Fisker Karma is said to be the world first true electric luxury vehicle with extended range (EVer). Karma is a four seater and four door that focus on high performance, elegant and eco-friendly drive. Unveiled in 2008, the 2012 Fisker Karma is actually now in production with a price tag of $95,900 before the $7,500 federal EV tax credit.

The Karma actually is a plug-in hybrid, but the 22 kWh lithium ion battery alone will allow the driver to travel more than 80km. Pairing both the electric motor with the 250hp four-cylinder turbochaarger engine 2.0-liter would result in a total of 403hp and 901 ft-lb of torque. There is two mode of driving Stealth Mode and Sport Mode. Stealth Mode is to acheive the most efficient drive that is claim to provide a total range of up to 80km. Whereby the Sport Mode engage both engine to provide a exhilarating driving experience.

Charging time is between 6 hours and 14 hours depending on 110v, 220v or 240v current. It also uses Regenerative Braking like most other hybrid and also a solar glass roof that would provide an extend driving range of additional 322 km annually.
