It appears Henrik Fisker hasn’t given up on making a lasting statement in the automotive world. After suffering the setback of seeing his own car company go bankrupt and then sold off to Chinese interests, the Danish designer and entrepreneur is now seeking a tie-up with a firm in India.
Speaking with India’s Economic Times, Fisker confirmed an interest in forming a joint venture with an Indian firm and revealed he had already visited a few manufacturing sites in the country. He also revealed that he’s likely to make an announcement concerning the matter in the next three to four months.
"I like doing business with people in India," Fisker said. "I want to explore the existing manufacturing abilities of Indian companies and create products together."
Said products may not necessarily be cars, by the way. Fisker’s current project is HF Design & Technology, which was formed in 2013 and has already completed a motorcycle design for the brand Viking, started by Anders Kirk Johansen, heir to the Lego empire.
HF Design & Technology also incorporates Fisker’s previous coachbuilding firm Fisker Coachbuild, and at the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show we saw Fisker team up with Galpin Auto Sports to present a coachbuilt Ford Mustang called the Rocket.
