Fisker Surf Launching at Paris Auto Show

2013 Fisker Surf
Pricing hasn't been released for the Surf yet, but many expect that it will be priced higher than the Karma
Fisker Automotive plans on showing off its production version of the
2013 Fisker Surf
shooting brake this September at the Paris Motor Show.
Fisker was a little behind in getting its $100,000 2012 Karma plug-in hybrid out to customers, which resulted in
the loss of its Department of Energy (DOE) loan
last May. But now that the Karma is complete and on its way to customers, Fisker is on a roll and ready to continue pumping out more hybrids.
Last September, Fisker revealed its Surf shooting brake concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show. The Surf resembles
with four seats and a lithium-ion battery pack in the central tunnel in the middle of the car, but differs when it comes to looks.
The Surf Concept extends the Karma's roofline straight back and has a hatchback-like rear end. Its electronics are tucked in a hump behind the back seats, but the rear seats can still fold down.
A Fisker executive has said that the Surf, which was compared to Ferrari's FF, will be similar to the FF but with four doors and one-third of the price.
Pricing hasn't been released for the Surf yet, but many expect that it will be priced higher than the Karma.
In addition to the Karma and Surf, Fisker is also working on its Nina midsize sedan. It's currently looking to order tooling for the Nina at the Delaware factory, which recently
experienced 26 layoffs
after the lost DOE loan, for $336 million. The Nina has finished the development phase and there is currently a running prototype.
