Electric car-maker to build vehicles at Del. plant


DOVER, Del. — People with knowledge of talks between Fisker Automotive and Delaware officials say the company plans to build vehicles at a former General Motors plant in Wilmington.

The head of the California-based producer of electric vehicles said earlier this week that officials would soon announce a U.S. manufacturing site.

On Friday, a person with knowledge of the situation who didn't want to be identified because an announcement hasn't been made told The Associated Press Fisker has settled on the Wilmington site.

A state government official who also didn't want to be identified because there's been no announcement described the deal as "99 percent" complete.

A Fisker spokesman didn't immediately respond to messages from The Associated Press.
