Fisker Atlantic Officially Getting BMW 2.0-Liter Turbocharged Engine
While the fate of the Atlantic is still unsure, Fisker have secured a deal with BMW, which allows them to use the new 2.0-liter turbocharged unit, as fitted to the new 3-Series, and a few other smaller models from the Bavarian automaker’s range.
The information comes from Fisker CEO, Tony Posawats, who reportedly was also very optimistic about the future of the car. The next step for the company is the transition to being a publicly-owned firm, able to trade stocks, in a similar manner to what Tesla have done. This BMW collaboration is probably the first, as the company plans on multiple partnerships of the sort, as well as a competent lease plan.
The only hurdle standing between the new Atlantic and the Delaware assembly line is, of course, a financial one. Fisker is currently $150-million short, but with half of the Department of Energy (DOE) loan, of $529 still to come, perhaps the money issue will be solved.
