Fisker Inc. has ‘completely dropped’ solid-state batteries

Henrik Fisker, of electric vehicle startup Fisker Inc, discussed his decision to abandon attempts to create a solid-state battery, and instead to partner with suppliers like Foxconn.

In an interview with The Verge, he was quoted as saying:

“It’s the kind of technology where, when you feel like you’re 90 percent there, you’re almost there, until you realize the last 10 percent is much more difficult than the first 90. So we have completely dropped solid-state batteries at this point in time because we just don’t see it materializing”
