Henrik Fisker Reboots Efforts To Create Electric Cars, Taps Technology From UCLA
Henrik Fisker, the automotive designer behind ill fated Fisker Automotive, said today that he is starting a new company, Fisker Inc., to design a new electric vehicle. Fisker's last company--Fisker Auotmotive--was sold out of bankruptcy to Wanxiang Group in 2014. According to an interview with Fisker by Bloomberg, the new company is based on energy storage and battery technology from "several professors from UCLA". The report says Fisker is aiming at showcasing his first vehicle in the second half of 2017. Fisker, before his ill-fated venture with Fisker Automotive, had designed cars for BMW and Aston Martin.
