2012 Fisker Karma – Click above for high-res image gallery

The Fisker Karma's official production date is set for March 21st. Yeah. That's right. Fisker now claims that the luxury plug-in hybrid will roll off assembly lines in Finland near the tail end of March, with deliveries set to commence in April. So we're told.

The oft-delayed Karma missed its initial November 2009 launch, failed to hit the market in time for its September 2010 debut and was delayed again, slipping past its February 2011 production date. However, the buzz on the interwebs seems to indicate that Fisker may actually deliver on its promise this time around.

Fisker claims 3,000 eager buyers have forked over $5,000 to reserve the $95,900 Karma and still insists that it aims to sell 15,000 of them a year, but not in 2011. The Karma's delayed launched has forced Fisker to revise 2011 production numbers. The company now says that 1,500 Karmas will come charging off the assembly lines per month beginning in October. We're ready.
