Former BMW executive joins Fisker to help leadership oversee its strategy to achieve 2027 annual production goal of one million EVs.
Today, Fisker announced a new hire to help oversee its strategy towards its production goal of one million vehicles per year in 2027. Alpay Uguz joins the Fisker team as the new Senior Vice President of Global Manufacturing. Uguz will report directly to CEO Henrik Fisker, effective immediately.

“Alpay’s wealth of hands-on, global manufacturing experience will boost Fisker’s already ultra-fast development process, creating greater efficiency by incorporating the latest in new manufacturing methods. Alpay and his team will integrate advanced manufacturing processes early in the vehicle design and engineering phases. We are developing a seamless approach from design to production with faster assembly times, ultimately providing high-quality vehicles optimized for cost and service to our customers.”Henrik Fisker, CEO & Chairman, Fisker Inc.

The company is currently working towards selling out pre-orders for the Fisker Ocean One. Earlier today, Fisker sent out the fourth wave of pre-order invites by email. The company is just shy of two-weeks since it opened up pre-orders for Ocean One on July 1st.
