Fisker Karma to go on tour across North America

Fisker Automotive announced today that it will be launching a North American tour to introduce its Karma premium plug-in hybrid sedan to local markets, and support the company”s new retail network.

“Scheduled to kick off Tuesday, April 27 from the company”s Irvine, California headquarters, the two-month program will stop in 42 cities in 26 states and three Canadian provinces,” Fisker said.

While the Karma is on tour, it will give the 1,600-plus people who have deposited $5,000 for the sedan, the first chance to see the Karma in person. Fisker expects the customers who put down the first 1,600 deposits to take delivery on their Karmas in the first quarter of 2011.

Refresher: Power comes from Fisker”s Q-DRIVE system, which is made up of two 201-hp electric motors that are powered by a lithium-ion battery pack. That allows the 2010 Karma to travel up to 50 miles without the use of any gasoline. A generator attached to a 260-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter Ecotec direct injection gasoline engine by General Motors provides an extended range of up to 300 miles. 0 to 60 mph comes in 5.8 seconds with a top speed of 125 mph.
