Fisker Automotive is taking it slow, but the upstart automaker hopes that an attractive lady or two will take your mind off of the production delays until the Paris Motor Show starts later this month. Why Paris? Because that's where the first "factory-built Karma" will be displayed in public for the first time. Also in Paris, Fisker representatives will give details, "about the expansion of its prestigious global importer network" that will help the company reach its target of 100,000 vehicles a year.
CEO Henrik Fisker said in a statement that:
Here's one more interesting tidbit from the release: "The Fisker Karma ... can achieve an annual average economy of 2.4L/100 km (100 mpg) and emissions of just 83g/km." An annual miles per gallon rating seems like an odd addition, but considering the venue, it might be necessary to stoke the flames of consumer interest.We had a chance to change the premium vehicle segment with a new kind of vehicle and a new brand that appeal to consumers who are passionate about the environment, and who wish to drive a beautiful car that reflects their desire to lead a lifestyle of responsible luxury. We are very excited to be introducing the first factory-built Karma luxury plug-in hybrid in Paris, a city known for inspiring its own passions.
