Auto maker Fisker is all set to venture in the electric car segment in the Chinese market. The company has set a November date to launch its high end electric Karma sports car for the Chinese market.
Henrik Fisker, the founder of the company on September 9, 2012 in Vancouver said that the launch of the vehicle is a part of its expansion plans in Asia. Fisker who was attending an auto show said, “We’re very excited about having the first environmental friendly car with extended range inChina, and sort of the first super car, if you want, that’s going to enter China with this type of drive train”.
The company has claimed that the Karma will be the world’s first high performance electric luxury vehicle. The vehicle will feature a plug-in and an internal combustion engine. The main characteristics of the car include environmental friendly features with a curved solar power roof which generates electricity when the car is parked.
The interiors include wood and upholstery which has either been reclaimed, recycled or reused with no animal products like leather. The lithium ion batteries allows the vehicle to achieve up to 80 kms on electric power speeds of up to 200 km/h after a six hour recharge.
