“This important step signals our commitment to bringing the Fisker Atlantic to market as soon as we can,” said Fisker Automotive, President and CEO, Tony Posawatz. “We will be bringing our own engineering footprint closer to our supplier base and the expertise and professional workforce that have driven the American automotive industry for more than a century.”

The previous technical center for Fisker was in Pontiac, Michigan – where the final development was completed for the Fisker Karma.
