Fisker Karma Hybrid Luxury Sedan
Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide and Fisker Coachbuild Anuta were forming a partnership to build up Fisker Automotive, an American brand of “green” cars that will produce a range of premium cars friendly to nature.In a true Tour de Force, Henrik Fisker created a hybrid vehicle like no other on the road today and for some times to come, the Fisker Karma. In competing with the new Porsche Panamera, Mercedes-Benz CLS, and other new breed of performance oriented sedan, Fisker knew his budding new company need to make a bold statement.
Ensued for this was the Fisker Karma, a 4-door luxury sedan with the soul of a coupe that he designed not so long ago.Fisker Karma is an electric vehicle with extended range capacity. While it does have a 260-horsepower, 2-liter turbocharged conventional engine, which its main purpose is to recharge the lithium-ion battery bank or power a 175 kW generator. It even has a roll of solar panel on its roof and plug-in outlet to charge it. Karma is actually run by 2 electric motors rated at 403-horsepower.
