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.
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.
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.
