It's not likely that anyone who was able to afford a $100,000-plus Fisker Karma
extended-range plug-in (yes, we're talking about you, Leonardo DiCaprio
and Cee Lo Green
) needs a financial lifeline today, but they're going to get one nevertheless. With the luxury model having been out of production for more than two years after the company behind it ran out of cash, Fisker's
new owners are offering a Consumer Support Program (CSP) for those looking to get the plug-ins repaired
, and we imagine there are a few of them. It's at least a stopgap measure until the next iteration (which will be a lot like the current Karma
) comes out.
New owner Wanxiang is offering anywhere between $2,000 and $5,000 worth of parts and labor for those looking to give their Karma
models some TLC. That offer stays in place until the end of next January. Fewer than 2,500 of the Karmas were built, with the last one rolling off the line in late 2012.
Last month, Wanxiang started teasing details on TheNewFisker.com
about the company's first vehicle, which will be called the Elux Karma
and is said to have a price tag of about $135,000. Wanxiang acquired Fisker out of bankruptcy early last year for $149.2 million.
