Speaking to DetroitNews, the former BMW designer said that "it would be wrong to stay" with Fisker, denying that it all had something to do with the management's decision to sell the brand to a Chinese company.

"It's probably the most difficult decision I've ever made, but you know it was a decision that was necessary as I had major disagreements with the current executive management," Fisker said. "It would be wrong to stay. It was not specifically about the sale of the company," he added. "It was about the business strategy."

Henrik Fisker's resignation means that the company is now being run by former Chrysler CEO Tom LaSorda and former GM electric vehicle executive Tony Posawatz.
