Speaking at his Lakes district villa where he received the keys to the brand new Karma, proud owner Robert Norton from Ireland said: “As a long-time environmental advocate, I am thrilled to be driving the Fisker Karma which I believe represents the future of transportation.” The 41-year-old real estate professional added, “The Karma is not only environmentally friendly but it looks stunning as well.”
The Fisker Karma sedan has already picked a number of global awards in its debut sales year, including Top Gear’s Luxury Car of the Year, Automobile’s Design of the Year Award, listing in TIME Magazine’s Top 50 Innovations of 2012, a Global Green Design Award, and Swiss magazine Schweizer Illustrierte named Karma Most Stylish Car of 2012.
In October this year, the Fisker Karma won the Transportation Category at the prestigious Fast Company Magazine ‘Innovation by Design’ Awards ceremony finishing ahead of competitors including the Boeing 787 airliner, the Faraday Bike and Ford’s Fusion. The Karma was also awarded a coveted Auto Bild Magazine “Golden Steering Wheel Award” as “Classic Car of the Future” – limousine category – voted for by readers of this highly respected publication.
Colin Cordery, Managing Director, Trading Enterprises said: “We are extremely proud to have delivered the first GCC approved Fisker Karma in the region. The luxury sports sedan is a technologically advanced vehicle which delivers uncompromised, responsible luxury to its owners. I am sure Robert will be thrilled with the performance of his new Karma.”
Trading Enterprises will distribute Fisker automobiles exclusively in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain, Egypt and the Levant. The region’s first Fisker showroom which will be located at Dubai Festival City’s automotive park is expected to open in the near future.
