Click above for a high-res gallery of the Fisker Karma.

The Fisker Karma has the looks of a luxury vehicle, the plug-in technology everyone craves, and now it has a plant to be built. According to Fisker, Valmet Automotive of Finland, which currently builds the Porsche Cayman and Boxster, will produce about 15,000 Karmas per year beginning in 2010, with North American sales will begin in fall 2009.

Fisker also released some performance numbers for the $80k sedan, and they're pretty impressive. Thanks to lithium ion batteries, owners can expect to go 50 miles without using a single drop of gasoline, and the overall range of the Karma is a Volt-like 350 miles. The Karma will have a top speed of 125 mph, and a 0-60 time of about 5.8 seconds. With the price of gas rising by the day, by the end of 2009 a 100 mpg plug-in hybrid could be a steal, even at $80k.
