Fisker Karma at Monaco – Click above for high-res image
The Fisker Karma may have been driven for "a couple of laps" around the Formula One Monaco Grand Prix by Prince Albert of Monaco in late May, but that doesn't mean that it's going to hit dealerships in the U.S. anytime soon. In fact, word is the promised delivery date of the Karma plug-in has been pushed back again. Sort of.
According to Green Car Reports, Roger Ormisher, Director of Global Communications for Fisker Automotive, says that the "first dealer [demonstrator vehicles] and customer cars will arrive on these shores in July." Of course, that means the automaker will log zero sales in May and, as Ormisher told GCR, "probably not June either." Previously, Ormisher told AutoblogGreen that:
Let's hope this is the last of the Karma's already numerous delays.
We will start shipping cars to retailers and importers in both U.S. and Europe to arrive during May/June and the first deposit holders will be in their cars in the June/July timeframe.
