Geely is no longer interested in buying Fisker
Geely is no longer interested in buying Fisker

Chinese Auto Companies are still the ones that will help the Karma Company, the American auto manufacturer that makes luxury hybrid cars come out of the crisis but nobody knows which one will it be. 

According to informed sources of “Reuters” agency the Chinese Zhejiang Geely holding that was one of the biggest favorites to purchase the American manufacturer of hybrid luxury cars, the  Fisker Automotive, for a long time has refused to buy the Californian Company.  

The reason of this decision may lay in the conditions that Fisker Company received from the Ministry of Energy. According to these conditions in case of receiving a grant of $ 529 million the company has an obligation to organize its production at the former General Motors’ plant in Delaware. As one of the “Reuters” agency sources says, “These commitments are already submitted to several risks. The factory is too big and has too much space to rebuilt, that’s why the production’s and workplaces’ recovery may take a really long time.”

As “Reuters” agency also states, Geely’s decision to leave the game for purchasing the Fisker Automotive has nothing to do with Henrik Fisker’s, the Californian Company’s founder resignation. Last week he told the reporters that there have been some serious differences with the Geely’s top managers concerning the Fisker’s business strategy.  

According to “Reuters” agency, one of the main reasons Geely was interested in purchasing the Fisker Automotive was the Delaware GM’s plant. The Chinese Holding that owns Volvo had planned to produce their Swedish vehicles for the North American market there. According to the same sources another Chinese auto manufacturer, the Dongfeng Group, is also interested in purchasing the Californian Company. Dongfeng Group has made its final offer to the Fisker’s managers last week. The company offered $ 350 million for an 85% stake going to the American manufacturer. As you may have already figured out, $ 350 million is way less than $ 529 million that the Fisker manufacturer actually needs to come out of the crisis.
