Fisker Karma S concept
To underscore the company's lust for life, Fisker today unveiled a retractable hardtop version of the Karma, called the Karma S ("S" stands for "Sunset"). It's essentially the same car with a wheelbase 250 mm shorter. Only 15% of "A" surfaces are common with the four-door coupe. Production is tentatively slated for mid-2011.
Meanwhile, the hard numbers for the propulsion system, developed by Fisker and Quantum Technologies, keep coming. The company promises 50 miles of all-electric range. The battery is rated at 22.6 kilowatt-hours, with a peak discharge of 200 kilowatts, 403 total electric horsepower and a peak torque of 959 pound-feet, 0-60 in 5.8 seconds and a top speed of 125 mph.
