A Concept Come True

Posted by: Alex Navrotski

Hybrid dream-team Fisker Automotive announced today that they'll be showing off their much-anticipated Karma plug-in hybrid electric vehicle at the 2010 Chicago Auto Show. This will be the Karma's Chicago debut, just ahead of its release to the streets later this year.

The sculpted four-door Karma is a 403 horsepower green dream, capable of 125 mph and 0-60 in 6 seconds, all the while maintaining an impressive 100 mpg. Even better the first 50 miles of the PHEV's 300-mile range are electric only and produce no emissions. 

The Karma features 22-inch wheels, a 10.2 inch touch-screen control center, and space for two sets of golf clubs in the trunk, proving that the frisky hybrid is no poser. As versatile in the garage as on the road, the vehicle’s lithium-ion battery can be topped off from a standard 110v power outlet or charged in just 6 hours from a 220v outlet.

Two Chicagoland retail groups will carry the Fisker brand when the Karma hits showrooms later this year: the Fields Auto Group, and the Patrick Dealer Group. A new Karma will set you back at least $87,900, though there's a $7,500 federal tax credit plus up to $4,000 from the state--making the possible base price a much-more-palatable $76,400.

The striking and distinctive Fisker Karma is proof that sometimes concepts do come true. It's a must-see during your visit to the 2010 Chicago Auto Show.
