Fisker to Unveil Third Karma Variant in Frankfurt

Fisker Automotive founder Henrik Fisker with his plug-in hybrid, the $87,900 Karma.

With sales of the new Karma battery car unofficially underway, California battery-car start Fisker Automotive will roll out an additional variant of the costly commuter car at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show.

The sleek combination of a sports car and a plug-in hybrid commuter car is initially being offered in hardtop form, with a convertible version soon to be added to the line.  A third body style, which sources say could be “loosely described” as a crossover vehicle, will follow.

“It is a new variant and we will be showing it at Frankfurt,” Fisker spokesman Roger Ormischer confirmed to, though he declined to provide more specific details beyond noting, “We will be putting it on sale next year.”
