CHICAGO The new Fisker Karma warranty covers only a maximum of $2,000 per vehicle, according to the new owners of the company.

"We understand if you are an owner and paid good money for your vehicle, $2,000 is not what you bargained for or expected," said The New Fisker in a posting on the company's recently launched Web site. "We are already hard at work discussing ways that we can make this a better experience for all current Fisker owners and hope to bring better news to each owner in the near future."

In effect, the warranty covers about 2 percent of the value of the Fisker Karma, which sold for roughly $100,000.

Despite the gloomy warranty news for current owners, Fisker's new owners paint a rosy picture of the future.

Chinese owner Wanxiang said in a statement on the Web site that it believes "we can launch the (Fisker) Atlantic, Surf and Sunset in the future."

"The Karma platform allows The New Fisker to develop a lot of variations to address our customers' desires," it said. "With the Atlantic platform we expect the same ability to create different models to address our customers' wants and desires."

While remaining vague on details, the Web site assures consumers that the company intends "to restart production of the Karma as fast as possible."

The company hints that production could be restarted at a former GM plant in Delaware.

"One of the assets acquired was a plant located in Delaware," the Web site said. "We are diligently assessing the viability of utilizing that plant as it was originally intended."

Edmunds says: Current owners of the Fisker Karma may want to keep tabs on the new Web site to find out if there is indeed "better news" coming about the car's warranty.
