickup project abandoned in favor of marine drivetrain development
  • Nissan Titan EV => not real, based on Hercules Alpha platform near as I can tell
  • Alpha Wolf/Wolf+/Superwolf => I doubt this is ever doing anything, but I love the design...

So from my perspective, a meaningful mid-sized competition to Rivian is something that can find a home in the market, especially if it leverages the Endurance platform and the Foxconn relationship.

@bayoubob The Lordstown Endurance platform has wheel hub motors so would not want to see that for the Alaska.  Lordstown is working with Foxconn for additional vehicles using Foxconn's EV platform that Fisker could use but I imagine they would be better off using their existing Ocean (Magna) platform.

As far as competition, there are some in the rumor mills - VW Scout; Rivian R2T; Ford Maverick/Ranger EV.  What VW does with the Scout brand is the most interesting to me.

A visual reference for those that have never seen a rendering of the Fisker EV truck.

I would be interested in one.  As a home owner, I can see a lot of use for the bed in a truck.  If Fisker can get the Ocean delivery going smoothly and I am happy with my Ocean Ultra, I will definitely prefer the Alaska over the Pear.

I’m not a truck guy- or really even an SUV guy, but if they can make the Alaska perform like a sports crossover, a la the Ocean, I could be tempted.

if Fisker ever came out with a 4 door coupe that has a bit of an Audi S5 /BMW M-Series vibe to it and still gets well over 300 miles range, I would be very interested.

Will I get my Fisker One delivered before my VW needs its 100K service?? The race is on..
and…… will we still get the $7500 tax credit? Only HF knows…
