Today in Cleantech

So the news this morning is that Fisker is bringing in a new CEO, former Chrysler CEO Tom Lasorda, while Henrik Fisker focuses on design and marketing, probably where he should be, given all the production delays that Fisker has faced. But that’s not the real news. The real news is that Fisker execs are saying that the company has produced 2000 Karmas, shipped 840 and that it will be profitable in 2013 based on the Karma alone. That’s a big deal for a company that has had a very long road to getting its cars on the market. But with Tesla’s Roadster exiting the luxury market as Tesla focuses on its Model S sedan, perhaps there’s a big opening for customers who want an EV that’s fast and sporty.
