The Fisker Karma, a name which envisions grand design and immaculate style, is what the Jadeite is in the precious mineral world when compared to the automotive industry. The Fisker Karma dubbed as the first luxury plug-in range-extended electric sports sedan. The brainchild of Danish-American automotive entrepreneur Henrik Fisker, the Karma was meant to be a European-inspired American hybrid. It enjoyed niche popularity, with 2,600 units sold over a two-year production run of 2011 and 2012, of which 1,800 were sold in the USA. This is a 2012 Fisker Karma EcoSport with just 37,100 miles on the clock, from Georgia. The car has been maintained with utmost care and is available with complete maintenance records.
This 2012 Fisker Karma EcoSport is mantled in a White Sand finish. It cruises on a set of 5-spoke trident design Vossen wheels with 22” Yokohama tires of 255/35 at the front, and 285/35 at the rear. Red Brembo brake calipers enhance the look further and assure proper stopping power too. This car is the 1,373rd unit produced. This Karma is reported to have a total of $20,000 in aesthetic upgrades, some of which include a custom paint job where all chrome parts were changed to a midnight black color. A custom spoiler and ceramic tinted windows are also part of the upgrades. Aiding the cabin climate control system is an advanced solar panel roof. The dark gray interior features a leather wrapped multi-function sports steering wheel is equipped with paddle shifters which are used to engage ‘Sport’ or ‘Stealth’ modes, as well as levels of regenerative braking. A touchscreen is used for controlling climate and infotainment functions. Owing to the positioning of the battery down the center of the car, the Karma is a four-seater.
Powering this 2012 Fisker Karma EcoSport are dual 120kW motors that produce a system total of 403hp and 960 lb ft of torque. Driving the rear axle through a limited-slip differential, they allow the Karma to accelerate from rest to 60mph in 5.9 seconds in Sport mode, and the top speed is capped at 125mph. Being a series hybrid, the 20.1kWh battery pack that is mounted along the spine of the car is charged by a 2.0L GM Ecotec turbocharged engine. The Karma is also a plug-in hybrid, as in it can be plugged into your home or a charging station to top up the battery. One of its safety features include emitting a warning sound when travelling in all-electric mode at speeds of less than 25mph to warn pedestrians and cyclists of the car’s presence.
