The Fisker Karma S is a stunning vehicle designed by Henrik
Fisker - ex-Jaguar, Aston Martin and BMW designer and
founder of Fisker Coachbuild - a company rapidly becoming
one of the major players in the world of hybrid eco-friendly
The Karma S is powered by two electric
motors which combined make 403 hp
Unveiled at the 2009 Detroit Motor Show, the styling of
the Karma S is very similar to the Karma
sedan which was unveiled in 2008 - and is due to go
into production in 2010. This family resemblance is no
bad thing when the resulting vehicle looks this good.
The thin center section of the vehicle gives the impression
of athletic ability while the bulging rear wheel arches
imbue the concept with a sense of latent power. The styling
details such as the headlights, taillights and exhaust
pipes have all been carefully designed to fit perfectly
with the overall shape of the car.
"Our objective is to create a singular design language
and heritage around our state- of-the-art Q-DRIVE powertrain,"
said Henrik Fisker. "The Karma S is an extension of
the Fisker Automotive product range of eco- conscious
automobiles and sets the tone for our future."
Powering the Fisker Karma S is a hybrid drivetrain which
consists of a plug-in capable lithium-ion battery pack
and twin electric motors capable of delivering up to 403
horsepower to the rear wheels. The Karma S has a 50 mile
all-electric range and a 2.0L turbocharged and direct-injected
EcoTec four-cylinder which acts as a generator for longer
