Fisker signs supplier agreement with BMW

ABR Staff Writer Published 02 September 2011

Fisker Automotive, a US-based electric car manufacturer, has signed an agreement with BMW for the supply of engines and other components for future Fisker models.

As per the agreement, the electric car maker will get a four-cylinder turbocharged engine, totalling 100,000 units per year, for its next generation of cars under a project code-named 'Project Nina'.

The production of the model, a plug-in hybrid sedan, will commence at the end of 2012 and the sale is scheduled for 2013.

The company said that the first 'Project Nina' derivative will be a mid-size premium sedan utilizing its electric vehicles with extended range (Ever) technology.

Fisker executive design director and CEO Henrik Fisker said the BMW engine was an obvious choice for us, as BMW is known for producing the best and most fuel efficient gasoline engines in the world.

Fisker chief operating officer Bernhard Koehler said this is an important agreement for the company and it is focused on building environmentally responsible cars that deliver Pure Driving Passion to its discerning customers.
