2012 Fisker Karma ReviewThis car review is specific to this model, not the actual vehicle for sale.
The 2012 Fisker Karma is a four-door, four seat plug-in hybrid electric luxury sedan. For up to 50 miles, the vehicle drives gas- and tailpipe-emissions-free using electricity stored in its lithium-ion battery. When the Karma's battery runs low, a gas-powered, engine/generator seamlessly operates to extend the driving range another 250 miles on a full tank. In addition to its reduced-emission propulsion system, the Karma features a variety of environmentally-conscious and sustainable materials. The Fisker Karma's Q-Drive system includes dual 150 kW electric traction motors mounted to a differential between the rear wheels that deliver a combined 403 hp (300kW) and a peak torque rating of 981 lb-ft at zero rpm; a 20kWh lithium-ion battery; and a 260-horsepower turbocharged direct-injected 2.0-liter gasoline range extender that generates electricity. The battery can be charged with a standard household 120-volt outlet in about 14 hours, or in about six hours with a 240-volt outlet (similar to a clothes dryer outlet). A glass solar roof panel converts radiated power from the sun into stored electrical energy, effectively increasing the electric range of the Karma. Standard features include regenerative brakes, recycled glass flake paint, 22-inch alloy wheels, dual zone climate control, a 10.2-inch haptic force-feedback touch-screen, 6-way heated power seats with power lumbar, and heated rear seats. The base EcoSport trim features an animal-free interior environment designed to reflect leather grain, wood trim sourced from the bottom of Lake Michigan that was undisturbed for over 300 years and brought to the surface, and other environmentally-friendly materials. The available EcoSport package includes a navigation system, backup camera and premium leather from 100-percent sustainable processing plan. The EcoChic package features a navigation system, backup camera, corn fiber based floor mats, 100-percent recycled post-industry polyester Eco-Suede, and rescued wood trim retrieved from the 2007 firestorm in Orange County, California. The Fisker Karma is a vehicle that will appeal to any environmentally-conscious consumer.
