With just three words, another truck seems to have entered the electric fray. Henrik Fisker, CEO of Fisker Inc., tweeted and quickly erased the image of a new SUV called Alaska with the words “Electric pick up!”.
This is the first time that any mention of this vehicle has been made public, and Fisker’s response to several followers who responded to his tweet only added to the mystery. In all cases, all he said was: “Sorry for the mistake: it will be deleted.” A Fisker spokesman confirmed that the tweet was accidentally sent by Henrik and was quickly deleted: “We can’t confirm the model or name of a vehicle that may have been seen in the tweet. We can, however, confirm that Fisker Inc. is indeed working on a modular electric vehicle platform that may underpin several different affordable EV models in the future.”
The Alaska SUV or pickup appears to be ready for an adventure with a wide stance, enhanced by even wider tires. Not surprising for a Fisker design, the Alaska rear looks a little bit like the Land Rover Evoque. It has sharp vertical and horizontal design lines, and the name appears in capital letters on the back. It also featured slim taillights and red details to another design brand.
