ALTHOUGH FISKER’S FINANCES HAVE BEEN UNCERTAIN IN RECENT MONTHS, the company’s ability to produce a first-class design has never been in question. The Karma is a plug-in with a curved bonnet and enough room for four adults (really). Named for company founder Henrik Fisker, the renowned former BMW and Aston Martin designer, the Fisker Karma takes on gas-only GTs like the Porsche Panamera and Aston Martin Rapide. Like other range-extending hybrids, the Fisker cruises on electricity until its battery is depleted, covering 30 to 50 miles at the electric equivalent of 52 mpg. Then a General Motors-manufactured turbo four-cylinder engine steps in to generate electricity for the rear wheels, boosting total range to 230 miles. Pop the 403-horsepower Karma into its sport mode and 60 mph arrives in a reasonable six seconds, despite the car’s crushing weight of 5,600 pounds. A massive solar roof helps cool the car or power accessories, saving precious battery power. And an optional “EcoChic” interior features burnished wood reclaimed from California wildfires or driftwood from the bottom of Lake Michigan.
