Fisker Karma Delivers Performance

On a performance level, the Karma also delivers. It can go from zero to 60 mph in just 5.8 seconds with a top speed of 125 mph with supposed sports car handling. Now that performance gear heads have been pleased (really, numbers like these are amazing for a hybrid), it's time to give the environmentalists a chance. Since Fisker relies on parts from other automakers, why can't it also rely on fallen trees? Say what? Yes, the wood trim interior is composed of fallen trees that would have rotted back into the earth.

Another interesting option is a solar-panel roof that can help recharge the car's batteries and assist in the interior's climate control system. Final pricing is still to be announced, but reports indicate it'll run for around $87,000.
