New Fisker Electric Pickup Will Rival The Rivian R1T

Teaser / Comments

Fisker will have as many as four EVs in its lineup by the middle of the decade.

At the start of 2020, Fisker lifted the wraps off its first electric vehicle: the Ocean. Significantly, this is Fisker's first new model since founder Henrik Fisher's previous company, Fisker Automotive, which produced the ill-fated Fisker Karma, was taken over by Chinese auto parts builder Wanxiang Group. With its affordable $37,499 asking price undercutting the Tesla Model Y and Model 3, the Fisker Ocean has the potential to shake up the electric car industry.

The Fisker Ocean isn't slated to launch until 2022, but that hasn't stopped Fisker from outlining its future plans. By the middle of the decade, Fisker's EV lineup will expand to four models.

Joining the Fisker Ocean will be a new super-sports sedan based on the EMotion concept that will take on the Tesla Model S, a sports crossover, and a pickup truck rivaling the Rivian R1T.

Each vehicle will utilize platforms, battery packs and components sourced from "the world's leading OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers."

"When we created Fisker Inc., we set out to create a company that could deliver electric mobility as a service, but do so through a range of highly emotional and differentiated vehicles. Together with our innovative lease program, we will be able to bring a diverse choice of products to suit a wide variety of customers across many different budget points," said Henrik Fisker, chairman and CEO of his namesake company.

No further details were announced, but Fisker has released a render previewing the new EVs. The new electric sedan looks a lot like the original Emotion concept unveiled in 2018. The teaser photo suggests the Emotion concept's butterfly doors will make it to production. This is the first time Fisker has announced plans to build an electric sports crossover, which looks more stylish than the Fisker Ocean thanks to its coupe-style sloping roofline.

Fisker teased its new electric pickup back in February but promptly deleted the social media post. It will certainly face some stiff competition in the crowded electric pickup segment against the Rivian R1T, Tesla Cybertruck, and the electric Ford F-150. Technical details for Fisker's new EVs are unknown, but the Fisker Ocean will use an 80 kWh lithium-ion battery pack delivering a range of 250-300 miles.
