Hot on the heels of news that Tesla will sell their Roadster EV in Europe, Fisker has announced plans to ship their Karma plug-in hybrid there as well. The company anticipates a production volume of some 15,000 units a year, around half of which will go to Europe, starting late next year.
The "luxury sports sedan" boasts a hybrid powertrain and a space-age roof with an integrated solar panel. Fisker claims performance figures of 0-60 MPH in less than 6 seconds and a top speed of around 125 MPH.
Although the four-seater Karma will sell for $80,000 in the US, there is speculation that Danish-born CEO Henrik Fisker is planning on a higher price tag in Europe, perhaps as much as €90,000. It seems that the weak dollar may continue to prove good news for US car companies and bad news for many European consumers.
