Los Angeles Nov 28 Fisker Automotive, the maker
of the $100,000-plus Karma plug-in hybrid, aims to launch
operations in China in the first quarter, company executives
said during an interview on Wednesday.
"We still aren't in all the markets where we want to be,"
said Henrik Fisker, the company founder and executive chairman.
"We have just launched in the Middle East, which we see a
lot of interest and potential sales there, and then we are going
to go into China next year," Fisker added during an interview on
the sidelines of the Los Angeles Auto Show.
Currently about two-thirds of Karma sales are in the United
States with the rest in Europe, said Chief Executive Tony
Posawatz, who joined Fisker this year after working on General
Motors Co's Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid for six years.
