Fisker Karma to be made in
The Fisker Karma plug-in hybrid sports sedan, which is planned for late 2009 and should have an all-electric range of about 50 miles on lithium-ion batteries, will be made in Finland by Valmet Automotive:
"The first cars will be delivered in the 4th quarter of 2009 in North America with planned delivery to Europe in 2010. Fisker Automotive's annual production is projected to reach 15,000 cars."Valmet is also known as the second source for Porsche to assemble its Boxter model.
The Karma is anticipated to sell for US$ 80,000. Top speed should be 125 mph (201 km/h) and 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) should be reached in 5.8 seconds.
We previously reported on some controversy when Tesla Motors sued Fisker.
*You learn something every day. Thanks to commenter "Finnish" for pointing out that Finland is not part of Scandinavia.
