Fisker's future in the automotive industry is still uncertain after the electric vehicle company failed to find new resources to resume production of its plug-in hybrid Karma for more than six months.

Executive Chairman Henrik Fisker said the government-backed California-based automaker is "trying to figure out when they are going to resume" production of the Karma and that he hopes this will happen "soon".

Present at the Chicago Auto Show, Henrik Fisker declined to say if Chinese companies are interested in investing in his company, but once again mentioned he wants to launch sales of the Karma in China in May, two months later than planned.

Fisker Automotive hasn't built a vehicle in more than six months due to financial constraints as well as battery supplier A123's bankruptcy. Sold to a Chinese company, A123 is reportedly not ready yet to start producing of batteries for Fisker again.

Fisker sold more than 3,000 vehicles worldwide since debuting the Karma, but over 2,000 were subjected to recalls in 2012.
