Fisker has just released pictures of the road-going version of its Karma. If you’re struggling to see how this car is different from the ones they made earlier, don’t worry; it’s not you.
Most of this car has been ‘locked in’ for a while, in fact, with the exception of its petrol engine. Announced only last month was a deal done with General Motors to use GM’s 260bhp 2.0-litre turbo petrol four-pot as a generator for the plug-in hybrid powertrain.
One of the few changes to the bodywork comes at the front of the Karma. In light of that new engine; the grille has grown a little larger to provide better engine cooling.
What I don’t understand is why General Motors would get into bed with the only firm likely to beat it to market with a petrol-powered ‘range-extended electric vehicle’ (plug-in or series hybrid to you and me)?
