American Luxury Cars - 09 - 2012 Fisker Karma
The 2012 Fisker Karma is priced at over $100,000, which makes it one of the most expensive American luxury cars available. The Fisker Karma is intended to offer a coddling ride mixed with the kind of fuel economy that only a plug-in hybrid can deliver, but it also throws in lively performance to go with its exotic looks. The Karma's 32-mile electric-only range is complemented by a gas-powered four-cylinder engine that extends its operating radius once its batteries have been drained. Altogether, the gas engine and pair of electric motors that make up the sedan's drivetrain push out 403 horsepower and just under 1,000 lb-ft of torque.
