Irvine, California (PRWEB) October 8, 2009
Fisker of Orange County is proud to announce that the dealership is now taking pre-orders for its four-door Karma sports sedan and the Karma S convertible, both to be delivered in 2010.
Clients can pre-order their vehicle or get more information at the Fisker of Orange County Web site at fiskeroforangecounty.com. The deposit for the Karma sedan is $5,000 while the deposit for the convertible Karma S model is $25,000.
"We know our customers have been eagerly awaiting the launch of the Karma," said Steve Rudkin, Fisker of Orange County General Sales Manager. "It won't be long before they'll be able to enjoy a premium, environmentally-friendly sports car without losing any luxury or performance."
The Fisker Karma, which starts at an MSRP of $87,000, fuses the traditional and timeless styling of veteran auto designer and Fisker Automotive CEO Henrik Fisker with Quantum Technologies' clean Q-DRIVE® plug-in hybrid powertrain. The result is the world's first true premium luxury plug-in hybrid sports car capable of a top speed of 125 mph and a 0-60 mph time of 5.8 seconds.
The cutting-edge plug-in hybrid technology allows a fully-charged Karma to not burn any fuel for the first 50 miles. Venture further and the gasoline engine turns a generator that charges the lithium ion battery, making it operate as a normal hybrid vehicle. This balance of electric and gas range makes it possible for Karma drivers who charge their vehicles overnight and commute less than 50 miles a day to achieve an average fuel economy of 100 miles per gallon.
