ANAHEIM, CA - Fisker Automotive said it received emissions certification and fuel-economy ratings from the EPA. With this announcement, Fisker said its dealers will be able to start selling the vehicle to customers in most states.
The EPA found that when running in electric mode, the Fisker Karma sedan achieves a combined city/highway energy equivalent of 52 miles per gallon. The EPA found the Karma’s all-electric range was found to be 32 miles.
The Karma Sedan is a series Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) powered by a lithium-ion battery and a 2.0L range-extending gasoline engine. The gasoline engine only turns a generator, which charges the battery and sends electricity to two electric traction motors that drive the car, according to the automaker.
