Fisker Karma Can Do 52 MPGe, Says EPA

Fisker Karma

These last few months have been very though for Fisker due to the fact that they had to delay the launch of the Karma for several times. They are now able to deliver the first 39 units to the dealerships after the Environmental Protection Agency said that the vehicle complies with emissions standards.

The window sticker affixed to the Karma says that it can return 52 MPGe and when it’s running on the gasoline engine to generate the necessary electricity it can do 20 mpg. According to EPA, the Fisker Karma can be driven for up to 32 miles on electric mode, which is a little bit lower than the 35 miles of the Chevrolet Volt.

As a reminder, the Fisker Karma is powered by two electric motors that provide 201 hp (150 kW) which drive the back wheels, while the range extender is a 4-cylinder 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that produces 260 hp, an engine which was bought from GM.

Actual customer sales will probably start next month.
