Fisker Karma

Okay, I've gotten my blogging about the Tesla Roadster out of my system. I promise. For now. :-)

Fisker Automotive has unveiled the Karma S concept at the Detroit Auto Show - a two-door convertible with seating for four based on the Karma sedan.

Yay! Another cool hybrid to get the petrol heads (should that be changed to car enthusiaths?) on the bandwagon. It's an interesting point that most new hybrid noise is around performance cars... the Big 3 could learn some lessons from this in producing products people actually want. Apparently the team behind Fisker designed the Aston Martin DB9 and V8 Vantage, as well as the BMW Z8 Roadster.

The Karma is billed as an "extended-range plug-in hybrid", which translates to running solely on electric power with a petrol engine as a generator. Fisker claims fuel consumption of ~2.4 litres per 100 km (or 100 mpg in US speak).

WorldCarFans gives us these choice pictures below (and you can see their pictures of the sedan online):
