Fisker Names Ex-Chrysler Exec as New CEO

Fisker’s momentum is diminishing as the recent battery recall and the freezing of the US Department o Energy loan could hurt the still-upstart company. But the maker of the Karma range extended electric sedan now has a new CEO in former Chrysler exec Tom LaSorda, who will also be Vice Chairman of the Board.

In addition, Henrik Fisker, who co-founded Fisker Automotive in 2007, will become Executive Chairman of the company, building the company’s global brand image.

“We have created a new automotive company, launched a new Electric Vehicle extended range technology and brought the Fisker Karma to market successfully in a remarkably short timeframe,” says Henrik Fisker.

“The Fisker Karma is the first car designed and engineered in America to win BBC Top Gear’s prestigious Luxury Car of the Year Award, as well as numerous other accolades, and that is something of which I am immensely proud. I am looking forward to working closely with Tom as we steer the company into its future as an iconic global automotive brand with a range of desirable cars that offer environmentally responsible luxury,” mister Fisker adds.
