Fisker Automotive recently started the first round of deliveries for the Karma plug-in hybrid sedan. The first unit of the Karma will be delivered to actor Leonardo di Caprio.
Production for the Fisker Karma is scheduled to increase to 300 units a week and the company estimates that the model will be sold out by 2012.
But there are more Karma variants in the works. We’ve already see a hard-top convertible Karma S, which will launch in 2013. Before that, however, Fisker will debut a sporty shooting break/SUV type Karma, which will go on sale in 2012. The model is expected to debut at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show next month.

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.
