What could that be?, and all have in common? The same producer.
Last Friday, Reuters reported that Magna Steyr, a subsidiary of Magna International in Canada, signed a memorandum of understanding with Fisker in late 2022 to build the upcoming electric SUV. Magna Steyr did not immediately return our request for confirmation of the talks and Fisker did not immediately return Roadshow̵
Magna Steyr is of course the home of the Supra and Z4 – two rather unlikely platform mates. The company, based in Graz, Austria, also builds the. So, yes, Magna Steyr would be a pretty incredible company to handle the final production.
It becomes clear that Fisker is teasing more and more information about its comeback EV, that Fisker himself probably won’t be the one to build it. The company is not even allowed to use its own platform. Instead, Fisker previously confirmed that Volkswagen’s use continues to be discussedfor the vehicle. However, there is currently no firm agreement with VW.
According to Reuters, Fisker is hoping to reach a final agreement with Magna in the coming months to ensure production of the vehicle. When the Ocean rolls off the line, it will be the first EV of the previously defunct company. CEO Henrik Fisker’s first assignment at an automotive company brought about the karma. Today, the car still exists a bit after China’s Wanxiang bought the technology and created the Karma brand that sells it.
However, it is not entirely clear whether Magna will produce the ocean for every country. The original report cites comments from Fisker that production for the US and China may end up elsewhere.
