A Closer Look

Fisker | The real Karma is the taxpayer

Fisker Automotive, the startup hybrid-electric carmaker backed by the state and federal governments, has laid off another dozen workers at its Newport-area factory.

The layoffs, which occurred quietly Friday, come as the company continues closed-door negotiations with the U.S. Energy Department for a loan that could determine whether Fisker ever builds a car in Delaware. Meanwhile, the state continues to pay the utility bills for the factory, holding out hope that the automaker will still put scores of Delawareans back to work.

Today, Fisker employs only a small maintenance team at the site “protecting plant assets and maintaining the facility,” said Fisker spokesman Russell Datz.

“We have always had a flexible business model that allows us to scale up and down as work demands. As we ramp up the project again, we will add a new headcount,” Datz said. “We’ve accomplished a lot at the plant, using more than 40 local contract firms to recycle old material and equipment. The plant is now ready for the next phase of installing new production equipment.”..
