Fisker Automotive Inc.
Executive Chairman Henrik Fisker said Thursday that his struggling startup electric vehicle company hopes to resume production of its plug-in hybrid Karma "fairly soon."
The government-backed California-based automaker hasn't built a vehicle in more than six months and has been waiting for battery supplier A123 to emerge from bankruptcy before resuming production.
The cash-constrained company also has been searching for an investor and has hired outside advisers. Some analysts say Fisker may be acquired. "We have multiple interested partners for investment," Fisker said Thursday at the Chicago Auto Show.
He declined to say if Chinese companies are interested in investing in Fisker.
