FISKER KARMA OWNERS CONVERGE IN SANTA MONICA
ANAHEIM, CA – October 30, 2012: Nearly 50 Southern California-area Fisker Karma owners drove their cars to Santa Monica Sunday to share their excitement and appreciation for the award winning Electric Vehicle with extended range (EVer).
Hosted by Fisker Santa Monica, 48 of the very first Karma owners were treated to brunch and open conversation with Executive Chairman Henrik Fisker at the exclusive Jonathan Club Beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Fisker executives Tony Posawatz, CEO, and Alex Klatt, Vice President of Global Design, also attended.
Brunch was followed by a scenic drive on the Pacific Coast Highway and through town to the showroom on Santa Monica Boulevard, where owners were treated to a close up look at Fisker Automotive’s next car, the Fisker Atlantic.

With more than 100 Karmas sold in less than 10 months, Fisker of Santa Monica is one of the highest volume Fisker retailers in the world. Fisker’s global network of more than 70 retailers has sold more than 1,500 Karmas since the car went on sale in December 2011.
“I can’t tell you how thrilling it is to see how excited Karma owners get about their cars and the future of this company,” Henrik Fisker said. “I’ve been in the business a long time and truly have never seen anything like it. It was fantastic to watch all those Karmas make their way through town, knowing they weren’t using a drop of gas.”
Fisker Santa Monica principal Mike Sullivan said, “It was so great for me to show my appreciation for Fisker owners who understand you don’t have to compromise to drive more responsibly. Driving down San Vicente Blvd in a parade of 48 Fiskers in all-electric Stealth mode showed everyone a great example of the automotive future that we are hoping to build together.”

, the leading manufacturer of luxury Electric Vehicles with extended-range (EVer™), today announced that the company’s flagship Karma sedan already surpasses its 2025 fuel economy target under Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards – recently finalized by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Fisker Nederland, Automotive’s most successful European retailer with more than 130 Karmas sold since January 2012, organized a very special event on Sunday, September 2 at the Floriade Horticultural World Expo in Venlo, Netherlands, where 60 240-volt charge points were temporarily installed for the occasion. The Floraide Horticultural World Expo stands for innovation and the sustainable relationship between man and nature, educating the public how to return to nature and how to learn from it.
At the event, Fisker Automotive was a part of two new world records for electric vehicles. Fisker is now first to hold the world record for Highest Number of Single-Brand Electric Vehicles to be Charged Simultaneously, with 45 owners of its Karma Electric Vehicle with extended range (EVerTM) having their cars charged at the same time. Those 45 owners also helped break the world record for Highest Number of Mixed-Brand Electric Vehicles to be Charged Simultaneously. That record now stands at 50 where the previous record was 43, set in May of this year. Both records were confirmed by Stichting E-Laad, the Dutch foundation for the promotion of electric driving.
The successful attempt was part of the first „Good Karma DayÃ¢ÂÂ for Dutch Fisker Karma owners, which was part charity event — for every Karma sold by Fisker Nederland a donation was made to the EugeÃÂne Janssen Foundation to support African children living in dire circumstances – and part social gathering.
”We are excited that as an American car company we have had so many European Karma owners make this world-record attempt a success,” said Bernhard Koehler, Fisker Automotive co-founder. ”They have helped make history and show that electric vehicles with extended range are the future.”
The gathering of so many Fisker Karmas was a sight to see.
