The electric pickup segment is already looking very crowded.
We’re about to witness a new era of electric pickup trucks. Elon Musk recently said on Twitter that the long-awaited Tesla Pickup will finally debut in around two to three months from now. US startup company Rivian is also working on the R1T, an electric pickup with an impressive 400-mile driving range and a combined output of 754 hp and with 826 lb-ft of torque, and Ford recently showed its forthcoming electric F-150 pickup towing more than one million pounds worth of freight trains and other F-150s. And now another American automaker wants to enter what's quickly becoming a crowded market for electric pickups.
In a post on Twitter, Henrik Fisker released a rendering of what appears to be an unannounced electric pickup truck. "ALL automotive segments have to be electrified ! After our Fisker electric SUV, we have already decided on our next 2 EV’s on the same platform!” he announced.
No details about the proposed pickup were given, but the image shows the rear with the Fisker logo and lettering prominently displayed on the tailgate. It also appears to be finished in silver with a contrasting black roof. Fisker’s upcoming SUV has also been shown with a two-tone finish featuring a black roof.
Before Fisker’s electric pickup arrives, the company will launch its first electric SUV. Due to arrive in late 2021, Fisker’s unnamed SUV will be a true Tesla Model Y rival with an affordable price tag under $40,000, a sleek design incorporating a retracting roof and 300-mile range. Look out for the reveal this December.
After that, Fisker will launch the long-awaited eMotion. Originally, the electric sedan was supposed to enter production in 2020, but has been pushed back so that Fisker can improve the battery technology to ensure the eMotion lives up to expectations.
