5k but then it is in CAD not the real money
. Jokes aside - I tried out the Karma first and loved it. I had been following the Fisker buzz for a while and I asked my dealer if they were accepting deposits on Nina. It took him over a week to check and get approvals and he finally sent me the forms to fill and sign. That being said they are kind of slow and I am still waiting for my finalized contract to be delivered to me. Yes it is big "leap of Faith" (borrowing the line from Karma owner Leonardo DiCaprio) in Fisker that I put my deposit without even looking at Nina. Looking at Karma and Surf I think Nina will be a beauty!
Other contributing factors:
- Karma being the first gen Ev from Fisker it is going to have it's share of hiccups (case in point the recent battery issue). This will only help Fisker in refining and fine tuning most of the kinks out of their cars in the coming years.
- I do want a Ev Hybrid that is fun to drive and sexy, not the ugly volt's, leafs and priuses that we have today.
- The idea of an all battery powered car like tesla makes me nervous.
- My daily round-trip commute to work is less than 30 miles in rush hour traffic and with a Ev Hybrid I can survive months on just charging the battery. Gas is a bonus for the extended range without the worry of getting stuck in the boonies.
I would like to have the Nina soon but do not mind waiting for the next 2-3 years for them to work out all the kinks. Until then I am looking at getting the Fiat Abarth as my 2nd car for daily commute to work. That's my plan anyway....
