During its first Product Vision Day event late on Thursday, held in California, electric vehicle innovator Fisker showcased prototypes of three upcoming models, as well as an off-roading package for their existing Ocean compact crossover.
The company unveiled future models like the Pear, a city-friendly compact car, the Alaska, a lifestyle pickup truck, and the Ronin, a four-door convertible. The booking process for all of these vehicles has been initiated.

The Pear is expected to hit the market first with a planned launch around mid-2025. With a starting price of $29,900, it is set to be one of the most economical electric vehicles available.
The Alaska is also projected to be released in 2025, with an introductory price of $45,400.
While Fisker did not share a timeline for the Ronin, it confirmed that this convertible will be available in a limited quantity with a base price of $385,000.
“Fisker is not static,” announced Henrik Fisker, the CEO and founder of the company, at the event. “We have ambitious plans to expand into various segments and we want the world to know this.”
Prototype of Fisker Pear
Fisker had previously shared that the Pear would be about 177 inches long, slightly shorter than electric compact crossover competitors like the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Volkswagen ID.4. It is designed to seat six and includes a concealed tailgate, which Fisker calls the Houdini Trunk. The company aims to achieve a maximum range of around 300 miles.
The production of the Pear is being assigned to Foxconn, a Taiwanese contract manufacturer renowned for constructing iPhones for Apple. Foxconn will take charge of Pear’s production at a former General Motors facility in Lordstown, Ohio, which it purchased from the embattled EV startup Lordstown Motors. The Pear will also incorporate a platform, the SLV1, being jointly developed by Fisker and Foxconn.
Prototype of Fisker Alaska
The Alaska will be a compact pickup designed on the same platform as the Ocean, the FT31, which was jointly developed by Fisker and Austrian independent contract manufacturer Magna Steyr, who also manufactures the Ocean at a facility in Austria.
The Alaska is set to be the lightest electric truck globally and will feature a flexible bed that can be expanded to 9.2 feet. Fisker is aiming for a maximum range of approximately 340 miles.
Prototype of Fisker Ronin
The Ronin can be defined as a convertible that boasts supercar-like performance. It will feature a three-motor powertrain capable of delivering over 1,000 hp combined output, and a battery pack capable of more than 600 miles of range, Fisker says. The company also quotes a 0-60 mph time of around two seconds.
The Ronin will feature a retractable carbon-fiber hardtop and five seats inside. It will also have butterfly doors for cabin access.
Fisker Ocean Force E
During its Product Vision Day, Fisker also revealed the new Force E package for the Ocean, which had been previewed earlier in May. The package will be available starting next year, with pricing details to be announced closer to the launch.
Designed for the Ocean’s Ultra and Extreme models, the package includes enhancements such as a raised suspension, underbody protection, and 33-inch off-road tires, among other features.
