Karma News: Rumorpile: A Change of Name for Fisker

Recommended Posts

It has been awhile since we heard anything out of Fisker and its new owner, the Wanxiang Group. But Reuters has learned some new information about what could be in store.

Two sources tell Reuters that Wanxiang is planning to drop the Fisker name and use Elux. So instead of the Fisker Karma, it could be called the Elux Karma.

Speaking of the Karma, Reuters also learned that Wanxiang has pushed back the launch of the Karma to mid-2016 and will raise the price to $135,000. Sources also revealed that the Karma will not be built in Finland and that new production site hasn't been finalized.

At the rate the group is going, they will totally miss the window for 6 digit EV auto's. I doubt they can get a production site, up and running and have product out in mid 2016. At best we will see this in 2017 or later.

It seems like Wanxiang guys are Elon Musk fans - took the first and last syllables of the guy's name and made it cute to EL(on) (M)UX. :)
