Tom Lasorda on production numbers, profitability and the DOE loan
Fisker is planning for the possibility it won’t be able to access the remaining U.S. loan funds and will be successful solely based on Karma sales, LaSorda said.
“Can we make this a sustainable business? The answer is yes,” he said. “In 2013 we’ll be profitable, just with the Karma by itself.”
Fisker Automotive has produced about 2,000 Karmas. Of that figure, 840 have been delivered to dealers in the U.S. and Canada, LaSorda said.
The Energy Department may permit Fisker Automotive to resume drawing loans funds as “they see us deliver the monthly numbers,” LaSorda said. “We have a new business plan and we’re getting strong support from our financial partners.”
