Fisker's penchant for low-slung, sleek, and sexy design shines through in the Karma. But he, with his team, has also delivered a whole new spin on electric technology.

Why has this taken so long? Railway locos and ships have been using essentially this idea for decades, because it is more efficient. Generally referred to as diesel/electric. The variation is the batteries, which can not only be charged from the grid, but also collect energy from regenerative braking and the like.
Coming in behind the new hybrid technologies, they have finally reinvented the wheel.
Good looking car though.

All this fuss and it can't beat a VW Karmann Ghia for gas milage (45 to 50 MPG)? The electric mode isn't bad, but they were doing this with the Baker Electric before WW2.

It's nice there are more and more options for better efficiency cars. Sad it cost almost 100K.
