Interesting... they don't even have a concept car. How's this good news, looks like a money pit in the works.

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.
Do not taunt Happy Fun Car.

Looks like they have a concept vehicle or two.
To me, anyway.

The one Fisker car in production is currently being built in Europe.
That production is moving to Delaware - this is a great thing!

Big thumbs up to Fisker for this one!

Fisker Automotive Announces Plan to Buy U.S. Assembly PlantFisker Automotive has selected the Wilmington Assembly plant in Wilmington Delaware to build affordable plug-in hybrid cars. Fisker executives made the announcement inside the dormant facility today, joined by Vice President Joe Biden, Delaware Governor Jack Markell and other state officials. The plant will support Fisker Automotive’s Project NINA, the development and build of an affordable, family-oriented plug-in hybrid sedan costing about $39,900 after federal tax credits. Production is scheduled to begin in late 2012 and create 2000 factory jobs and more than 3000 vendor/supplier jobs when production reaches full capacity in 2014.
Straight from their website.
