March 1st, 2011 by GreenDan Leave a reply »

The car will roll off the company’s assembly line by March 2012 and hit the stores around the United States in April.

It is worth mentioning that this nice-looking eco-friendly vehicle was expected to be launched in November 2009, but the production was pushed back to September 2010. Then it was once again pushed back to February 2011.

Now it seems that the company will finally start the production of Karma.

Until now around 3,000 people placed orders. Fisker looks forward to selling 15,000 cars each year. Those who have at least $95,900 will be able to own this vehicle.

Karma shows acceleration from 0 to 60mph in about 6 seconds and its top speed is 125 miles per hour.

The car is based on technology of Quantum Technologies. Its Q DRIVE features a small gasoline engine that charges the onboard battery packs.
