I saw a Fisker on the highway recently, and an ad popped up for one today.  The 2017 sports model starts at $130,000 and looks absolutely wonderful.  Wonderful advertising, shows a lot of quality prep.

 

The range extended means it has an electric motor and battery, but most propulsion is by means of a conventional gasoline engine. I think they're trying to avoid the term "hybrid".

I thought they went bankrupt.


I didn't tip at Per Se either.

I believe they did, although the Fisker dealership in West Palm has been there all along.  The dealership also sells McLaren and Lotus vehicles

 

Wikipedia says Fisker Karma rose from the dead...

 

 

In February 2014, the company's designs, engineering and manufacturing facility were purchased by Chinese auto parts conglomerate Wanxiang Group. Henrik Fisker retained the Fisker trademarks and the Fisker brand and relaunched Fisker Inc, and so Wanxiang named its new company Karma Automotive.[11]
