Fisker Karma on sale next year
It will cost around £80,000 and initially it will be sold through one London dealer.
However company boss Henrik Fisker admitted that the Karma will only be left-hand drive and there are no plans for a right-hand-drive version – at least in this generation.
'The first right-hand-drive Fisker will be the new Atlantic,' Fisker admitted to What Car?
The all-new Atlantic will be smaller and cheaper than the Karma - similar in size to a BMW 3 Series - and is expected to go on sale in 2014.
Unlike the Karma, which uses a GM-sourced engine, the Fisker Atlantic will be powered by a BMW four-cylinder petrol engine, allied to a new generation of Vauxhall Ampera-style electric range-extender technology.
The new Atlantic saloon is also expected to spawn a family of Fiskers, which may include an SUV and an estate version, according to insiders.
Fisker revealed that he is unlikely to produce a 1 Series or Audi A3 rival in the near future, though.
'If we make a car smaller than the Atlantic we would need a strategic partner to share a platform with and that is unlikely for at least the next five or six years,' he said.
