Fisker Automotive is talking about moving forward with building its hybrid vehicles.

And the firm is looking at five states including Delaware.

Fisker entered into a partnership with a California company to provide the software to relaunch its plug-in hybrid car.

The Wilmington News Journal reports that company officials are hoping that it will provide the basis for arrangements that will allow the Fisker to own the technology for its cars.

Fisker president Roger Brown sent out an email in which he said that the company had not yet decided if it will use its Delaware facility near Newport.

Meanwhile, Alan Levin, Delaware’s economic development director, confirmed in a email that the state is talking with Fisker and its parent company about using the old General Motors’ Boxwood Road plant for the Karma and the second-generation Atlantic.
