Filed under: EV/Plug-in, Hybrid, Fisker

The last time we talked to Henrik Fisker, he was a non-stop stream of optimism about the company he cofounded to build luxury plug-in hybrid automobiles. This, despite a ton of negative developments for the company in 2012. His outlook has taken a turn, apparently, since Fisker has reportedly resigned from the company that bears his name. No detailed reasons were given, but in a statement sent to Autocar, the official word is:
Effective as of Wednesday 13 March 2013, Henrik Fisker has resigned from Fisker Automotive as executive chairman, and has left the company. The main reasons for his resignation are several major disagreements that Henrik Fisker has with the Fisker Automotive executive management on the business strategy.

The last major executive shakeup at Fisker happened last August, when Tony Posawatz shifted away from the Chevrolet Volt team to become Fisker's CEO, replacing Tom LaSorda. We have asked Fisker for comment and clarification, but have not yet heard back. What this all means for the future of the company is uncertain. Anyone want to guess what these "major disagreements" are?Henrik Fisker resigns due to "major disagreements" with other execs originally appeared on Autoblog Green on Wed, 13 Mar 2013 11:15:00 EST.
