The Torrance, Calif.-based EV startup was founded by Henrik Fisker, who is best known for designing luxury cars at BMW and Aston Martin. He made a previous attempt at launching an EV company.
However, Fisker Automotive, the company that manufactured it, filed for bankruptcy in 2013 and its remaining assets were bought by Chinese auto parts maker Wanxiang Group in 2014.
Fisker has also added to its executive team, appointing former Volkswagen Group engineer Burkhard Huhnke as chief technology officer. Huhnke previously was a senior vice president at Volkswagen of America, before more recently joining technology design company Synopsys Inc. as vice president of automotive.
