I shared the arrival of #1435 aka Voltaire with my fellow owners and enthusiats last month and wanted to let everyone know, even with Internal and external "headwinds" as Henrik said at our exciting Town Hall, I'm truly in love with my Karma and what it represents to me: innovation, courage, breaking the status quo, incredible design envelope pushing and that the American Dream is still alive and driving is part of it. I'm not sugar coating my Karma...I have cel, rattle in overhead console, disappearing pre-sets, a b pillar garnish that needs re-gluing and a few operational gremlins....I'm also getting to 600 miles and haven't put a drop of gas in.
To me, the Karma has done exactly what it's mission was...create a world class design founded on a marriage between high esthetic and new engineering for a world platform within the luxury touring /sporting class...I don't understand the backlash about the cars price...it was always meant for that segment, and is one of if not the only American Brand to get to that class against the imports. And I say right on. Even on looks alone the car should be applauded and would be a contender in that class...when I factor in a ground up white paper start and the innovation of the power source I find the cars value to be immeasurable.
I love the owning and driving experience, I make small allowances for being an early adopter, but only with the assurance from Fisker that they will remedy and to date, I feel confident that they are truly behind the cars and us as early adopters 100%.
I have other exotics and super luxury cars, many that have Seeped, stalled and left me without technology functions that are twice the price and have tenure in the marketplace, and possibly not as enthusiastic a willingness to address the problems....so far, there's no " perfect" car, but I will tell you I'm perfectly happy with my Karma, if for nothing else the mile wide smile I get every mile....I'm beginning to think that's the grille inspiration...

Could have written that myself, Ross (if Dutch was not my native language). I think many owners share your feelings!

Bedankt! Thanks Dutch.....write away in Dutch for sure....it would be great for we as owners, not pundits, bloggers or fakers, to get our honest stories out there...maybe a gallery of our mpg screens next! Happy touring in your beautiful country on your International Karma!!!

Welcome to you Ross, and thanks for sharing your good experience. I think it is true we often get the "vocal minority" of those with issues that dominate online forums. It is less likely for people to blog, post, or query if they are having zero issues.

You mentioned "maybe a gallery of our mpg screens next". We have a running thread on just that. When you get to 1000 miles, please post a picture with the rest of them here:

I am coming up on 2000 miles, and I know other owners that are more like 3000 miles, so the longer-term experiences will be informative!

I almost teared up reading your description. But then again, it is my birthday and I have been drinking beer so I can cry if I want to. I am with you 100%. I love my Karma and will probably buy the Nina too.

Well said. I have been an enthusiastic supporter of Fisker for many of the same reasons as you mentioned. The promise of advanced technology combined with fantastic aesthetic appeal and excellent driving dynamics makes this car, and this company very special. They have had some challenges when it comes to execution, but I am optimistic that with the new management and renewed focus on quality, the future appears very bright for Fisker.
