EV Startup Fisker Files For Bankruptcy

Fisker has filed for bankruptcy protection this week as deal talks with a big automaker collapsed, exposing the electric vehicle (EV) startup to the fallout of a rapid cash burn to deliver Ocean SUVs in the US and Europe, Reuters reported.

The EV maker's unit, Fisker Group Inc, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, listing estimated assets in the range of $500 million to $1 billion and liabilities in the range of $100 million to $500 million.


Conceived to succeed Fisker Automotive, which was organized in 2007 and produced a hybrid electric car, Fisker Inc. was backed by a $539-million federal loan.



Founded by Danish automotive designer Henrik Fisker and his wife Geeta Gupta-Fisker, it launched in 2016 in Manhattan Beach, California in 2016, aiming to produce sustainable and innovative electric vehicles.
