*Update - the Fisker Karma is currently dead. From Wikipedia: "
After missing its initial late 2009 launch, and after the launch was rescheduled several times, the first deliveries took place in the U.S. in late July 2011, and deliveries to retail customers began in November 2011. Since December 2011 pricing in the U.S. starts at US$102,000 for the basic model, and US$116,000 for the top model. Around 1,800 units were delivered in North America and Europe through December 2012.
Production was suspended in November 2012 due to financial difficulties, with about 2,450 Karmas built since 2011. After furloughing its US workers in late March, 2013, Fisker has hired a law firm to prepare for a possible bankruptcy."
The Karma is a plug-in hybrid that looks like any other sports car.
From the Extreme Tech Karma test drive:
"The Karma is what’s called a series hybrid, meaning the power is always delivered by electric motors. There are two 201-hp electric motors just ahead of the rear wheels. The gasoline engine under the hood spins a generator that sends electric power to the rear motors. It’s the same way a diesel locomotive works, only faster acceleration, just over 6 seconds to 60 mph, about 1.5 seconds slower on electric power alone. Various testers have found mileage with the gasoline engine running to be around 25 mpg. With a tank of less than 10 gallons and only 20-40 miles of battery charge, you’re looking at a highway range of around 300 miles. Recharging the battery pack runs 16 hours on household current, about a third of that with a 220-volt charger. There is a solar panel embedded in the roof to aid charging; it presents a stunning visual to passersby — “Whoa! That’s environmental!” — and a modest gain in battery range."
