According to the news posted by an online magazine, Fisker Automotive may cancel its plans to use a Delaware factory in manufacturing its next generation Atlantic sedan and searching for another alternative.
It is said that Fisker will delay the production of the Atlantic till the end of summer this year. It means the debut of the Altlantic will be delayed as well. Fisker’s director of corporate communications, Russell Datz stated that the company admits that if the company’s DOE loan money does not well churned, the plan in manufacturing the Atlantic in Delaware might be changed. However the company is still totally committing to Delaware.
Although most of the $529 million the company was planned to receive in U.S. Department of Energy loans has been delayed due to the production postponement, around 2,500 orders for the Karma has been took by Fisker. As much $169 million was aimed for Karma while $24 million was for the Atlantic that make a total of $193 million.
Other reports stated that Fisker also has already held a meeting with Karma owners, dealing with a number of matters such as battery replacement, software upgrades and the like.
The Fisker Altantic prototype that was initially known as Project Nina actually has been unveiled on Wednesday and at the New York Auto Show the company presented more details on the vehicle. The company claimed that the Atlantic price will be identical to that of the Audi A5, around $45,000. A BMW four- cylinder engine will be the only source for the Fisker Atlantic. So far, no further information related to the driving range and the first deliveries would be started at.
