Fisker is developing a pure-electric ute to sit alongside its Tesla Model Y rival, the company's founder has confirmed. Details about the ute are scant, but Henrik Fisker overnight tweeted a mockup of a ute tailgate and canopy, and confirmed the brand's next models will share a platform with the as-yet unnamed SUV.
