Even if you think the Fisker Surf looks too outlandish to be more than a concept, the Karma wagon is indeed production-bound and will join the Fisker Karma by July of 2012.

The 2013 Fisker Surf is an impressive range-extended electric wagon that comes fitted with a 260-horsepower turbocharged on-board generator, a 234-horsepower electric motor, 20-kWh battery pack and was officially unveiled at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Oh, and hey, we've stumbled upon sneak-peek video that captures the Surf in action. Hit the jump to check out footage of Fisker's shooting brake as it whirs down secluded country roads and cick here for exclusive details on the Fisker Surf.

      The solar panel is bigger on this model then the regular karma 133 watts versus 120 watts. Im glad to see a solar panel on the roof, why not tap some surplus energy even if it give just one mile a day, at least it give something without cost and pollution. It's ridicoulous to do like leaf, volt and tesla and forget to tap some free non-polluting energy. Also in the future someone can invent a really more efficient solar panel and maybe we will laugh of this one and also maybe we will lauph of the efficiency of the range extender of the volt and fisker because it look inneficient with an equivalent mpg in gasoline mode instead of an increase in efficiency.

        I don't know if other people have commented on this... but I can't look at this and not think of Harold & Maude: http://www.samulli.com/weblog/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/harold-and-maude-jaguar-xke-hearse.jpg

          Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. For those that don't know what we are talking about; in the movie HAROLD & MAUDE, Harold converted a Jaguar XKE to a hearse. Best looking hearse ever built. Great movie. Frisker Hearse - stylin'

      Sounds like a diesel

        Listen carefully. They set up this ride and filmed serveral recharge shots in the middle of nowhere. the energy was supplied by a diesel genset. the AAA also experiments with trucks with a fast charger on board to fillup stranded evs.

      Interesting design, and that they had diesel engine running on the background while filming the clips for charging port (considering that the car has already on-board generator and theatricality can be done without actually using external generator). Probably just weren't willing to fill the car's fuel tank for the short test drive.

      Thanks for getting a video posted before someone laid a techo-soundtrack over it!

      Don't like it. The Karma looks great, but they're trying to translate too much of the Karma into a wagon. The upper rear portion is way too narrow, eliminating interior space in the name of form. People buy wagons for more interior space, whether that's for passengers, cargo, or both. Fisker missed the mark with this one.

      The only thing I could think of watching the video is "Is that all the faster it goes?" I'm sure it does go faster than that, but it was a bit odd to watch it go so slowly.
