If only every future electric car looked as cool as the Fisker Karma and, at the same time, was affordable to the regular slob on the street. Sadly, not yet. But if you can afford a luxury car, this is a hell of a luxury car at $80,000.
Like the upcoming Chevrolet Volt, the Fisker Karma is a plug-in hybrid, or extended-range electric vehicle. It sports a pair of electric motors that crank 403 horsepower and 959 lb-ft of torque. This beauty goes 50 miles on a full charge before the on board General Motors-sourced 2.0-liter turbocharged engine kicks in. This powers the generator, allowing another 300 miles. And if it’s power you’re looking for, the Karma can reach 60 mph in about six seconds. So help the environment, and drive something sharp while doing it.
