Sleek Fisker Karma
Fisker Automotive has a plug-in electric vehicle that also uses a gasoline engine to extend range. The high-end Karma, expected to be priced around $88,000, will go about 50 miles on its battery charge before the gasoline-powered generator kicks in. The company says the Karma, which was originally planned for release at the end of last year, is due in at the end of this year in limited numbers. The company says the combination will allow people to get over 100 miles per gallon.
Fisker's next project is the Nina, a more affordable gas-electric car that it plans to manufacture in the U.S.
