Benefits of Driving a 2012 Fisker Karma Sedan

The Karma competes with full-sized luxury sedans and coupes from manufacturers like Mercedes-Benz and BMW with a price point of around $100,000. Its stand-out styling immediately makes a strong case for the car, but it's the eco-friendliness of the vehicle that really sets it apart from its rivals. Going beyond just a hybrid drivetrain, Fisker have done everything they can to ensure that the Karma has a minimal impact on the environment. Unlike most other hybrids and in accordance with its styling, the Karma has a fun side as well. Performance is good and handling was made a priority in its design. Starting a new car company is no easy task and Fisker has done their best to ensure that their first product is a strong one.

What's new for 2012?

The brand new Fisker Karma is a full-sized luxury sedan with a trick hybrid drivetrain. Stunningly beautiful, the Karma manages to look like a sports car while still seating four people in comfort. The hybrid drivetrain allows the Karma to operate as an electric vehicle, complete with plug-in recharge system. If the driver chooses, an onboard gasoline engine can also be utilized to recharge the batteries and keep the Karma moving in much the same manner as a traditional hybrid.

Model Strengths

  • Beautiful to look at
  • environmentally friendly
  • luxurious and quick

Model Review

The Karma's unique drivetrain comprises a turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder to generate power for the car's two electric motors which combine to produce 403 horsepower. But electric motors are known for their strong torque output and the Karma doesn't disappoint, producing 959 foot-pounds of it at zero RPM. The car can run in either 'stealth' or 'sport' mode, the former using just the electric motors and the latter utilizing the gasoline engine to keep the batteries charged. For short journeys the Karma can simply be left in stealth mode and recharged at home with a standard 110 volt outlet.

Original Warranty  help
Original Warranty
An original warranty is the warranty associated with a vehicle when it is brand new. In addition to the original warranty, select items, like tires, are typically covered by respective manufacturers. Also, an act of Federal law sometimes provides protection for certain components, like emissions equipment.
The original warranty is often broken down into multiple sections, including:
Basic Warranty:
Typically covers everything except for parts that wear out through normal use of the vehicle. Examples of non-covered items are brake pads, wiper blades and filters.
Drivetrain Warranty:
This warranty covers items the basic warranty does not protect. Wear and tear items such as hoses will not be covered, but key items like the engine, transmission, drive axles and driveshaft often will be.
Roadside Assistance:
The level of service differs greatly with this warranty, but many manufacturers offer a toll-free number that helps provide assistance in case you run out of gas, get a flat tire or lock your keys in the car.
Corrosion Warranty:
This warranty focuses on protecting you from holes caused by rust or corrosion in your vehicle's sheet metal.
Please check the owner's manual, visit a local dealership or look at the manufacturer's website to learn more about the specifics of the warranties that apply to a vehicle.

Basic 4 Years/50,000 Miles
Drivetrain 4 Years/50,000 Miles
Corrosion 6 Years/Unlimited Miles
Roadside Assistance 4 Years/50,000 Miles
