Fisker's chief marketing officer Jim Taylor has announced production of the Karma will be restarted by mid-2016.
As previously mentioned, assembly will take place at a new 556,000-square-foot manufacturing facility in Moreno Valley, California where they currently have 200 employees, but the plan is to add an extra 150 workers necessary to kick off production. They are aiming to commence assembly by the middle of next year, but details about the car itself are scarce at the moment.
According to The Orange County Register, Fisker has about 150 unsold Karmas which will be re-purposed as test platforms by the engineering team. The cars will receive a new software while the batteries are going to be supplied by A123 Systems, a company also owned by Fisker's parent Wanxiang. From what we know so far, it will continue to be an extended-range plug-in hybrid with a design very close to the defunct model.
