The Fisker Karma

The Fisker Karma is going to be around a state of the art new aluminum chassis according to a brand new press release from Automotive. Originally revealed on the 14 2008 at the North American Auto Show the Fisker quite the stir with it s lines and cutting edge the newly revealed space-frame is NASA level engineering and some of the highest strength and ratings of any high-end sports car on the Valmet Automotive will the space frames at its facility in Finland (just try saying out loud, I double dare

Pictures of the chassis are embargoed after the unveiling at the Geneva (March 2-14) but we will them here for you just as as we are allowed to.

Fisker is quite public their plans to launch a line of lower cost, volume green automobiles by and the rumours flying around the world is that it just slip a prototype of this all new car out at this year, which we need tell you would up quite a frenzy throughout the world. Here s hoping.


0-60mph – 5.8 seconds

Top – 125 mph

Range – 300 miles

Economy – 67 mpg using onboard power

Press Release


IRVINE, CA – February 17, The advanced aluminum space underpinning the Fisker Karma new levels of rigidity and strength will give the world’s premium plug-in hybrid vehicle world-class ride and characteristics. It will debut at the Motor Show March 2010.

Fisker Automotive’s talented and engineering team designed the space frame around the unique Q-DRIVE® series-hybrid filing for multiple patents in the Q-DRIVE® consists of a 2.0-liter ECOTEC® engine/generator set, a battery pack from Systems, and a rear-mounted 403hp motor assembly.

Though it the foundation of a large sedan the space frame’s rigidity is even when compared to sports cars. By utilizing and 6,000- series aluminum and a unique extrusion-intensive architecture, the engineering team achieved the balance between weight and

“Our top priorities when we the Karma’s aluminum space were that it have high torsional rigidity and be easily modified to accept model variants,” explained Fisker, CEO, Fisker “We benchmarked some of the world’s cars to create an all-new frame that will an exhilarating experience behind the

A super-structural tunnel running the car’s centerline acts as the backbone. It not only houses the pack but acts as a torque connecting front and rear For optimal strength the Karma’s frame is joined with 79 of precision CMT MIG welds and 1,058 rivets.

Each technique is independently only where to ensure top quality and durability.

The is an industry-leading space frame provides a solid foundation for the Few cars match its statistics: torsional rigidity – the amount the frame resists twisting when entering a ramp at an for example – measures more 33,000 Newton-meters per degree Static bending rigidity – the the space frame resists forces as the car enters a ramp on, for example – measures more 23,000 N/mm.

Dynamic stiffness – the space resistance to resonant vibrations those felt when over a sharp bump or road surfaces is also class.

Priority: Safety

to intelligent engineering solutions the space frame also the utmost in occupant safety and global crash protection

Front impact protection with a patent-pending, multi-cell aluminum crush box that high-impact energy away passengers. Its unique design it to be easily replaced, reducing costs that could insurance premiums. Dual 600-Series steel reinforced in the doors and B- pillars provide side impact protection.

And the battery’s location in the center of the car it farthest from impact

Valmet Automotive will the space frames at its state-of-the-art in Uusikaupunki, Finland.


Fisker is a privately owned, premium car company with a vision to the automotive industry into the of automobiles with high-end expertise and eco-friendly powertrain Global headquarters are in Irvine, USA.

The company was created in to leverage the design capabilities of Coachbuild, LLC, founded by design veterans Henrik and Bernhard Koehler, and the PHEV capabilities of Quantum Fuel Technologies Worldwide, Inc. a major Tier 1 supplier of vehicle technologies to the automotive Previously, Fisker, CEO, was director for Aston Martin and and CEO of BMW’s DesignworksUSA. Koehler, led operations for Ford’s Global Design Studio and created cars for Aston Martin, and BMW.

Fisker Automotive’s car is the Fisker Karma, the world’s premium Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle (PHEV). The four-door will be followed by two variants and a line of lower cost, volume premium green by 2012.
