Fisker Karma to be relaunched next year

Chinese auto parts company, The Wanxiang Corporation, is planning to relaunched the Fisker Karma next year.

The Wanxiang Corporation has saved Fisker from bankruptcy just a few months ago, for a deal worth less than 100 million euros and now the auto parts company is planning to relaunch the Karma. According to recent reports, the new Fisker Karma will introduced in the middle of 2015 and it will basically be a second version of the model.

“Wanxiang is not flashy. They bought this company, they paid cash for it, they don’t put any debt on their company and they execute”, said Roger Brown, the Fisker president, to an American newspaper. “We’re looking for a (permanent) CEO in the next 90 days. We are currently looking at a lot of the prior employees. We have a database of people that have reached out to Fisker over the years looking for employment. We’ve been flooded with people that want to come back”, he added.

The second version of the Fisker Karma will be introduced in 2015, but the model won’t make its way onto the market until a year later. A new entry-level vehicle, also signed by Fisker, will be launched in 2017. This will be named the Atlantic and it will be based on the concept car unveiled in New York, a couple of years ago. This will be a pure-electric rival to models such as the BMW 5-Series, but it will cost nearly half the price of the Karma.

The original version of the Fisker Karma has been produced, in a 4-door sedan body style, in 2011 and 2012, and it had a front engine and rear-wheel drive layout. Vehicles were assembled in Finland, and they came with a 2.0L Turbocharged Ecotec I4 engine under their hoods, along with two 161 HP (120 kW) electric motors. The average fuel consumption stood at 4.5L / 100km (62 mpg UK / 52 mpg US).
