The plug-in hybrid automaker formerly known as Fisker Automotive and which is now called Karma Automotive will collaborate in the near future with BMW. As thus the small automaker will borrow some of BMW’s electric drive and charging technologies.
It is believed that BMW will supply both its battery charging system and electric-drive technology to the Karma's relaunched plug-in hybrid sedan. With this deal, Karma will be able to dramatically reduce development costs while also slashing development time for the car.
Originally, the Fisker Karma combined a petrol four-cylinder engine from General Motors with an electric motor. However, that engine is no longer being produced so the automaker is still deciding on what internal combustion engine to use with the car. Karma Automotive not only relaunching its sedan, but is also developing a number of other models including an all-electric vehicle.
