It has been some time when we last heard of the coming of the Fisker Karma hybrid car but now it seems the said hybrid vehicle has started shipping. And while the hybrid does carry a hefty price tag of $100,000 US, only the celebrities are perhaps the best bet to get one and start the publicity this luxury hybrid car is aching to get.
First on the list is environmentalist Leonardo Di Caprio. The hybrid car is said to be on its way where the likes of Al Gore and Colin Powell are lined up to receive theirs too. Production for the Fisker Karma hybrid started March 21 and around five cars a week are said to be produced.
But come November, car production is said to rise to 300 per week. There are already 3,000 pre-orders placed for the said hybrid which will also unveil a shooting-brake and a convertible version. A lower-cost $50k USD hybrid vehicle from Fisker is also in the works, to be made in the same three bodystyle variations and called “Project Nina.”
