We knew we should have gone to the Washington D.C. Auto Show – former General and Secretary of State Colin Powell was spotted spending a great deal of his time at the Fisker Automotive display checking out the Fisker Karma.
Who knows? Maybe Powell will be one of the first lucky owners of the Fisker Karma when it hits roads later this year. We’re sure he has $87,900 to drop on the car.
Refresher: Power comes from a 201-hp electric motor mated to a lithium-ion battery pack provided by Q-DRIVE. That allows 50 miles of travel without the use of any gasoline. After battery power runs out, the Karma uses a 260-hp turbocharged 2.0L Ecotec direct-injection engine that provides additional mileage. The Fisker Karma has a total range of up to 300 miles in Sport Mode. 0 to 60 comes in 5.8 seconds with a top speed of 125 mph.
