Henrik Fisker designed some of the best looking cars of the past few decades (The Aston Martin DB9 and BMW Z8, for example). So when he started his own car company it was clear the cars would be design focused.
The “Karma” is the first car from the company, and it’s intended be the first of many models. But starting a successful car company is an incredibly expensive and difficult endeavor and Fisker has encountered many problems along the way.
Since we made this review, Henrik Fisker has left his namesake company, and large percentage of the employees have been let go. Under a new board, the company is searching for financial partners or a new owner in order to survive. Things are uncertain at best.
No matter what might happen to Fisker in the future, we were fascinated to try this car in the real world. It shares the same drive-train idea as the Chevy Volt, but costs upwards of $100,000. We figured some time in both neighborhoods and tight canyons would see if the attractive Karma is all style and no substance.
