Fisker Automotive has announced plans to open a new manufacturing facility in Moreno Valley, California.

Set to build the updated Karma, the plant will become Fisker's first U.S. factory and will create approximately 150 full-time manufacturing jobs.

There's no word on when production will begin but Fisker Chief Marketing Officer James Taylor said "California's natural beauty, trend setting, technology, and environmental focus are perfectly aligned with our Karma re-launch."  He went on to say the "...close proximity of this plant to our engineering and design headquarters will yield the highest quality product and maximum flexibility to meet our customers' expectations."
