Fisker Karma deliveries pushed back
The initial plan was for the 2011 Fisker Karma to reach consumers by March or April but when that period of time came and went without a Fisker to be had, people began questioning when the Karma would actually reach showrooms and customers. Well, according to a discussion between GreenCarReports.com and Fisker Automotive director of global communications Roger Ormisher, the first Fisker owners should be able to enjoy their emission free performance sedans by the 4th of July.
Fisker seemingly expects to report no sales in the United States for May or June, meaning that their first official sale in the US market will likely (or hopefully) come in the third quarter of 2011. These models delivered from the Valmet Automotive production facility in Uusikaupunki, Finland. Fisker has stated in the past that they expect to deliver 7,000 Karma sedans in 2011, which would put them at a pace of over 1,000 per month starting in July. This could be a lofty goal as the high-priced Karma would have to compete in sales with the much more affordably priced 2011 Nissan Leaf and Chevrolet Volt.
