The Designer Hybrid
The Fisker Karma is a luxury hybrid sports-sedan and the debut car for Fisker Automotive, a company founded by Art Center College of Design alumnus Henrik Fisker. Powered by two 120 kilowatt electric motors, the Karma has a pure-electric range of 32 miles. A 260 horsepower, turbocharged fourcylinder engine generates electricity for a total range of 230 miles and a solar roof helps charge an accessory battery. The distinctive Karma won Automobile magazine’s Design of the Year award in 2012.
