(Very) Quick Spin 2012 Fisker Karma Fox News

( Very) Quick Spin: 2012 Fisker Karma Fisker I’ll try to keep this brief, because that’s how my drive in the Fisker Karma was. Covered in mud, on the way back to FoxNews.com HQ from a day of off-roading in the 2012 Jeep Wrangler, I decided to pop into Fisker of Bergen, in the New York City suburb of Paramus, N.J. to see if I could noodle an old-fashioned, around-the-block test drive of the pricey plug-in hybrid luxury sedan — a proper press car having yet to become available. The staff was more than happy to oblige, and well-versed in the ins and outs of this revolutionary new vehicle. Keep in mind that, in light of all of the talk about battery-powered cars these days, this is ...

The Price of Karma Popular Science

Greener than a Prius and hotter than a Maserati, the Fisker Karma promises to change the way the world thinks about electric cars. The only problem is that nobody outside the company has driven one yet. Will Henrik Fisker tempt buyers into the electric age, or is he already a relic of the past? Future Man Henrik Fisker with a clay model of his closely guarded electric luxury sedan John B. Carnett Long, wide and low-slung, the car looks exotic, unplaceable. It’s the length of a Mercedes CLS, the width of a BMW 7-series, and the height of a Porsche 911, says the corporate spokesman at the wheel. The front end is so long that it must hold at least a V8, but in fact there is no discernible ...

Fisker Karma review Auto Express

Verdict You can compare the Karma to an Aston Martin Rapide or other cheaper alternatively powered cars, like the Vauxhall Ampera, until you’re blue in the face, but there’s truly nothing like Fisker’s range-extender on the road. Its striking proportions are simply amazing to look at, while the build quality and luxury also impress. It also has a powertrain that offers a credible mix of performance and economy. It’s just a shame we’re still waiting for right-hand-drive cars to hit UK roads. You can’t buy a Fisker Karma from a UK dealer and there’s still no confirmed timescale for when right-hand-drive cars will become available. But that hasn’t stopped the California firm ...
