Production of Fisker Atlantic Might Not Take Place in Delaware

Fisker’s new car the Atlantic was revealed yesterday at the New York Auto Show. The reaction to the styling has been excellent, and the fact that it could be much more affordable than the Karma (it should go for Audi A6 money) makes it a great car to look forward to in the future.
But it might also spark a bit of outrage. You see, the Atlantic should have been built at the ex-GM Delaware factory, but the company CEO reportedly said that “the whole plan has changed.”

Delaware is still the prime choice for production according to Tom LaSorda, CEO of Fisker, but he’s considering other options. If production there is too costly, production will be shifted elsewhere, even Finland.

However, LaSorda did say production could start really quickly if Delaware was chosen, as all they needed was a paint shop.

“We are looking at other strategic partnerships. Everything is possible. We will make this car with or without the DOE,” said Fisker Executive Chairman Henrik Fisker.
