The now Chinese-owned Fisker plans to re-launch the Karma luxury saloon in 2015.
Chinese auto parts firm The Wanxiang Corporation saved Fisker from bankruptcy earlier this year in a deal worth around £88 million. Now, the backing of the firm is said to have spurred Fisker to relaunch the Karma mid-way through next year.
A second version of the Karma, based on an estate, could come to market in 2016, as well as a new entry-level model in 2017, dubbed the Atlantic. Originally shown in concept form in new New York in 2012, the Atlantic would be a pure-electric rival to the likes of the BMW 5-series, and would cost around £40,000, significantly less than the £80,000 Karma.
Speaking to an American newspaper, Fisker president Roger Brown said: "Wanxiang is not flashy. They bought this company, they paid cash for it, they don't put any debt on their company and they execute".
However, the new Karma may not be launched under the Fisker title as Brown is unsure whether the company can keep its previous name, but noted that "the cars are the rock stars".
