The Fisker Karma, expected to be the first plug-in hybrid to hit the streets with a launch date in about one year may use Ener Del’s (HEV) lithium ion batteries if testing works out.  The two companies have signed a letter of intent for a potential long term lithium ion battery supply agreement contingent upon reliability and performance testing.  Fisker plans to build 15K vehicles per year and market them through and existing network of 32 US dealers.  A European network is expected to be announced this September at the Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to team up with Fisker to deliver to market a superior automobile that will establish the benchmark for high-technology green cars,” commented Charles Gassenheimer, chairman and CEO of EnerDel parent company Ener1, Inc. (Nasdaq: HEV). “EnerDel battery packs for electric vehicles (EVs), hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and now plug-in hybrid electrics will help lead the revolution toward mass deployment of electric drive in the United States.”

Will we see this in the next Bond film?
