Fisker leaves Fisker

Looks like the artist lost out to the board and has left the innovative company he founded over a dispute with the executive board. It will be interesting to see where the company goes from here.



Anaheim, CA, USA, March 13, 2013: Fisker Automotive announced today the resignation of its Executive Chairman, Henrik Fisker. The Company recognizes and thanks Mr. Fisker for his service and many contributions as Fisker Automotive has progressed from start-up to a fully-fledged global automotive company.

Fisker Automotive is proud to have launched the world's first extended-range luxury electric car, the award-winning Karma sedan. The Company has a strong and experienced management team and its strategy has not changed. Mr. Fisker's departure is not expected to impact the Company's pursuit of strategic partnerships and financing to support Fisker Automotive's continued progress as a pioneer of low-emission hybrid electric powertrain technology.
