Fisker Karma Sunset Concept named 2009 Production Preview Concept of the Year

The Fisker Karma Sunset hardtop convertible coupe has been named the 2009 Production Preview Concept of the Year by the North American Concept Vehicle of the Year Awards. CEO and founder Henrik Fisker accepted the honors yesterday during a ceremony at the Automotive Hall of Fame in Dearborn, Michigan.

“We are honored the Karma Sunset has received such great recognition,” said Fisker Automotive CEO and lead designer Henrik Fisker. “The Karma Sunset, along with the talented Fisker Automotive team that helped develop it, proves environmentally friendly vehicles can be fast and sexy, too.”

Fisker is now accepting orders for the Karma S with deliveries to start at the end of 2011. Buyers interesting in purchasing the Karma S will have to make a deposit of $25,000.

The Karma S hard-top convertible, like its Karma sedan sibling, features the Q-Drive powertrain system that allows for 50 miles of zero-emissions driving on a single charge of its lithium-ion battery pack. It produces up to 403-hp from two electric-motors.
