    • Another problem is quality. Fisker has had many issues with their first EV.  The forum that was supposed to be a cheerleader for Fisker EVs has had more traffic due to this one story than positive. https://forums.fiskerati.com/fisker-ocean/ocean-the-good-bad-ugly/ Then you have these constant power loss problems. https://techcrunch.com/2024/02/09/fisker-ocean-braking-power-loss-problems-investigation/ Then main stream media even says the products they are delivering are not ready. https://www.roadandtrack.com/reviews/a45997938/2024-fisker-ocean-test-drive/ https://jalopnik.com/fisker-ocean-crossovers-are-falling-apart-in-their-owne-1851244202 So I totally agree that Fisker will have to move in with another much larger auto company to survive. Saw many comments on the Fisker and one thing everyone seems to agree on is that Designing a good looking auto and engineering is two different things.
    • It was obvious to everyone except Henrik Fisker that Fisker would go bankrupt.   Maybe Nissan, Renault and Fisker can all merge and all go bankrupt together, because I think all of them are in trouble when the Chinese manufacturers hit the European and American markets and undercut everyone in price.
    • Fisker issued a stark warning yesterday that it might not be able to continue as a going concern after announcing $463.6 million in losses. Though building more than 10,000 of Fisker's initial model, the Ocean, the company was only able to deliver about 4,700 units in 2023. Fisker initially pursued a direct-to-consumer sales model, but just last month announced it would add dealerships alongside the existing distribution with 13 dealerships across the U.S. and Europe signed up so far. Fisker said its business plan was highly dependent on the success of the dealership model. Fisker aims to deliver 20,000 to 24,000 units in 2024. CEO Henrik Fisker said, "2023 was a challenging year for Fisker, including delays with suppliers and other issues that prevented us from delivering the Ocean SUV as quickly as we had expected". Fisker additionally said it would be cutting 15% of its workforce and pursuing a partnership with another automaker for investment and joint product development. This afternoon, a source close to the company revealed that Nissan is the sole manufacturer in "advanced talks" with Fisker.  While details of the deal are preliminary and not finalized, Nissan would invest more than $400 million into Fisker's truck platform, which the two companies would share. Nissan would build its own version of the EV truck at one of its U.S. Assembly plants.  Nissan was one of the earliest entries in the EV space with its Nissan Leaf hatchback debuting in 2010 but had since failed to gain ground against upstarts like Tesla and industry giants like Hyundai. The deal could close by the end of March.

    • @Drew Dowdell Did they say why the Silver Collar would not work with the adapter at charging Ford EVs?   Do they not have all the pins that support the slower charging in the NACS adapter?
