Fisker Karma – Click above for high-res image gallery

Anyone remember who makes the gas-powered engine that Fisker will use in the Karma plug-in hybrid? No? Well, the 2.0-liter powerplant comes from General Motors – and it might not be the only thing that the eco-luxury automaker works with bigger OEMs on as it moves towards delivering the first Karmas and the Nina after that. The Wall Street Journal spoke with Fisker CEO Henrik Fisker last week and learned that:
Of course, joint volume in purchase of batteries, etc., is a cost advantage for both sides as well. Other future joint development and plug-in hybrid specific platforms and production could also be a possibility.
The benefits can go both ways, Fisker told the WSJ, adding that his company's start-up methodology "cut 'hundreds of millions of dollars' and years from the process of making a new car." Maybe, but it's still behind schedule.
