Just as the Karma begins to enter showrooms, Fisker is raring to get a move on its Project Nina. However, despite the optimism, it hasn’t been smooth sailing for Fisker. Although it was initially intended for the $50,000 Nina hybrid to be completed by 2012, circumstances require the product’s launch to be pushed back a year to mid-2013.

Quite a lofty bar has been set as Fisker’s team of 120 personnel expands another 2,500 workers to operate a made-for-Nina manufacturing plant in Delaware. While humble sales numbers are expected for the Fisker Karma, company fonder and CEO Henrik Fisker intends for Project Nina to reach a production volume of 100,000 cars per year.

Earlier, CEO Henrik Fisker announced that Nina will be a competitively priced smaller hybrid sedan, receiving 2.0 liter supercharged TwinPower engines supplied by BMW.

    As 2013 comes into view, note that the old GM Boxwood plant in Newport, DE (intended to be the assembly plant) is still padlocked with weeds growing in the parking lot! By now, if the Fisker myth is to have ANY credibility, plant renovations should be underway, no? As to the 2,500 Fisker employees to be hired for Delaware ... the number thus far would comfortably fit around a table for (4)! Fisker .. and the $550 million "loan" ... is yet another great example of US taxpayer money thrown away ... want a Fiskedr? Order one in Finland .. become their 3rd buyer! Fisker ... What a joke (a bad one at that)!
