2012 Fisker Karma Hybrid

Here are 2012 Fisker Karma hybrid price, review, pics . 2012 Fisker Karma is latest hybrid sports car from Fisker Karma. Electric power was setup for this luxury sports car. The Fisker Karma is a plug-in hybrid luxury sports sedan produced by Fisker Automotive and manufactured at Valmet Automotive in Finland.

The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rated the Karma s combined city/highway fuel economy at 52 mpg-US (4.5 L/100 km; 62 mpg-imp) equivalent (MPG-e) in all-electric mode, and at 20 mpg-US (12 L/100 km; 24 mpg-imp) in gasoline-only mode. EPA s official all-electric range is 32 mi (51 km). Due to the very small cabin interior volume, the EPA rated the Fisker Karma as a subcompact.

After missing its initial late 2009 launch, and after the launch was re-scheduled 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.

The Karma is technically a series hybrid, driven by a pair of electric motors totaling 403hp that get their power from a 22 kWh lithium ion battery supplied by A123 Systems, or a 175 kW generator spun by an efficient, 2.2L gasoline engine. The engine is mated with a generator to provide an electrical connection to the motors and also recharge the batteries and as such the electric motors are the only mechanical driving force connected to the wheels.

The Karma lays a good foundation. Up front there’s a 260-hp, GM-supplied four-cylinder engine spinning a mighty generator. Next in line is a 20-kWh, American-made lithium-ion battery pack. Twin AC motors straddling the rear axle deliver 402 horsepower to the differential.

Its purpose is to turn a generator that produces electric power to send to the drive motors. Rated by the EPA  at 20 miles per gallon when the engine is on, the gasoline-powered generator can provide up to 200 more miles and the same again once the gas tank is filled up.

The Karma s two 201 brake horsepower (204 PS) motors produce 1,300 newton metres (960 ft·lbf) of torque, more than the Bugatti Veyron at 1,250 N·m (920 ft·lbf). The Karma features a 125 mph (201 km/h) top speed and is capable of reaching 60 mph (97 km/h) from a standstill in 5.8 seconds.


The 2012 Karma has a 20-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack that sends electricity to a pair of 150-kilowatt (200-horsepower) electric motors mounted fore and after of the rear axle. According to the EPA, the Karma can deliver 32 miles of electric range, after which a 260-hp, 2.0-liter direct-injected and turbocharged four-cylinder engine switches on. Crucially, that engine does not provide torque to the wheels.
