Video: Fisker Karma makes public driving debut

Fisker Karma Laguna SCEA drive

A prototype of the 2010 Fisker Karma plug-in hybrid sedan made its first public driving debut this past weekend around Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca during the Rolex Monterey Historic Automobile Races. Driven by co-founder and COO Bernhard Koehler, the prototype hit speeds in excess of 100 mph, using both Sport (hybrid) and Stealth (electric only) modes around Mazda

Fisker Karma plug-in hybrid sedan can go from 0 to 60 mph in just 6 seconds with a top speed of 125 mph. Even with that kind of performance, the Karma achieves well over 100 mpg (pending those crazy EPA certifications).

“This demonstration represents a significant milestone for Fisker Automotive and PHEV technology,” said CEO Henrik Fisker. “The future of clean cars is bright.”

Fisker will start delivering Karmas to customers in the summer of 2010.
