The new facility, currently planned to open in Spring 2013, will bring Fisker closer to key component suppliers and low-emission technical expertise at the heart of the American automotive industry. It will also be closer to Fisker’s intended production facility for the Atlantic in Delaware.

The company previously had a technical center in Pontiac, Michigan, from Fall 2008 through Spring 2010 as final development and engineering was completed on the company’s award-winning first car, the Fisker Karma sedan.
