2013 Fisker Karma
Price tag: Base estimate $105,000
The Fisker Karma, now on sale, is a coupe-like four-door sedan boasting a gas engine and electric motor.
The plug-in hybrid uses a 20kWh lithium ion battery and is paired with a four-cylinder gas engine, reaching 403 horsepower, and can reach a rate of 0 - 60mph in 7.9 seconds. In the electric-only mode, the car is able to reach 95mph. In sports mode, this increases to 0 - 60mph in 5.9 seconds and a top speed of 125mph.
Recharging the battery takes a minimum of six hours. The car is also equipped with solar panels on the roof that Fisker says can provide five additional miles of driving per week.
The Karma's two-litre Ecotec engine returns 20 miles to the gallon. However, if the electric battery is fully charged, the EPA says customers can avoid switching to fossil fuels for a total of 32 miles.
