Fisker Automotive confirmed that it will increase the price of the 2012 Karma Plug-in Hybrid by 6 percent on Thursday, Dec 15.
The company is raising the price of the base Eco Standard model from $95,900 originally to $102,000, not including a $950 destination and handling charge.
The Eco Sport goes up from $103,900 to $110,000, while the top-of-the-line EcoChic price would rise from $108,900 to $116,000.
The increase will not impact those who have already put down a $5,000 deposit on a Fisker Karma. Deposit holders have until January 15 to finalize their order at the slightly lower price.
When the Karma Plug-in Hybrid was announced in 2008, its projected price was $80,000. Then came numerous delays and a price hike to $87,900. By the time the Karma reached production this year, the base sticker had climbed to $95,900, including shipping.[Source: Fox News]
