Fisker Says Project Nina Will Enter Production in 2012

Betting on when an upstart company will deliver a car is like wagering on a race between crabs: it all goes backwards sometimes. But Fisker Automotive has managed to put it past setbacks behind it and says its ready to do business, with the Karma range-extended luxury sedan having received its EPA certifications.
Now, attention has been diverted to the second car they promised, the more affordable Project Nina. Recent reports suggested that production will start at the middle of 2013, but Fisker spokesman Roger Ormisher has told The Detroit News that the first examples will roll off the line as early as next year.

These reports don’t contradict each other, as he went on to say that full scale assembly of the car will only start by the middle of 2013, as was previously stated. This has less to do with the Nina itself and more to do with the fact that it will be put together at a defunct GM plant in Delaware, rather than across the ocean in Finland.

The Project Nina is not a car per say, but a family of vehicles based on the same underpinnings. The lineup will likely debut with a mid-size luxury sedan, though a crossover is also expected.

Fisker’s also has a number of other vehicles expected to debut in coming years, like a production version of the Surf shooting brake and even the Sunset convertible. This coupe-convertible is expected to go on sale in 2013 as well.
