There is one major problem with the current list of electric or hybrid sedans on the market right now: they are seen as boring by many people. Sure, some drivers have fun in their hybrids by squeezing the most mileage that they can from a gallon of gas, and many people have a good time with the "eco-screen" that many vehicles come equipped with, but those features could hardly be described as "sexy". Henrik Fisker plans to change all of that with the Karma, his hybrid sedan capable of 125 miles per hour and a 6 second rush to 60. According to Fisker, ''For me it's important to create a vehicle that's so sexy you've just got to have it, and later you find out that you can go 80 kilometers (50 miles) without using any gas." That sounds like pretty good reasoning. For drivers who want to to be green and look good doing it, the Karma may be the perfect vehicle.

For what it's worth, we think that the Karma is a beautiful car, and sincerely hope that Fisker is able to get it into production for the end of '09 as is currently planned.

      Niralisherni-

      Your spam on this blog is getting laborious and old. Everyone else has done well ignoring your plugs, but I can't take it anymore. Respectfully stop.

      Highly unlikely since all chasis have been sold and the tooling destroyed. BMW ran into issues when a few cars suffered frame damage while under warranty and spend several weeks finding new frames for them. They had to buy them back from alpina and then fly them to the states

      Looks like Fisker's been reading Tesla's website:

      Yes i suppose it helps if cars are so sexy that everything else is just secondary, but cute is good enough for me. ZAP's electric vehicles ( http://zapworld.com), cute, cheap to run, good for the environment and very practical. That is good enough for me, i can do without sexy.

      I thought the whole point was to flaunt your eco-friendliness with as asexual a vehicles as possible.

      I was at the Zap booth during the SanFran auto show last year. Not only is the Zap lineup ugly, they are impractical. Chinese made junk. Straight up.

      Don't come spammin' round here no more bro.
