Fisker Investments Surpass $1 Billion
Fisker Automotive Inc., a maker of plug-in hybrid sports cars, got financing that increases its funding to $1.025 billion.
The company disclosed the $129 million investment in a filing today that didn’t identify investors. It said in February it had received $263 million as part of the same financing round and at the time had $896 million in total private funding.
Fisker, based in Anaheim, California, is working to fix a defect in its Karma sedan as it seeks to resume work on a stalled plant in Delaware, where it is using $529 million in government loans to build a second model. The company is backed by investors including Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Palo Alto Investors LLC and the lithium-ion battery maker A123 Systems Inc. (AONE)
