Fisker has announced its intention to return to the U.S. market.
The new Fisker, which is officially known as Fisker Automotive and Technology Group (FATG), has announced plans to open a production facility for its range-extended Karma sedan in Moreno Valley, California. Ever since Chinese company Wanxiang bought the bankrupt Fisker in 2014, it has been the company’s intention to return to the U.S. market.
“FATG believes in the quality, work ethic and competitiveness of manufacturing in the United States,” marketing chief James Taylor said in a statement. “California’s natural beauty, trend setting, technology, and environmental focus are perfectly aligned with our Karma relaunch.” Fisker says that the new plant will create 150 manufacturing jobs.
When the Karma relaunches, it will be called the Elux Karma, a new name that was given by Wanxiang.
Recently, FATG reached out to current owners of the Karma to offer them appointed authorized CSP (customer support program) providers to assist with service and parts needs. Current owners will gets up to $2,000 in repairs performed for free along with $1,000 in labor costs.
