Foxconn Technology Group and Fisker Inc., a California car maker, are talking with the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. about building electric vehicles in the state, Foxconn confirmed Thursday.

“As part of the site selection process, Foxconn and Fisker have engaged with the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation to discuss plans for electric vehicle manufacturing,” Foxconn said in a statement. “Foxconn and Fisker look forward to discussions with the WEDC.”

Foxconn and Fisker announced a formal partnership in May for Fisker’s Project PEAR. The two companies plan to build parts for electric vehicles, particularly chipsets and semiconductors.

In February, Foxconn and Fisker signed a memorandum of understanding to build their products in North America. Since that announcement, many have speculated that work would take place at Foxconn’s facility in Mount Pleasant.
