Over the last few years, I've followed pricing for the Fisker Karma, as I've been curious to see how they're losing value. I'm actually surprised to see that they held their value pretty well -- better than many other "orphan brand" vehicles, likely due to their advanced powertrain and desirable, interesting design.

But they're starting to get cheaper and cheaper, and now they're starting to poke under $30,000. This particular 2012 Fisker Karma is currently listed for sale on Autotrader for just $27,492, making it the cheapest Fisker Karma in the country -- and not an all-around bad deal when you consider what you're getting.

So what exactly are you getting? Well, the Fisker Karma was a plug-in hybrid sedan that was sold in the early bit of the 2010s, using a General Motors 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder mated to electric powertrains. The Karma could go around 40 miles on electric power alone before the gasoline engine kicked in, which wasn't (and still isn't) so bad. The real benefit, however, was the styling, which made the Karma look like a concept car for the road -- far more expressive than the Tesla Model S that was debuting around the same time.

Although Fisker went out of business, the Karma is still a desirable car, largely due to that expressive styling -- and it still looks fresh, modern and cool, even today. If you're looking to pick up a rather special plug-in hybrid at an increasingly affordable price, the Karma may be for you -- and specifically this one, as it's the most affordable of all.
