Fisker Teases An Electric Pickup, Will Be Based On Their Upcoming Crossover
Henrik Fisker has been teasing his upcoming crossover for what feels like an eternity, but he decided to mix things up by revealing plans for two additional models.
The designer was tight-lipped on specifics, but confirmed the vehicles will be launched sometime after the crossover and ride on the same platform that underpins the upcoming electric vehicle. He also included a teaser image of what appears to be a pickup.
While the picture isn’t very revealing, it shows a tailgate with prominent “Fisker” badging. The latter resides below a round logo and some plastic cladding that’s presumably there to protect the top of the truck bed. We can also see vertical taillights, a passenger side grab handle and a gently domed roof.

Only two headrests are visible, but it’s hard to be certain if the model is a single cab, extended cab or crew cab pickup. The latter would seem the most likely as crew cab pickups have exploded in popularity.
Regardless of its configuration, the truck will face a lot of competition as a number of automakers have announced plans for electric pickups. Rivian’s R1T is probably one of the best-known and it’s scheduled to go into production in 2020 with a starting price of $69,000.

However, they’re far from the only automaker working on an electric truck. Ford teased their electric F-150 last month in a stunt that involved a prototype pulling ten double-decker train cars loaded with 42 F-150s.
General Motors has also confirmed plans for an electric pickup, but the elephant in the room is Tesla. Their truck will be unveiled later this year and will undoubtedly attract a lot of attention and, presumably, pre-orders.
