Fisker Reviews


Known as the man behind such automotive masterpieces as the BMW Z8 and Aston Martin DB9 and V8 Vantage, Henrik Fisker first ventured out on his own with the intent of making hand-built, bespoke versions of Mercedes-Benz and BMW sports cars. In 2007, Fisker and business partner Bernhard Koehler teamed with Quantum Technologies for the creation of the Fisker Karma, a high-powered plug-in hybrid sedan that combines the Danish designer's keen aesthetic eye and penchant for performance with innovative lithium-ion battery technology.

After going through a bankruptcy that halted production as of March, 2013, both the Fisker company and Fisker's battery supplier, A123, now belong to Chinese billionaire Lu Guanqiu, who has vowed to build a global electric car business or go bankrupt himself.

This unique hybrid sports car delivers high-performance fun with a low environmental impact. A true head-turner with a celebrity clientele, the Fisker Karma is a welcome alternative to the current class of gas-guzzlers that populate the luxury car segment.
