Performance

Finally, sustainable design without compromise. Introducing the Fisker Karma, the first true electric luxury vehicle with extended range and the freedom to plug in or fill up. With the ability to toggle between the all-electric Stealth Mode or fuel assisted Sport Mode with the simple shift of the paddle, the Karma delivers high impact performance while maintaining a low impact on the environment. The Fisker Karma — a bold expression of uncompromised responsible luxury.

Powerplant

At Fisker Automotive, we strive to create environmentally conscious vehicles with passion, style and performance. It all starts with 959 lb/ft (1300 Newton/meters) of torque, instantly available at 0 RPM. In Sport Mode, the Karma’s EVer™ power management system utilizes the lithium-ion battery system in conjunction with the 2.0 liter 260 HP 4-cylinder direct injection motor (which is connected to a 175kW generator) to accelerate the Karma from 0-60 mph in 6.3 seconds and a top speed of 125 mph (200 km/h).

Wheels and Suspension

The Fisker Karma combines suspension engineering, innovative packaging and lightweight materials to create a low center of gravity and provide superior performance handling. Large 22″ wheels wrapped in Goodyear® F1 Supercar tires (255/35R22 front, 285/35RR rear) are essential to the vehicle’s presence, and come standard with every Karma. A 21-inch winter tire and wheel package compatible with chains is also available as an optional accessory.

Braking Systems

The Karma’s braking system is comprised of Brembo® Monobloc calipers (6-piston front, 4-piston rear) with massive, directionally ventilated rotors and a sophisticated antilock braking system. The system is configured to provide Traction Control, Electronic Stability Control and a Panic Brake Assist (PBA) to maximize the friction brake system’s capabilities for the shortest stopping distance possible.
