Production of the revolutionary vehicle, which a price tag of about US$ 80,000, is set to start by the last quarter of 2009. The first 99 units will be numbered and painted in the same colour of the car presented at the Detroit Auto Show this year.
With a range of 80 km only with its batteries charge, Karma is able to run in day to day basis with no need of fuel. If the way is longer than that, a small petrol engine starts to operate in order to charge the batteries and extend the car range a lot further (to about 1,000 km or more, depending on the size of the fuel tank).
Top speed is expected to be above 200 km/h, and the car will be able to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 6 s. For a luxury sedan, these figures are just fantastic, especially considering the car can be so fantastically clean as well.
