Fisker Vehicles

Fisker's Karma, first shown in concept form in 2008, was a plug-in hybrid with a claimed range of 50 miles. A range extender, not dissimilar from what's available on today's Chevy Volt and BMW's i3 and i8, eliminated range anxiety, but not corporate anxiety; Fisker went into bankruptcy in 2012. The assets were purchased by a Chinese consortium, with the goal of resuming production of the Karma, now branded simply as 'Karma'. As this is written (Fall 2016) Karmas are not readily available in the North American market.

In October of 2016 designer Henrik Fisker launched Fisker, Inc. to develop vehicles with both an ultra-competive range and a lower cost of batteries.As told to Bloomberg and reported by Autoblog, "at some point in late 2017, Fisker will reveal the "spiritual successor" to the maligned Fisker Karma. Unsurprisingly, given Fisker's history, the new EV will be a premium vehicle that could have a range of more than 400 miles on a charge. A lower-cost EV (think $40,000) will follow. Fisker told Bloomberg that the reason he wants to get back into the EV world is because battery technology keeps on advancing." Pre-owned Karmas can be found, and look to enjoy a cult following similar to other now-discontinued brands.

Fisker: cooling fan responsible for Karma fire; voluntary recall has started

After two short "we're looking into it" official statements (1, 2), Fisker Automotive has announced that it has completed a "detailed investigation" into the strange, spontaneous combustion of a Karma plug-in hybrid that happened in Woodside, CA last weekend. The result? A voluntary recall to fix the low-temperature cooling fan located in the left front of the Karma, in front of the wheel, that apparently has "an internal fault that caused it to fail, overheat and start a slow burning fire."
Engine packaging to blame for Fisker Karma garage fire? [UPDATE]

While the investigation of the Fisker Karma that toasted a Texas garage is not over, pundits have begun to weigh in. Automotive News has found a particularly credible one in Jon Bereisa, CEO of Auto Lectrification and the chief engineer of the General Motors EV1 and systems architect for the Chevrolet Volt. And according to Bereisa, the poor packaging of the Karma's internal combustion engine is what likely caused the fire.
