Fisker Karma plug-in hybrid gets price bump, still not available

Are you one of those high-rolling environmentalists who decided to pre-order a shiny new Fisker Karma plug-in hybrid? Well, you’re about to get hit with a double-whack of bad news. First, the car’s base price just got higher. Second, you still can’t have one.

The kindly gents at Fisker have decided to increase the base price on the Karma plug-in hybrid to a cool $95,900. Compare that to the original $80,000 MSRP we saw two years ago, prior to the additional $7,000 increase that followed shortly thereafter. In addition to that $95,900 base price, you’re still on the hook for the usual taxes, as well as a $950 destination fee.

The good news, if you can even call it that, is that the Fisker Karma qualifies for $7,500 in federal tax incentives. That said, people who pre-ordered the car two years ago probably already knew about these incentives.

There’s still no definite ship date, so you’ll still have sit idly by to wait for the car with the solar roof panel. That, or you can go out and try to get yourself a Tesla Roadster… or maybe just a Volt. The latter option is cheaper by a fair margin, but it’s just not as sexy.

  1. A double-whack of bad news? For more than a year now Fisker has been communicating that deliveries to customers will start in March 2011. That has not changed. Production will start in less than 2 months time, on Feb 21, with first deliveries in March.
