Fisker Karma Racking Up Some Bad Points

Before getting into the fact that Fisker has once again pushed back the production date for the Karma and bumped up the price, I need to say that I hate the name. Fisker was apparently under the very mistaken impression that plug-in hybrid owners need help acting smug. Between this and the Leaf, it is only a matter of time before this trend is followed to its logical conclusion and somebody makes a car called the I'mbetterthanyou.

That said, it is actually quite a good-looking car. It is certainly more appealing than a Prius, although that isn't difficult. The price for this sexy plug-in has now gone up to $95,900 (from $87,900) and Fisker won't start to actually build them until March. This is just a bit behind their original starting date of November 2009. So if you're in the market for some sleek and stylish self-righteousness, you'll just have to be patient. In the meantime, save your money.
