Η αναβίωση της Fisker αποκτά σιγά-σιγά σάρκα και οστά, με την Fisker Automotive να ανακοινώσει πως σε συνεργασία με την Technology Group (FATG) θα κατασκευάζουν τα νέα Karma, στις νέες εγκαταστάσεις παραγωγής που θα δημιουργήσουν στο Moreno Valley, κοντά στην έδρα της εταιρίας στην περιοχή Costa Mesa της Καλιφόρνια των Η.Π.Α. Η FATG θα κατασκευάζει τα νέα Karma και από εκεί θα εξάγονται σε όλο τον κόσμο, με την εταιρία να δηλώνει πως θα δημιουργήσει 150 θέσεις εργασίας.


Να θυμίσω, πως η Fisker πλέον ανήκει στη κινέζικη Wanxiang, με την Φιλανδική Valmet να έχει αποσυναρμολογήσει τη γραμμή παραγωγής που κατασκεύαζε το Karma. Έτσι, η παραγωγή του πολυτελούς plu-in υβριδικού μοντέλου θα γίνεται αποκλειστικά στις Η.Π.Α.
