The state of Delaware will continue to work with troubled automaker Fisker Automotive Inc., which notified Gov. Jack Markell's office of its plans Friday to lay off a large number of its staff, a spokeswoman for the governor said.
The company said the layoffs involve about three-fourths of the workers at its Anaheim, Calif., headquarters. It didn't provide numbers.
Fisker made the Karma plug-in hybrid sports car. It planned to hire more than 2,000 people to build a second line of electric hybrid cars, the Atlantic, in a former General Motors plant on Boxwood Road in Newport.
