From a long time Volt follower and a first time GM Chevrolet buyer, hiring Tony Posawatz is great news. It could make me comfortable enough to put a deposit on an Atlantic (which will likely come after the GM ELR is being produce/sellable).

Wow - surprised and a little shocked that LaSorda is leaving so soon!

Who knows, maybe the next step is for Fisker to be acquired by GM, After all, they have a number of GM parts in the Karma, including the engine, and they have an option on the Wilmington GM assembly plant. And now, the new CEO, Tony Posawatz, has many years of experience working with GM.

Highly unlikely - GM wouldn't get anything other than a couple of designs. The Volt tec is as good if not better than the Karma's powertrain - superior NVH profile IMO.

What is NVH? (We need a thread devoted exclusively to decoding the 1001 acronyms here on fiskerbuzz!)

NVH = Noise, Vibration, and Harshness - it's a big deal to engineer this to "reasonably low at reasonable cost" (it's easy to get it very low if you pay more).

noise, vibration and harshness. this really is in the context of the range extender - the noise, shuddering etc. you feel when it kicks in and when you accelerate for example in Sport mode. The Volt does this with amazingly low levels of NVH - kudos for GM on perfecting it.

LaSorda said finding a long-term CEO was one of his responsibilities when he took the job. He recruited Posawatz after Posawatz retired from GM on July 1.

Posawatz spent more than 30 years at GM, where he led global electric vehicle development. He was the first person named to the development team of the Chevrolet Volt electric car in 2006 and ran that team for the next six years. The Volt went on sale in late 2010.

"Tony is the perfect CEO for Fisker," LaSorda said. "He has been at the forefront of the industry's technological revolution and one of the few people in the world to bring an EV to mass production."
