Fisker Karma Review by an Actual Owner


In the post-Sandy aftermath, you’ve surely heard of Fisker and their loss of several million dollars-worth of hybrid cars. Karma, Fisker’s flagship hybrid, costs about $100,000 and contains a V8 engine and an electric motor. However, it is not a sportscar, despite its gorgeous looks.

As a hybrid, the Karma has no competition, but as an electric car, it’s located somewhere between Tesla’s Model S and the Roadster. However, it lacks the power such an expensive car needs to get attention.

The following video has been made by a Fisker Karma owner and I think it’s the most accurate and detailed description of the car so far. So, if you’re interested in the Karma, go take a look before deciding yourself to buy it.

Nevertheless, remember, no matter what this guy’s disappointment points are, the Karma is still a good car (as he states in the end). Fisker needs to refine it a bit more, that’s all. For $100K you have the right to be picky.

  1. This video was made almost a year ago and 90% of the things the owner complains about were fixed by summer 2012.  It’s no longer an accurate reflection of the Karma experience if you’re driving off the lot today.

    Actually it has a 2.0-liter GM EcoTec 4-cylinder turbo under the hood. And it has two 401-hp electric motors, not only one.
