Fisker Automobile appeared thanks to Henrik Fisker which declared opening of the company in 2007. Mister Fisker made the name as the leading designer of Aston Martin, and then after an exit from among owners of Ford, it founded own automobile firm at the beginning of 2005. Versions of the changed bodies of BMW 6-Series Coupe and Mercedes-Benz SL 55 AMG became its first cars.
By 2007 the company under the name Quantum Technologies developed an expanded number of electrocars for military application which they also wanted to enter for civil service. Fisker improved design of the car which we know now how Karma which had no transmission. It was the marriage concluded in heavens and so in September, 2007 Fisker Automotive "was born".
At the beginning of the business the company had to submit to attention of the whole world the concept of a four-door sedan of Karma, and they made it in January, 2008 in car showroom of Detroit, in only four months after creation of the automobile company. But in 2008 there came automobile crisis in America when the Big three had to accept the state support. Fisker used a situation and opened the second plant in Detroit.
Originally the company expected to sell Karma in 2009 as the model of 2010 was shown at the beginning of 2009 in Detroit. But the company repeatedly postponed registration of ecological certification and therefore deliveries began only in October, 2011 in the USA.
The future prepared many good moments for Fisker, including Karma S cabriolet with a folding rigid roof, and Surf a shuting-break. Cars which will be constructed on the basis of smaller and more available Project NINA platform are also noteworthy. They will include a sedan of Atlantic and, perhaps, a compartment or the crossover.1 - 8
