Fisker Production Halted for Over 6 Months

Production of the Fisker Karma luxury plug-in hybrid has been on hold for longer than six months, but the brand says its supply is still sufficient. 

Production initially halted, according to Fisker, for Scandinavian summer break from mid-July to mid-August. The automaker’s management wanted to renegotiate their contract and battery maker A123 went bankrupt in the interim.

The brand says it conserved its battery supply and estimates that it has a supply – roughly 1,900 as of August – sufficient through the first quarter of 2013 and is hoping to renegotiate its battery supply with Wangxiang, the company’s new owner, soon.

Problems and controversy plagued Fisker last year after some of its cars caught fire and many were lost in transit to dealers during Hurricane Sandy.
