Fisker Karma Europe Sales Figures

Fisker-Karma-auto-sales-statistics-EuropeAnnual sales figures for the Fisker Karma in Europe.

The Fisker Karma electric sedan with a gasoline engine as a range-extender was designed by Henrik Fisker with the philosophy that “environmentally friendly cars can be beautiful too.” The Karma was produced in Finland by contract manufacturer Valmet Automotive, who have also produced cars like the Porsche Boxster and Cayman and the new generation Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Unfortunately, the reliability of Fisker’s technology was questioned after reports of breakdowns and even fires had surfaced. The Karma has been recalled for “potential safety issue” with the cooling system in 2012, which was likely related to the reported fires. The company was also plagued with financial difficulties, and when Fisker’s battery supplier went bankrupt in 2012, production of the car came to a halt. A total of 2.450 Karma’s have been produced, 488 of which have been sold in Europe.

Fisker Automotive filed for bankruptcy in late 2013 and was subsequently bought by the Chinese auto-parts conglomerate Wanxiang Group, who previously also had bought Fisker’s bankrupt battery supplier A123 systems and who plan to restart production of the Karma at the end of 2014. The chairman of Wanxiang Group  also announced that he will build the Fisker brand into a full line-up of electric vehicles to compete on a worldwide scale with Tesla, and the billionaire is prepared to go bankrupt to achieve this goal.
