Fisker Alaska electric pick-up renamed for European market


It will be sold with a choice of 20in and 22in wheels and features a cargo bed measuring 1.37m at its smallest size. Drivers can choose to extend the cargo bed to 2.28m and again to 2.80m. A so-called Houdini divider will also feature to connect the cargo bed and rear cabin. 

Inside, the Kayak has wooden trim on the dashboard, which has been treated to feel like fabric. The back seats include a cowboy hat holder and the car has a California window-dropping mode, as on the Ocean. 

Fisker also claimed the Kayak features the world’s largest cupholder, plus storage for work gloves, flashlights and pens, with a tablet holder and a large central armrest.

The Kayak will be entering a segment with few rivals when it arrives in 2025. The key competition will include the Ford F-150 Lightning, Rivian R1T and Tesla Cybertruck.

Like the Ocean, the Kayak should significantly undercut several of its rivals.

Speaking at the Product Vision Day, Henrik Fisker said: “We wanted to have a pick-up that had both the pick-up truck efficiency and usability but also one that’s a great driver’s car: great road-holding, great ride and fun to drive.

“It’s going to be really dynamic and very responsive, with the convenience of a pick-up truck. We thought ‘let’s do something really unique’.”
