Fisker has established their timeline for delivering the Karma plug-in hybrid to customers. Originally, the company planned to start production sometime in 2009, but didn't have a set delivery window, but now they've set a schedule to begin production at the end of the year and start delivering the cars in May or June 2010.
That is, of course, if you've already gotten your name on the reservation list. Those that order now will have to wait until late summer 2010 to get theirs.
It will be interesting to see if the Fisker Karma takes any customers away from the Tesla. Both are luxury brands, but the Karma costs less than the Roadster and is making it to market ahead of the Model S. So, will it be healthy competition, or will there only be room for one luxury EV at a time? Regardless, it looks as though 2010 really is shaping up to be the year of the EV. Almost all of the major automakers have new hybrid or all-electric models coming out within the year. Let's hope that they're welcomed as a surge of new and better choices by consumers.
