New CEO, Tony Posawatz, was one of the key players in the development of the Chevrolet Volt.A familiar face will lead the charge when Fisker Automobiles, the high-profile, low-selling electric-car start-up, comes to town Monday. The California-based company's new CEO, Tony Posawatz, was one of the key players in the development of the Chevrolet Volt.
Posawatz is to tell the Automotive Press Association how his experience getting the Volt to market on time shaped his plan to transform Fisker from a shaky start-up into a stable manufacturer of luxury-sport extended-range electric vehicles. Posawatz joined Fisker in August. He replaced another well-known Detroiter: former Chrysler boss Tom LaSorda.
A new generation of moguls is learning an old lesson: Building cars is harder than it looks.
The comparable will be the Fisker Atlantic which is roughly half the cost of the Fisker Karma. So below the Cadillac ELR I'm guessing.Tell you what, the Cadillac ELR looks nicer to my eyes, plus it's got a major player, GM, behind it and proven technology, using the extended range of the Volt, but with more performance!
It's supposed to sell for less then the Tesla Sedan, but (obviously) more then the Volt. That would put it below the Fisker....
Can't really see what would coax buyers to the Fisker when the ELR hits the market!
