2012 fisker karma

The Vault presented by Hagerty®

The 2012 Fisker Karma is a luxury hybrid sports sedan, and the debut car for Fisker Automotive.  Henrik Fisker, noted designer of prestige cars such as the BMW Z8 and the Aston Martin DB9, penned the striking bodywork.  Powered by two 120 kilowatt (161 horsepower) electric motors, the Karma has a pure-electric range of 50 miles.  When necessary, a 260-horsepower, turbocharged four-cylinder engine automatically generates electricity for an additional 250 miles.  To bolster efficiency further, the Karma also features a solar panel roof that powers the climate control and provides additional driving range on a sunny day. While Fisker Automotive is headquartered in Southern California, the Karma is actually manufactured in Uusikaupunki, Finland.
