Fisker announced today that it has secured its Series C financing round with a new investor, Qatar Investment Authority.
That means Fisker will be getting $65 million to support the production of the Fisker Karma.
The Karma will enter production early next year with deliveries to begin in the 4th quarter of 2009. If you don’t know by now, the Karma is the premium plug-in four-door sports car that we saw at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show.
Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide is taking care of the hybrid system used in the car. It is capable of 50 miles on electric power alone with a 0-60 time of less than 6 seconds. It will have a total range of 300 miles. Fisker plans on building 15,000 units of the Karma annually.
