First factory-built Fisker Karma live photos
First shown as a concept back in 2008, Fisker has finally rolled out the first factory-built version of its upcoming Karma plug-in hybrid luxury sedan at this week’s 2010 Paris Auto Show. And after seeing it in person, it’s pleasing to see that Fisker has kept most of the original show car’s dramatic lines.
Underneath the pretty sheet metal is an all-aluminum spaceframe made in cooperation with Norsk Hydro. The exterior body is a combination of aluminum panels and composite panels and the roof features an integrated solar panel.
The Fisker Karma is being assembled by independent vehicle manufacturer Valmet in Finland. Annual volume is anticipated to reach 15,000 cars, with half of these expected to be sold in Europe. Pricing in the U.S. should start around the $87,900 mark when the car goes on sale in February 2011. For more details on the Fisker Karma, check out our Paris preview story by clicking here.
