Sorry to be negative about Fisker Inc, but we have a bad feeling about the future of the company. However, negativity is unknown to the company’s founder and chief designer Henrik Fisker. He is one of the best designers of his generation and clearly he has far higher hopes than we can ever imagine. He just created and released a pickup truck concept and as ever it looks awesome. But will the future Fisker Inc electric pickup truck ever be made?
A full-scale concept study will be made. More than likely it will act as a bridge for fresh funding and to generate public interest. But Fisker Inc already has a problem. The forthcoming yet to be manufactured Fisker Ocean has around 7,000 pre-orders. On that basis demand is too low and the taxpayer funded stock market views Fisker Inc as a potentially volatile investment.
However, that hasn’t stopped Fisker Inc from attaining a market value of $3bn simply because the electric car industry as a whole is generating confidence in the taxpayer-funded stock market. The Fisker Ocean electric crossover is expected to roll off the production line by late 2022. The Fisker Inc Electric Pickup truck concept looks awesome, but we have doubts it will ever be made.
