Fisker partnered with Magna International in 2020 to build the Fisker Ocean through Magna Steyr in Graz, Austria. Fisker did this as part of their unique asset-light business model. The asset-light approach allows Fisker to be laser focused on design, development, and the sale of electric vehicles. As part of their partnership, Fisker issued Magna International warrants in their company that would vest upon achieving certain milestones.

Warrants were vested by Magna International based on achieving manufacturing milestones in connection with entering into a Cooperation Agreement.
