Fisker Karma Plugin Electric Vehicle - Speed, Styling, and Quiet


 

Fisker Automotive, Inc.
With the introduction of the Fisker Karma, the world's first luxury plug-in hybrid, Fisker Automotive, a green American car company, is poised to change the landscape of the automotive industry. In the past,
being eco-conscious often meant sacrificing something for the greater good of the planet. But with the Fisker Karma, luxury automobile consumers will have the ability to buy an environmentally friendly vehicle without sacrifice – a vehicle that
will still deliver the superior style and luxury they are accustomed to.

Taking a novel approach to merging beauty and style with an environmental conscience, the Fisker Karma will offer consumers the ability to drive the car emission free for up to 50 miles a day, provided the car is charged every evening. It's
feasible that if consumers follow this daily routine, they will only need to fuel the car but once a year. This means it will not only cut down on pollution and global warming, but on a consumer’s gasoline budget as well.

“We’re focused on changing the face of the automobile industry by creating a new segment of eco-friendly transportation,” said Fisker Automotive, Inc. CEO Henrik Fisker. “We like to think that with this car, we’re doing our small part to help protect the environment. Allowing consumers the ability to drive emission free not only cuts down on pollution, but conceivably could reduce America's dependence on foreign oil as well.”

Statistics show that the majority of pollution from automobiles occurs on consumers' daily commute to and from work or dropping the kids off at school. Currently, more than 60% of Americans and Europeans are driving less than 50 miles on their daily commute. If this 60% of commuters would drive a plug-in hybrid like the Fisker Karma, we could see the fastest possible reduction both in oil consumption and emissions - all without sacrificing their daily driving habits. Additionally, plug-in
hybrids have the potential to augment the planning of cleaner electrical power plants, ultimately producing a dramatic effect on our society and future generations.
 

  

 
The secret to the Fisker Karma's revolutionary eco-friendly design lies in the Q DRIVE, a proprietary technology which was developed by Quantum Technologies and made exclusively for Fisker Automotive. The Karma's Q DRIVE configuration
consists of a small gasoline engine that turns the generator, which charges the lithium ion battery pack, powering the electric motor and turning the rear wheels. This Q DRIVE technology will provide a base for all future derivatives from Fisker Automotive.

The Fisker Karma will offer partly self-contained climate control, as consumers will have the option to purchase a full length solar roof that will help charge the car and provide cooling for the interior cabin while the car is parked. Additionally, Fisker Automotive will offer consumers an option to purchase a set of solar panels for their
roofs or garages where they can generate electricity during the day to charge the car overnight…again cost and emission free.
