Meet Fisker: A New Kind of CARma

Fisker Karma

Justin Bieber owns one. So does Leonardo DiCaprio.  Sleek. Sexy. Sustainable.  These three words come to mind when describing the world’s first luxury electric vehicle (or, as adjectives to the above owners) produced by Fisker Automotive and manufactured at Valmet Automotive in Finland. Otherwise known as the Fisker Karma, you may have seen it strutting down a street near you.  If not, join Ron and I as we take a spin at Fisker of Orange County in this beauty and show you, up close and personal, what makes this luxurious, plug-in hybrid sedan oh, so green including: it’s eco-friendly interior; a seamless solar powered roof; 100% recyclable dry powder water-based paint and more!  Yes, it comes with a steep price, but also a passion for preserving our planet. High style, but low impact.  Zero emissions and zero compromise.  For those who don’t want to sacrifice style for sustainability – meet your new set of wheels.

Watch BELOW and come cruise with us!

Recall update: Fisker is recalling all 2,000 of the just introduced plug-in hybrids because a small cooling fan caused a fire in a Karma in aCalifornia parking lot.  Fortunately, no one was hurt in the incident. According to the Los Angeles Times, ‘Fisker said it will contact Karma owners and arrange to replace the cooling fan. Technicians also will install an additional fuse, which Fisker said will provide added protection.’

Hello Charlotte~
Thank you ! The Fisker Karma is the world’s first ‘luxury’ electric sedan with extended range. As a luxury sedan, it is price comparable to other luxury vehicles & includes all of the expected bells & whistles (plus the the amazing 52mpg)! Base price range for the Ecostandard 2012 model is $103,000-$116,000. Visit here for more info, options, etc: http://onward.fiskerautomotive.com/en-us/karma/overview/

Thank you. I thought somewhere about there! No surpise. It will be great when these type cars are available to the “common” man. Whatever that is.
