Too bad they can't make an all gasoline version.
They can, but then they would be an unknown tiny company making tiny numbers of an unremarkable car and making far less profit from each sale because they wouldn`t be able to add a massive "greeness" premium to the price...and people would buy established marques instead for some combination of status, proven reliability and servicing. It`s extremely hard for any small car maker to do business in anything other than a niche market that they can specialise in and excel at (e.g. Caterham and road-legal track cars, and they`re now part of a huge Malaysian company anyway).

There have been countless reports of these cars breaking down with next to no mileage on them.
Fisker have been forced to recall some of them. They won't say how many they`ve sold, but they have to say how many they`ve recalled. It might be all of the ones they`ve sold, it might not.
On the plus side, they have traced the problem that appears to be causing almost all of the failures. It`s a design fault with the cooling system, apparently. Fixable, but it requires parts to be replaced.

His Karma was run over by his dogma... Shouldn't it be Karma running over dogma? [quote]LMAO, the fact the name has "Karma" in it, and it broke down on the spoiled brat. Some small scale universal justice has been served this day.[/quote] That isn`t his car, it`s just the same kind.
