Aside from confirming that it will be skipping out on the 2011 Detroit Auto Show, Fisker Automotive's recent batch of announcements hint that the company is inching towards production. With March 2011 still circled on the calendar as the month of delivery for the Karma, eager U.S. buyers have but a few more months to wait before taking delivery of Fisker's plug-in. Well, at least that's what the automaker keeps telling us.
With its U.S. plans laid out, Fisker Automotive has decided to ink a deal with China Grand Automotive Group (CGA). This agreement provides Fisker with a partner that will market, distribute and service the automaker's vehicles in China. CGA operates more than 200 retail stores in China and handles the distribution of 40 brands throughout the nation. The Karma will supposedly make it Chinese debut at the Shanghai Motor Show next spring and the automaker promises that its first deliveries to the nation will take place near the end of 2011. Let's hope that Fisker's expansion into another market doesn't in any way affect the Karma's U.S. launch.
