Fisker Wants His Luxury Coupe to be First Plug-in Hybrid
Henrik Fisker said he expects his new company to be the first to offer a plug-in electric hybrid, the CEO of Fisker Automotive said Monday at the North American International Auto Show.
Fisker unveiled a four-door sports sedan, called the Karma, with a long, sculpted roof Monday, the same day that it announced a multimillion-dollar investment from venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, the second round of funding from the firm that counts Al Gore as a partner.
Fisker is pitching a four-door plug-in hybrid, and aims to deliver the $80,000 car by the end of 2009. Fisker is one of several companies with hybrid or electric cars in the works, as niche and mass-market automakers try to alter the image of environmentally friendly vehicles as small and unimpressive.
