The third-quarter report showed that Fisker posted a net loss of $91 million on operating income of $71.8 million in the third quarter, both of which were lower than market expectations, leading to a sharp fall in its share price after the results were released, with a total market capitalization of $606 million.
"China is an extremely important market for us," said Henrik Fisker, founder and CEO of the Fisker brand. Earlier, Fisker opened an office in China and released more details about its plans in China earlier this year, including the opening of a delivery center in 2023. However, at present, Fisker is facing serious financial difficulties, and it is also unknown whether this will affect the time for Fisker to enter the Chinese market, but it can be clear that in the increasingly fierce competition in the electric vehicle market, Fisker must constantly innovate and improve its products to maintain competitiveness.
