Earlier this decade, Henrik Fisker launched the world’s first premium, range-extended plug-in-electric, luxury sports sedan.
To put that jumble of words into something a little more understandable, Fisker’s company created a plug-in hybrid luxury car called the Karma.
Fisker, a car designer credited with the likes of the BMW Z8, Aston Martin V8 Vantage, and Aston Martin DB9, launched the Karma in 2011, but was bankrupt by 2014. The company’s remains were purchased by a Chinese investment group with plans to resurrect the Karma as a purely electric vehicle.
Included in the sale was the Fisker brand, so we all assumed Mr. Fisker’s days of car-company ownership were behind him.
Not so fast.
