Video: Fisker Karma Ready To Make Deliveries


Fisker is ready to deliver the much-awaited Karma to anxious customers.

After a long anticipated wait and years of delay, Fisker has started to deliver the first Karmas to anxious customers. The Fisker Karma generates power from a 20KW lithium-ion battery that sends power to two electric motors that produce an output of 402hp and a mighty powerful 959 lb-ft of torque, the same force you would expect to see in a Triango Revelation or Cadillac CTS-V Coupe. This force enables the Karma to accelerate from 0-62 mph in 5.9 seconds and hit a top speed of 124 mph.

The Karma can also go 50 miles on electricity alone. When the battery is empty, a turbocharged 2.0-liter gasoline engine acts as a generator to recharge it. The Fisker Karma has an overall range of 300 miles and a very low fuel consumption, making the car eco-friendly and fuel efficient.
