Fisker Automotive, the creators of the forward thinking Karma range extended hybrid, have finally been purchased. According to a report from Automotive News, Chinese company Wanxiang placed the winning bid for the American company. The final price was $149.2 million.
There is still one legal loophole to jump through before the sale is final. US Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Gross needs to approve. He has scheduled a hearing for tomorrow, so we will know soon.
The auction for the car maker is part of an ongoing bankruptcy struggle that began a few months ago when Fisker was unable to repay its DOE loan it received a few years ago.
The combination of Fikser and Wanxiang makes sense, as the Chinese company owns a battery producer that would allow Karma production to resume with decreased cost.
