“The Karma ranks as our lowest-rated luxury sedan,” Consumer Reports said in an article. “Of all sedans, only three have lower overall scores: Chrysler 200, Dodge Avenger, and Nissan Versa SV.”

The publication complained about limited visibility, cramped interior and glitchy touchscreen system.

Besides talking up the Fisker Karma’s attributes in a press released, Fisker had this to say regarding Consumer Reports review:

The Karma impressed CR’s evaluators with its outstanding ride, handling and braking, which can be attributed to the car’s low, wide stance, race-inspired suspension and massive Brembo brakes. As the Karma is a concept car come to life, packaging and visibility will of course not be that of a minivan…

Plans are in place to improve sound quality, which is a new challenge for all silent-running EVs, while software improvements are being made to touch-screen controls to improve responsiveness and functionality.
