When Karma goes looking for BMW, it means Tesla is about to face even more competition. Karma, formerly known as Fisker, has teamed up with BMW for hybrid power engines, as it is looking to launch the Elux, the company's newest flagship model.
A Chinese company now owns karma and it wants to re-enter the automotive market using engines made by BMW. The Karma Elux will be the company's flagship model, trying to compete with Tesla and other high-end carmakers.
With the help of BMW, Karma will launch the Elux in 2016. The Fisker Karma was the company's first automobile and was launched in 2008, during the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The car was launched with a hybrid electric powertrain that produces 201bhp and 1300Nm of torque.
The car could manage a top speed of 200km/h and could accelerate from a standstill to 100km/h in 6.3 seconds.
