Fisker Automotive, the Southern California maker of the luxury plug-in hybrid Karma sports sedan, says they are on track to fill most of the 3,000 pre-orders they received by the end of this year.
The Karma boasts “high impact performance, low impact on the environment. 403 horsepower, 300 mile/483 km extended range (EVer) and 100 MPG achievable.” The 2012 model runs from $96,000 to $110,000 and qualifies for a $7,500 federal income tax credit.
Fisker plans to start producing more affordable mid-size models, code-name ‘Project Nina’ next year. They recently inked a deal with BMW to supply the four-cylinder turbo charged range extending engines and intend to use former GM plant in Delaware to build the Nina.
