Besides showing the Fisker Surf at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, the automaker announced that the convertible version of the Karma – the Fisker Sunset – will arrive in 2013. The news was confirmed bycompany CEO Henrik Fisker yesterday at the Frankfurt auto show.
The Fisker Sunset will serve as a halo car for the company’s lineup.
Refresher: Power for the Fisker Sunset 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 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.
