Fisker is recalling all cars the brand has built

Fisker has previously stated that the brand has had 10,000 cars built. But now 18,346 cars are being recalled.

In the middle of a looming bankruptcy, Fisker Inc., headed by Danish Henrik Fisker, is now being forced to recall 18,346 cars.

This is more than 8,000 cars more than Fisker previously stated that it had built at the Magna Steyr factory in Austria. A factory which, by the way, does not expect that Fisker will ever build cars again. Read more about it here .

The new recall is due to two errors. One – which 11,201 cars may be affected by – concerns a lack of engine power. This is due to a fault in the electric motors.

Reuters writes that.

The second defect on which the recall is based concerns possibly defective screens in the cars. Here, owners have reported cars that cannot display the legally required items such as a speedometer.

Fisker himself says that they will try to solve the problems with a software update. But here too there can be problems. Several Fisker owners have previously said that it is difficult for the cars to download new software at all.

Earlier, Fisker said that 10,193 cars had been built at the factory in Austria, and that they had sold just over 5,000 of them. However, the latest settlements show that it is therefore about far more cars.

For the same reason, Fisker Inc., which is now down to having 150 employees on the payroll after yet another round of layoffs, may have significantly larger stocks of cars standing than first assumed.

Fisker also has such big problems paying its bills that founder Henrik Fisker has now effectively lost control of the car brand. Control now rests with one or more investors.

One of them has apparently demanded an otherwise modest million dollar loan to be repaid immediately. Just as Fisker has moved from its head office into a building where it was previously responsible for the development of the brand's only model, the Ocean. Read more about it here .

The car brand has notified all its employees in advance that they will be fired if the brand cannot save itself before 1 July. Fishermen in Austria have also already sought bankruptcy protection from the local courts.
