Stylishly Green - 2011 Fisker Karma Hybrid sedan

You have NEVER seen a hybrid sedan like this before! The Fisker Karma is the world's first premium plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV). It combines world-class luxury and sports car-like performance with industry-leading economy and zero tailpipe emissions.

To be produced by Fisker Automotive of California, the Fisker name has attracted and attained worldwide brand recognition, thanks to years of first-class automotive designs. Over his 18 years in the car design business, Henrik Fisker has left his thumbprint on some of the most highly regarded automobiles. His creations range from the BMW Z8, Aston Martin DB9 & V8 Vantage to his most recent creations - the Tramonto and Latigo CS, designed under the Fisker Coachbuild nameplate.

With the launch of Fisker Automotive, Fisker was inspired to keep the excitement alive in car design. This time a new element was considered in the overall design - to deliver a beautiful car that makes environmental sense. Environmentally friendly, plug-in hybrid cars don't have to be bland in design. The focus was to creating a design which delivers the ECO-CHIC factor - an environmentally friendly car with a futuristic design delivering sculpture, dramatic proportion and all without compromise.

The stance of the first design, the 2011 Fisker Karma, is wide and low. It delivers dramatic proportions for a four-door sports sedan that one would not anticipate -- the height of a Porsche 911, length of a Mercedes Benz CLS and the width of a BMW 7 Series. The sleek design accents the long hood and is a direct result of our breakthrough chassis. Fisker was able to incorporate many of the aspects a designer would dream of in designing a car - the design takes the technology and proves that the best technology can be wrapped up in a beautiful package.

Power for the Karma sedan is generated by the automaker's patented Q-DRIVE- series hybrid powertrain system. Q-DRIVE
