Might not be built in Delaware

Fisker doesn't have the best track record for launching vehicles on schedule, so it isn't terribly surprising that a new report is indicating the production version of the Atlantic concept could miss its planned launch date.

Speaking with Automotive News, Fisker CEO Tom LaSorda said the model might not be built at the company's Wilmington, Delaware plant. Noting that the "whole plan has changed," LaSorda said the company won't decide where to build the model until later this summer. This will likely mean the range-extended electric vehicle won't go into production later this year as originally promised.

While funding issues appear to be at fault, Henrik Fisker commented "We are looking at other strategic partnerships. Everything is possible. We will make this car with or without the DOE (U.S. Department of Energy)" which recently blocked the company's access to a government loan.
