Fisker Release New Karma Ad – Too Hot For A Hybrid?

Fisker have released a new made-for-tv advertisement for their upcoming Karma hybrid. Featuring the sultry use of an ice-cube and footage of the Karma doing doughnuts on an empty tarmac the ad is enough to make you think that Fisker hired PR Team from the mid-1980s. The Karma is due in February 2011 for a price tag of $87,000 USD (before tax incentives) and features an all electric drive-train with a 2.0 litre turbo charged gasoline engine that is used to recharge the batteries on the go if you run out of the blue stuff. Full ad after the jump, let us know what you think. Lanjut →

Fisker is set to pick up the keys to a former GM factory in Wilmington, Delaware where the plug-in hybrid electric car maker will begin rolling out its next generation of vehicles, code named “Project NINA” in 2012. Fisker Automotive spent $20 million on the currently empty 3.2 million sqft plant and will need to spend a small fortune re-tooling in the lead up to starting production of the Project NINA cars all of which are currently shrouded in mystery except for one detail, the price – $47,500 USD which will drop to about $39,000 USD after federal tax credits are applied.

The Fisker Karma Sunset Coupé

One of the most beautiful and seemingly ready for production hybrid electric concept cars we’ve seen in recent times is without a doubt the Fisker Karma Sunset. The car uses the same base platform as the 4 door Fisker Karma which itself is due out a little later this year, the revised bodywork has won a slew of admirers and although Fisker have announced no firm plans to produce the Sunset although all indications are that we can expect to see either the Sunset or a very similar car to roll out of the Fisker factory sometime after the Karma 4-door begins its first productions run.

Estimated pricing for the Sunset is running at just over the $100,000 USD mark, this would put it well below the Ferrari California ($192,000) and the Maserati GranTurismo ($118,000) and make it quite a bargain when viewed in context. We anticipate the Sunset will be offered with very similar specifications to the Karma 4-door although some have postulated that it might offer a power boost with a subsequent reduction in range.
