One Of The Worst Electric Car Companys Ever Is Making A Comeback

Hybrid

We hope its cars aren’t as bad as before.

For the firsttime since 2012, Fisker is planning to build plug-in hybrid vehicles at a newly purchased manufacturing plant in Southern California. The 55,670-square-footfacility is located in the city of Moreno Valley. According to the Los Angeles Times, the automaker’s lease is expected to be worth approximately $30million over a span of 10 years. Fisker is planning to relaunch the Karmasedan in mid-2016, which means that production at the new plant could startshortly. The new facility will be the first new auto assembly plant in Southern California in over 20 years.

When Fisker was in business theautomaker sold less than 2,500 vehicles before calling it quits. Its lastvehicle, the Karma, was constructed in Finland and suffered from a variety of problems.Before closing its doors co-founder Henrik Fisker left and a host ofemployees were laid off before the company had a chance to debut its entry-levelAtlantic model. Wanxiang Group, a Chinese auto parts manufacturer, later boughtFisker in hopes of re-branding the company. It’s good to see Fisker back, butwe’re not sure if getting a new facility will help the company remedy its taintedpast.
