Henrik Fisker doesn't want to be like Tesla or any of the other startup automakers trying to corner the electric car market, largely by manufacturing luxury vehicles. But his planned second car could be a radical step towards that goal.

Unveiled last month, Fisker Inc.'s new electric car is set to cost less than $30,000 and be a dramatic reinvention of not only the compact car, but also the format of the car as we know it.

In an interview with dot.LA, Henrik Fisker said it is the right time to rethink not only who might be willing to buy new electric cars, but also the kind of car city-dwellers will want to own.

Fisker Inc. wants to make an electric car for global markets, and it plans to team with a manufacturer of Apple devices to make it a reality in less than three years.

Foxconn, the Taiwanese electronics producer, and the Manhattan Beach-based automaker announced Wednesday that the two companies signed a memorandum of understanding to develop and build an electric car toward the end of 2023 destined for not only North America and Europe markets, but also China and India. Fisker will lean on Foxconn's experience with supply chain for electric components, while it likely focuses on design. A formal partnership is expected sometime in the second quarter.

Electric car company Fisker is getting ready for its Wall Street debut, adding C-level executives and snapping up a slick 73,000 square-foot headquarters in Manhattan Beach that it's calling "Inception."

The leased headquarters will house the now Torrance-based company's design and engineering team as it ramps up to deliver the "Ocean SUV" by the fall of 2022. The company said it will double its size, bringing on about 100 employees over the coming months, most of whom will work out of the new headquarters.
