Fisker has announced today that it will be providing a glimpse of its future at the upcoming 2012 New York Auto Show, and just to heat things up has also released this teaser image.

No other details have been released though it’s widely expected that the teaser image is for Fisker’s follow-up to the Karma, the highly anticipated Project Nina.

Project Nina is only a code name for the new model, which like the Karma will be a range-extended electric sedan.

Unlike the Karma, however, Project Nina will be built in the U.S. and will be significantly more affordable, though it still won’t be cheap. Pricing should be similar to the $57,400 ($49,900 after tax credits) starting price of its main rival, the Tesla Model S.    

Note, Project Nina won’t be a single model but rather a family of different boydstyles all using a variation of the same range-extended electric drivetrain found in the Karma. The first model will be a mid-size luxury sedan about the same size as a BMW 3-Series or Mercedes-Benz C Class.

The development of Project Nina has not been without its own hurdles. Fisker was recently forced to stop work on its plant in Delaware and lay off 26 employees after the Department of Energy blocked access to federal loans due to what it claims are several contractual milestones that are yet to be met by the Californian startup. Despite this, production of Project Nina is expected to get underway around the end of the year.

The first press day of the 2012 New York Auto Show is April 4, so we don’t have long to wait now until the covers come off Fisker’s future model.
