Significant investments from major venture capital firms, a half-billion dollar conditional loan from the U.S. government and the establishment of a global network of independent retailers highlight the new American automaker’s rapid growth. Since its founding in August 2007 Fisker Automotive has:

• Assembled a team of forward-looking auto industry veterans with more than 200 years of collective experience

• Introduced the world’s first premium plug-in electric hybrid vehicle, the Fisker Karma

• Established global headquarters in Irvine, California and a first-class engineering facility in Pontiac, Michigan

• Appointed a network of 42 independent U.S. retailers and three European distributors with proven track records in customer satisfaction (visit for list);

• Partnered with Tier 1 automotive suppliers

• Applied for more than 50 patents

• Been awarded a $528.7 million U.S. Department of Energy conditional loan

• Announced Project Nina, the development of an affordable, family-oriented plug-in hybrid for 2012 that will ultimately create more than 5,000 U.S. jobs

• Signed a letter of intent to purchase an assembly plant in Wilmington, Delaware

• Secured more than 1,500 customer deposits;

• Been featured on the cover of the June 8, 2009 issue of Forbes magazine as “The Next Detroit.”

“What we’ve achieved in two short years is unprecedented,” said Henrik Fisker, co-founder and CEO, Fisker Automotive. “Fisker Automotive has laid the foundation for the next generation car company. We look forward to delivering to consumers eco-friendly vehicles that don’t compromise power, style or performance.”

In third quarter 2010 Fisker Automotive will begin delivering Karma plug-in hybrids to appointed retailers and distributors worldwide, less than 36 months after the concept car first appeared at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in 2008.
