I will be seeing the Karma on May 20th in Maryland. Can't wait to finally see it in person.

I live in the DC metro area and have choice of going to either the May 20th event at Capital Cadillac in Greenbelt, MD or the May 21st event at Ted Britt Ford in Chantilly, VA. I may go to both to see where I should buy the car from. I got a call from Fisker asking which dealership they should send my paperwork to.

At the moment only 3 hrs in the evening (5-8pm on the 21st) set up for the show in Fairfax VA. Given the beltway mess, this not very good for those of us who live in MD (Ugh burn lots of gas and spend over an hour and a half in the commute just to get there), or who have kids in school. Why not the whole day or at least an afternoon and evening?

Is it in Fairfax and not Chantilly?[hr]
I just spoke to Ray Britt who is handling the event at Ted Britt Ford in Fairfax, VA. The car will be on display from 2P - 8P and he is planning an informal reception from 5P - 7P.

I saw the car in person today at Ted Britt Ford in Fairfax, VA. I will post pictures soon, but first impressions are:

1. The car is beautiful!!!
2. Interior and trunk spaces are very small considering the outer dimensions of the car. The batteries and the low roof line take up a lot of interior space. It's probably smaller inside than a Honda Civic.
3. Tires and wheels are huge. I don't think the wheels will last 1 week in the National Capital region without being dented.
4. Ray Britt is a very nice guy and very enthusiastic about the car.:)

From what I have heard some have been invite only and some have been open to the public. I just called the dealer here in Maryland and told them I was interested in the Karma and they sent me an invitation which had the times.[hr]

Xradman - Thats some good informtion. If they really are putting 20 inch or larger wheels on the production car I have to agree with you that they will get torn up on the roads in MD/VA/DC. Also interesting to hear that the interior is really that small. Did they give you any idea on when people might start taking deliveries? I have heard everything from late 2010 to early 2011.

Manufacturing is supposed to start in the 4th quarter this year. Those that are on the preorder list should get their cars 1st quarter 2011 and those that are not on the list are likely to take deliveries 2nd quarter 2011. All dealers are to sell their cars at MSRP with no dealer markup. The warranty is equivalent to BMW at 4 years 50,000 miles with scheduled maintenance included and batteries are warrantied for 10 years. There is also supposed to be 24hour road side assistance included (I don't know for how long).
