Fisker Automotive

Fisker Automotive Inc. is an original company from Switzerland and was founded by Henrik Fisker as an American joint venture with Fisker Coachbuild LLC and Quantum Technologies from Irvine / California. Quantum Technologies is an automotive supplier specializing in hybrid electric vehicles. Fisker himself was financially supported by Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. Fisker Automotive had a penchant for auto tuning and developed a plug-in hybrid luxury sedan called "Karma". It should compete alongside that Porsche Panamera and the 7er series of BMW consist. It was unveiled at 2008 at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. 2011 it was time and the first car went in July to the actor Leonardo DiCaprio, who has a soft spot for tuning. It did not come to the desired large orders. 2012 caught Fisker Automotive in major economic difficulties and stopped production in the US for five months. Bankruptcy was applied for in 2013. Fisker received a whopping $ XNUM billion in public subsidies and third-party financial investments.
