Fisker, the renowned automobile startup that has now become a publicly listed company, unveiled an impressive array of electric vehicle (EV) prototypes during an event in Huntington Beach, California.
These cutting-edge prototypes include a robust pickup truck with an extendable bed, a high-performance grand tourer sports car boasting a remarkable range of 600 miles, an enhanced off-road version of its Ocean SUV, and a secretive PEAR vehicle set to be developed in collaboration with Foxconn.
Unlike the traditional automotive industry’s approach of releasing new cars every year or two, Fisker’s CEO, Henrik Fisker, sees the current post-COVID era as an opportunity for acceleration rather than a hindrance.
He believes that the entire market is up for grabs in the next three years and aims to capitalize on this momentum.

One of the standout vehicles showcased is Alaska, which Fisker describes as the “Ferrari of pickups.” It targets other luxury electric pickups such as the popular Rivian R1T, the eagerly awaited Tesla Cybertruck, and the Ford F-150 Lightning.
Alaska, built on a slightly stretched Ocean platform called FT31, will offer up to 340 miles of all-electric range and will feature unique elements, including a spacious “big gulp” cupholder, an extendable bed from 4.5 feet to 7.5 feet at the push of a button, and various cubbies and storage bins, with even a special slot for a cowboy hat.
The “Houdini Trunk” feature allows the back window and rear wall to drop, creating a large sleeping area or additional space for carrying long items.
Fisker has also revealed the PEAR, which stands for Personal Electric Automotive Revolution.
This vehicle, with a starting price of $29,900 before incentives, promises up to 300 miles of range in its dual motor, all-wheel drive configuration.
The PEAR is touted as a “fully connected mobility device” equipped with Fisker’s in-house developed supercomputers called Fiskerblades, capable of handling a massive amount of data.
To achieve an affordable price point, Fisker aims for high-volume production at the Lordstown plant in Ohio, with plans to eventually produce one million PEARs annually across various factories worldwide.
Another exciting addition to the lineup is the all-electric Ronin, an elegant and powerful four-door grand tourer designed to showcase Fisker’s vision for the future of luxury sports cars.
The Ronin will feature butterfly-winged doors, a sleek coupe-like sloping roofline, and a tri-motor powertrain producing over 1,000 horsepower, capable of reaching 0 to 60 miles per hour in about two seconds.
The innovative battery pack integrated into the body aims for an unprecedented range of 600 miles.
Surprising attendees, Fisker also introduced the Force E, an off-road version of its existing Ocean SUV.
This rugged version includes widened fenders, a skid plate, and eye-catching 33-inch wheels, presenting a hardcore off-road package. Force E is expected to hit the market in the first quarter of 2024.
The event marked the first time Fisker showcased all its upcoming vehicles in prototype form, revealing the company’s ambitious product plan.
Reservations are now open for these remarkable EVs, providing enthusiasts and customers an opportunity to secure their places as the future of Fisker takes shape.
