While not strictly all electric, the Karma still uses electric only drive, and is backed up by a small on board gasoline generator to provide the charge for the Lithium Ion batteries that drives the car.

Fisker says that if you drive 50 miles a day and charge the car in the evening, you will not need to buy gasoline for a year...

So what can this car do?

It can achieve 50 miles on battery only, when the Gasoline engine will provide the backup charging capability for further travel.

It can reach 125 mph top and get to 60 mph in 5.8 seconds.

It is due for sale in 2011, and is estimated to retail for $100,000 US.

All common safety features of modern cars are fitted, along with regenerative braking which recovers electric power for the batteries while slowing down or stopping.

Even if this car was an internal combustion engine, it would be a showstopper, but the cachet of electric places it in another realm...

The Fisker Karma Electric Car manufactured in the USA will be available soon and the company has admitted to having 1000 pre orders so far...

They have also said that official government crash tests will occur very soon...

Actual EPA mileage tests will take longer..

Company sources state that the car gets over 100 mpg however...

The car is similar to the Chevy Volt and actually uses a GM engine for the range extension motor...

But it is a different ballgame for this electric car, Fisker has produced what is a luxury car, with all the extras that luxury buyers expect, so it will compete in that arena...

The performance of the Fisker Karma electric car will be very good, 5.8 seconds to 60 mph, and 125 mph top...

50 miles on its Lithium Ion batteries before a charge is necessary, which can be backed up by the inbuilt GM range extender motor...
