To move in accordance with the plan, the duo has been looking for a suitable manufacturing facility within the United States. However, we believe that Fisker may even set up a manufacturing facility in India for reduced overall production costs.

In this joint venture, we assume that Fisker will be taking care of the design of the vehicle. The Fisker Karma is one of the best-looking electric vehicles even though it was launched way back in 2012. The electronics suite and most of the manufacturing might be taken care of by Foxconn, as they are the world's third-largest electronics manufacturing services company.
