The Fisker Karma: Is this 100 mpg plug-in hybrid really on its way?
Fisker Automotive has a goal of setting up a group of retailers across the U.S. to sell and service their luxury plug-in hybrid cars. How many retailers? Fisker says it wants 40 locations by the end of June 2009. That's a pretty lofty goal for any car company, let alone a new car company that just opened its doors in 2007.
Well...just yesterday, Fisker Automotive released a statement that revealed it already has 32 "award-winning retailers" in its network (if you download the PDF you can see the full list). Going over the list of charter members, it looks like 31 of the locations are in the U.S. and one is in British Columbia. Not a bad start, right?
The first of the Fiskers to hit the showroom floors will be the Fisker Karma sedan. The MSRP for the Karma, an eco-friendly, luxury, plug-in hybrid car, is expected to be $87,900. See more »
