Fisker financials, failures, fires and furloughs
There's no hiding that Fisker has had one or two problems. It started with problems acquiring DoE loans, continued when Fisker got sued, and has taken a nasty turn with inquries over a fire involving one of the cars. Those issues have sadly continued over the last year or so, with poor reviews from Consumer Reports, and the destruction of several Karmas in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
Worse still, Fisker appears to be on its last legs. With production stalled following battery supplier A123's bankruptcy, Henrik Fisker's departure from the company bearing his name and the redundancies of most of the workforce, the Fisker Karma might not be long for this world.
Furloughs, failures, finality?
