Nissan should offer $FSR a lifeline
$FSR is running low on cash and nearing bankruptcy. They have developed a truck platform and are hoping to launch a pickup truck in 2026. Nissan has assembly plants in the US that could potentially build this truck. Fisker is asking Nissan for a $400 million investment into their platform and manufacturing. I think Nissan should offer Fisker a lifeline for these reasons:

  • Nissan won't need to develop an all-electric truck platform in-house
  • Nissan has underutilized US plants that could build the Fisker truck without major new investment
  • A new electric pickup would allow Nissan to compete with rivals like Ford, GM and Tesla in the hot EV truck space
  • a conservative estimate has Nissan with over $10 billion in cash on its balance sheet; $400 million would be small to Nissan (source)
  • if Fisker does become profitable and gets itself out of a going concern situation, it would make for an attractive acquisition target for Nissan
