Automaker Fisker is finalizing negotiations to sell its plug-in hybrid vehicle Karma in China. The deal will have the vehicle launched in the Chinese market by the middle of next year. Fisker also hinted that it is seeking a “strategic partnership” suggesting that a tie up is a “possibility,” but only if the timing is right.
The manufacturer has delayed the launch of the hybrid sedan in US on numerous occasions. The scheduled US launch is during the beginning of next year. The first factory-built Karma was featured at the Paris Motor Show in early October.
The Karma is powered by Quantum Technologies’ Q-Drive technology, an innovative petrol engine or electric motor combination. It is the first car from Fisker Automotive, a joint venture of Quantum Technologies and Fisker Coachbuild, LLC.
The Karma’s two 201 brake horsepower (204 PS) motors produce 1,300 newton metres (960 ft·lbf) of torque, more than the Bugatti Veyron at 1,250 N·m (920 ft·lbf). The vehicle is priced at $88,000.
