Remember Fisker Automotive? The other luxury EV competitor to the Tesla Model S?
Well, after dealing with startup mismanagement and bankrupty, as well as corruption on a number of fronts, Fisker was bought and restructured by Chinese holding firm, Wanxiang. And now, they’re reportedly just about ready to startup their operations once again.
According to the Orange County Register, Fisker’s current office in Costa Mesa, CA, is currently active with around 200 employees.
Now, the next step is to complete their new 556,000-square-foot assembly plant, which will emloy an additional 150 members to help build new Fisker models. It’s being built in Moreno Valley, California, about 60 miles east of the general Los Angeles metropolitan area.
Fisker was bought out by Wanxiang after it filed for bankruptcy in 2013 and when Fisker was still active, they got around to producing around 2,600 Karmas in total.
