Almost a year and a half after being introduced as a concept, the Fisker Karma PHEV (Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle) had its driving debut during the Historic Automobile Races at Monetery 2009.
Driven by the company’s co-founder, Bernhard Keohler, the 403 HP Fisker Karma was able to travel with speeds of 100 mph using no fuel around the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.
The Fisker Karma PHEV uses a hybrid powering system composed from a traditional 4-cylinder 260 HP gasoline engine and two powerful electric motors that give the full size sedan the ability to travel for 50 miles without consuming fuel.
As far as performance the Fisker Karma PHEV can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 6.0 seconds, reaching a top speed of 125 mph, able to return 100 mph with lower carbon emissions than today’s hybrids.
