Fisker Raising Karma Price to $95,900
However, it all sounded too good to be true, and it is. Fisker seems to have underestimated the production costs, as they are now raising the starting price for the Karma. The final price, without any options, will be $95,900 (€73,100). If you want to go for the Sport model, you’ll have to pay another $8,000 (€6,050), and $5,000 (€3,780) more to get the Chic trim.
"With a starting price of $95,900 the Karma is hands down the best value combination of style, performance, efficiency, luxury, sustainability and exclusive powertrain technology," according to company spokesman Russell Datz.
Actually, with a MSRP of $95,900 in America, the Karma is within 10% of the MSRP announced last year of $87,900 (€66,710). When the concept was originally introduced at the 2008 North American International Auto Show, it was given a pricetag of $80,000 (€60,715). This was later bumped up and the original figure was dubbed "an estimated price range."
Because it is an all-electric car, the Karma is eligible for a $7,500 (€5,700) Federal tax credit. “Also, there is additional value added in design and equipment improvements such as the now-standard integrated solar roof panel, which would have been a $ 5,000 option,” the company stated.
