FISKER’S FIRST
Karma Hybrid World Debut


Fisker Coachbuild has introduced its forthcoming hybrid sedan called the Karma. The project is a first for the independent automaker and is developed in co-operation with Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies. It was designed from the ground up as a sexy performance sedan and will not be built on an existing platform but rather a brand new architecture. The Q-Drive powertrain technology uses lithiumion batteries sourced from Advanced Lithium Power thus enabling the car to travel 50 miles on battery power alone, before the 4-cylinder engine kicks in to turn the generator and thus make more electricity. Fisker hopes to sell 15,000 vehicles at $80,000 to $100,000 apiece.
