    The Fisker Karma can travel emission free for up to 50 miles on a full
charge from any 110-, 220- or 240-volt electric outlet.  A total range of up
to 300 miles is estimated in Sport Mode, which utilizes the efficient
Ecotec(R) gasoline engine to turn a generator that powers two electric motors
on the rear differential.  The Karma can achieve an annual average of more
than 100 miles per gallon with a top speed of 125 mph and a 0-60 mph time of
5.8 seconds
    

    
    With a starting price of $87,900, 1,000 orders for the 100
mile-per-gallon luxury plug-in hybrid have been received since the prototype
debuted at the 2008 NAIAS.  Karma deliveries are scheduled to begin in the
fourth quarter of 2009 through the Fisker Automotive Retail network.
