In other news, if you currently own a Fisker – you’re screwed.
Following the news of the purchase of bankrupt manufacturer, Fisker, its new owner – Chinese giant Wanxiang – has good news for all brand enthusiasts: the company says fans can “truly believe” that it will send all previous Fisker concepts into production alongside the existing Karma. For those who were previously mourning the awesome automaker, this means that the Surf wagon, Sunset convertible and Atlantic compact sedan will all appear at some point.
However, the good news for fans doesn’t extend to current owners of previously-made Fisker cars. Wanxiang is putting a very limited warranty-claim submission cap on these $100,000-plus cars, saying it will only accept claims up to $2,000. It also isn’t saying whether or how it plans to manufacture parts or offer service for the existing examples. “We understand if you are an owner and paid good money for your vehicle, $2000 is not what you bargained for or expected,” company officials said. That must be comforting.
