Fisker Alaska, the electric pick-up that attacks Ford Ranger

The Ford F-150 Lightning technical sheet can be summarized:

Telo, the electric pick-up that size like a mini

Telo Pickup

5.90 meters. This is the disproportionate length of the electric pick-ups on the market that are the Ford F-150 Lightning, Chevrolet Silverado EV or the next Tesla Cybertruck. Why are they so big, especially since they are often empty ? In any case, it is not unanimous, especially in Telo, a start-up rethinking this type of vehicle.

The telo has a loading of Toyota pick-up

The three founders Jason Marks, Forrest North and Yves Béhar have developed a pick-up close to benefits but with a very different size. With 3.86 meters long, the telo is long as a mini 3 doors ! This does not prevent offering a 5 -seater cabin. Advanced Cannoo Truck, its rear seats are at the front seats of the British city car.

Thus, the bucket can expand over 1.52 meters, as much as an average Toyota Hilux type pick-up, and would be as wide as that of a rivian R1T. The loading space can even accommodate 3 additional seats. Still lacks a payload, not communicated by Telo.

Telo Pickup Mini

Higher perched than a mini (1.68 m), the telo is of course more all-terrain, and above all very efficient. Its double front/rear electric motorization displays 500 hp (380 kW), in order to move its 2 tonnes and its load without paining too much. It claims 4 seconds at 0-100 km/h empty, and 200 km/h peak. With its (wide) 106 kWh battery capacity, the electric pick-up could travel 550 km per load, in the American cycle EPA. The maximum charging power is however unknown, but the brand indicates a 20-80% in 20 minutes.

Lower size, lower price ?

In pre -orders on its official website, the Telo Truck would only cost $ 49,999 out of bonus (or € 46,460). It would therefore be less than a “full-size” pick-up. A RIVIAN R1T requests at least $ 73,000, the Ford F-150,000 dollars in professional version. Fortunately, the deposit is only $ 152, because there is no interior view and the equipment is not specified.

Fisker Alaska, the electric pick-up that attacks Ford Ranger

During his “Product Vision Day”, Fisker lifted the veil on his next three models, without however going into details. It was to do it better little by little. So, after the news on the GT Ronin, here is a focus on Alaska, the pick-up.

The vehicle is 5.30 meters long. This template therefore places him more in the face of a Ford Ranger than to a Ford F-150, the king of pick-ups in the United States. But this can be a wise choice of Fisker, since the template of the ranger is much more international. And if Ford already offers an electric F-150, this is not yet the case with the Ranger. The oval blue still has the time to react, because Fisker hopes to start the production of Alaska in early 2025.

The manufacturer already announces two battery sizes: 75 and 113 kWh. It thus targets autonomy ranging from 370 to 550 km approximately. On the performance side, depending on the versions, it will take approximately 4 to 7.2 seconds to make the 0 to 100 km/h. Alaska is built on a platform derived from that of the Ocean. Fisker wants to make it the lightest electric pick-up on the market.

What are the most anticipated electric pickups in 2022 ?

Between Tesla, Rivian, GMC or Ford, the American giants have all announced electric pickups for the years to come. Here we go around the most anticipated models, between extravagance and technical prowess.

The Americans are fond of pick-ups, which have been among many years among the most popular vehicles, far ahead of SUVs and sedans. So far, it was of course only thermal models. But that is without counting on the imminent arrival of different electric models, each more interesting than the other.

You’ve undoubtedly heard of Tesla cybertruck, which is always waiting, but we will see in this case that the Elon Musk firm is not the only one who wants to enter this market. Rivian, Ford and General Motors have all announced electric pickups with exceptional technical characteristics. Autonomy, performance, storage capacity or ultra-fast charge, we take stock of each model in this file.

RIVIAN R1T

A Californian company named Rivian has already caused a lot of ink to flow following the presentation of its revolutionary electric pick-up, the R1T. If you do not know the company, we had made a detailed presentation that you can find below.

Since the presentation of the R1T, the first customers have been delivered: we know today a little more about this electric pick-up which will have been the first to arrive on the market. With an EPA autonomy between 500 and 640 kilometers depending on the configurations chosen, the Rivian R1T seems to be cut for adventurers. And this is on this that the Californian company wanted to emphasize.

The Rivian R1T electric pick-up

With a fairly futuristic look at the front thanks to a very special light signature, the R1T necessarily makes strong impression. And again, it is without counting on the many small gadgets that the manufacturer has dotted here and there on the vehicle. We will note for example the large tunnel in front of the rear axle, which will allow you to house all kinds of personal business, if you do not opt ​​for the optional pack that installs it … Portable cuisine, just that.

In terms of technical characteristics, we will remember from the R1T rivian:

  • Autonomy between 500 and 640 kilometers (EPA cycle);
  • All -wheel drive, four engines (one for each wheel);
  • 0 to 100 km/h in 3 seconds;
  • Towing capacity of 5 tonnes;
  • Starting rate of $ 67,500;
  • Maximum power of 210 kW in fast load.

Tesla Cybertruck

In the fall of 2019, Tesla announced a vehicle straight out of a science fiction film: Le Cybertruck. With an extraordinary design, it is very likely that you have already seen this electric pick-up of the Elon Musk firm.

The protruding angles of the pick-up and its silver color are not only there to make a strong impression. Indeed, the bodywork is made of stainless steel, cold laminated, comparable to that used to build SpaceX rockets. Thus, this exoskeleton allows the Cybertruck to resist almost all external aggressions, and does not require paint on top.

Cybertruck

As always with Tesla, the performances will be there, with a 0 to 100 km/h shot in less than 3 seconds for the most powerful version. A 2.8-meter cube safe located at the rear of the Cybertruck will allow you to load the equipment that will be protected, and up to 6 people will be able to take a seat on board.

Delayed on several occasions and expected in the 2022, the Cybertruck was finally postponed for 2023.

The technical characteristics of already known cybertruck are as follows:

  • Autonomy between 400 and 850 kilometers (EPA cycle);
  • All -wheel drive, two or four engines depending on the versions;
  • 0 to 100 km/h in 2.9 seconds for the most efficient version;
  • Towing capacity of 6.4 tonnes;
  • Starting rate of $ 40,000;
  • Maximum power of more than 250 kW in fast load.

Ford F-150 Lightning

The American giant Ford has dominated pick-up sales for many years in the United States and Canada, with its famous F-150. It is quite naturally this model that the brand decided to electrify first: thus the F-150 Lightning was born.

Using many visual characteristics of its thermal cousin, Ford has still benefited from the advantages offered by electric vehicles and thus offer a power and an acceleration: 4.5 seconds to reach 100 km/h.

The big advantage of the F-150 Lightning compared to the other electric pick-ups announced is its price: 40,000 dollars for entry-level. This should make it possible to democratize this model more than that of Rivian for example, which will remain reserved for a more elitist clientele.

Among the interesting features of the F-150 Lightning, we will notably remember the possibility of using the vehicle as a generator, using the energy stored in the battery (like the Hyundai Ioniq 5 or the Kia Ev6 ))

The Ford F-150 Lightning technical sheet can be summarized:

  • Autonomy between 370 and 483 kilometers (EPA cycle);
  • All -wheel drive, two engines (one front, a rear);
  • 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds;
  • Towing capacity of 4.5 tonnes;
  • Starting rate of $ 40,000;
  • Maximum power of 150 kW in fast load.

Hummer EV

General Motors wishes to continue to bring the Hummer reference to life in the world of electric vehicles, and announced in October 2020 a hummer EV with just over 1,000 horsepower, just that.

During its announcement, the famous crab mode made a strong impression: it allows the four wheels to rotate in the same direction, so that the vehicle moves laterally, or rather diagonally (you will have guessed it, like a crab).

In addition to this crab mode, we will also retain a very luxurious interior, with two screens at the dashboard, a gigantic and motorized front chest, up to 18 cameras and an 800 volts battery architecture allowing exceptional fast performance performance.

The Hummer EV technical sheet can be summarized:

  • Autonomy estimated at 450 kilometers (EPA cycle);
  • All -wheel drive, two or three engines depending on the versions;
  • 0 to 100 km/h in 3 seconds for the Edition One version;
  • Starting rate of $ 80,000;
  • Maximum power of 350 kW in fast load.

Conclusion

You will understand at the end of this file, the electric pick-ups arrive to make a strong impression. Whether it is the integrated kitchen of the Rivian R1T, the crab mode of Hummer EV, the atypical design of the Cybertruck or the reverse load of the Ford F-150 Lightning, each manufacturer wishes to his model.

However, it should be kept in mind that these vehicles are difficult to export outside North America. Indeed, with lengths sometimes exceeding six meters and truck templates, maneuvering such monsters in small European streets is similar to a feat.

If the Tesla Cybertruck is currently still available for booking in France, it is an exception. Neither Rivian, nor Ford, nor General Motors announced the arrival on the old continent of their models for the moment. It may be impossible to meet on our roads before a long time ..
