Anaheim, California – Fisker Automotive has signed an agreement with BMW for the supply of engines and other components for future Fisker extended-range electric vehicles.
BMW will supply a turbocharged four-cylinder engine for the next generation of Fisker cars, code-named Project Nina. The cars are scheduled to go into production in a former GM plant in Delaware at the end of 2012 and be on sale globally in 2013.
The agreement calls for up to 100,000 engines per year at peak volume. The first Project Nina derivative will be a midsize premium sedan.
Based in California, Fisker recently established a European office in Munich, Germany. Its Karma Sedan and Project Nina lines are global vehicles, with sales likely to be split 40 per cent each in the U.S. and Europe, and 20 per cent in Asia.
