Sleek, sexy & eco-chic the Fisker Karma is the first Luxury Plug-in Hybrid. Did I mention it's screamin' fast? Not quite as quick as the Tesla Roadster, but it still boasts an impressive 0-60 in 5.8 seconds and a top speed of 125mph. Not all power and asthetics, the Karma has some impressive eco-amenities. According to Fisker the Karma can travel 50 miles on a single charge, without tapping into it's gas reserve. For longer trips the gas tank switches on and increases the range up to 650 miles. No word on the size of the tank or the actual MPG, but another site speculates that it will get about 40mpg, which is pretty good for a sports car.
Another cool feature is the Karma's Solar Roof panels. The panels provide energy to the car's â€œself-contained climate controlâ€ system that will keep the car cool or warm when the car is parked. When the system is not in use the solar panel contributes to charging the battery.
Currently Fisker is accepting preorders for the 2010 Karma. The first Karmas should be delivered sometime in 2009, but at this point all new orders are scheduled to be delivered in the second half of 2010.
