Fisker Automotive has released a bit more information about that one lap that the Karma ran at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca on Saturday. According to the start-up, during the silent (for proof, see the video) lap around the track, the luxury plug-in hybrid managed to hit 100 mph and didn't use any gasoline. Average folks with money who buy a Karma won't get to hit that speed very often (to say nothing of the 125 mph top speed), but the Karma's 0-60mph time of six seconds won't go unnoticed. At Laguna Seca over the weekend, the driver was Fisker Automotive co-founder and COO Bernhard Koehler.
Fisker CEO Henrik Fisker believes the single lap shows a lot of promise: ""This demonstration represents a significant milestone for Fisker Automotive and PHEV technology. The future of clean cars is bright."
