The plan is to restart production of the Karma by mid-2015, which will be followed by a Karma-based Wagon called the Surf in 2016 and then the Atlantic sedan in 2017. The company already has a new website up and running.

The first would be setting up a new headquarters. It will then have to find a new CEO, which could happen in a couple of months time and last, but not the least, it is looking to recruit an engineering staff of 200.
Fisker Karma, the only car which the company ever built, was a hybrid electric sedan powered by a turbo-petrol 2.0-litre engine coupled to two electric motors, with a combined power output of 397 bhp and 1300 Nm of torque. The Karma had range of 80 km in pure electric mode and could reach a top speed of 200 km/h.
