The planned relaunch of the Fisker Karma range-extended electric luxury sedan isn't likely to happen until at least the middle of next year.
And when it does happen, new owner Wanxiang will probably sell the car under a new brand name: Elux.
But we may learn more detail about the phoenix-like resurrection of the sleek, stunning, plug-in four-door as early as this month.
That's the implication, at least, that's conveyed by the splash screen (and sole page) on The New Fisker, a site set up last year to provide details on the relaunch.
The headline is "Introducing | April 2015," and scrolling down the page reveals a Karma-like shape photographed from above.

A pattern on the car's roof appears to show solar panels--the Karma's roof was covered in photovoltaic solar cells--and scrolling down the page switches on the car's headlights, a nice touch.
The text says only: "It's On | Luxury Energized | Energy Optimized | Introducing | April 2015."

Wanxiang has reportedly had to sink "millions" into updating the Karma, which suffered from numerous quality flaws in the year or so that new cars were produced in Finland by contract assembler Valmet.
The Karma was first unveiled in January 2008 at the Detroit Auto Show, and it finally struggled into production as a 2012 model before production halted in the middle of that year.

The company's new owner, Wanxiang, bought lithium-ion cell supplier A123 Systems out of bankruptcy as well last year.
It must fix "about 250 bugs" on the Karma design it acquired before the sleek electric sedan could be put back into production, according to founder and chairman Lu Guanqiu and Wanxiang America president Pin Ni
The company's first order of business is to get the Karma back into production.
It will also need to resurrect its dealer networks around the world. Many U.S. Fisker dealers quietly folded up shop after production of cars and parts stopped, leaving owners to seek out the few remaining service points.
Whether the New Fisker teaser ends up offering actual plans and specifications remains to be seen--but it's clear the Fisker Karma isn't dead yet.
