Fisker Unveils First Karma Hybrid Fresh from the Assembly Line
Posted By Timon Singh On March 24, 2011 @ 6:12 pm In Green Transportation,Renewable Energy | 1 Comment
Last year we showcased the Karma 1 , a plug-in hybrid that can go from zero to 60 in under six seconds, has a top speed of 120 mph, and offers an average fuel efficiency of 100 mpg. Designed by Henrik Fisker , the man behind Aston Martin’s DB9, V8 Vantage and the BMW Z8, this sexy hybrid has overcome a series of funding and logistical issues, and Fisker rolled out the first working production unit this week!
The Karma 1 has been produced to perfection, and it is expected that production will increase as demand rises. Company spokesman Roger Ormisher  said that they aim to make “over 7,000 deliveries” by year’s end.
While the Chevy Volt and the Nissan Leaf  may be incredibly efficient, they are nowhere near as stunning as this vehicle. As a result, expect demand to rocket when the car goes on general release. There’s only one question: can you afford the $88,000 price tag?
