Fisker Automotive will debut the first factory-built Karma at the 2010 Paris Motor Show later this month.
Fisker will also announce details about the expansion of its prestigious global importer network, as well as the addition of unique images to its game-changing international marketing campaign.
The Fisker Karma plug-in hybrid redefines the luxury category with exhilarating performance, superior comfort and unparalleled sustainability.
Designed by company co-founder, CEO and executive design director Henrik Fisker, the four-door, four-passenger Karma offers luxury car buyers a truly responsible alternative to traditionally-powered vehicles by combining exotic car styling with advanced powertrain technology that delivers better efficiency and lower emissions than today’s best hybrids.
Fisker Automotive has led the automotive industry in the development of luxury plug-in hybrids since introducing the Karma as a concept in January 2008, just months after the company was established. With that introduction, the dynamic auto maker created a new market segment and will be the first in the world to have such a car to market.
The 300 kW (403 hp/408 PS) Karma PHEV reaches 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.9 seconds and a top speed of 200 km/h (125 mph), yet can achieve an annual average economy of 2.4L/100 km (100 mpg) and CO2 emissions of just 83g/km.
