Production-ready Fisker Karma will be presented at Detroit Auto Show

NAIAS, also known as Detroit Auto Show, will be a mirror of the North American car market when it opens its doors next year, in January. It will have very little to be proud of, since many carmakers have already decided not to attend it. Anyway, there is at least one good news expecting the event's visitor: the production-ready Fisker Karma, shown for the first time today.

Besides this first image of the car that will actually be sold, Fisker has also informed the car will use a 2-litre Ecotec direct-injection turbo petrol engine to recharge Karma's batteries. The company did not explain why Karma need a 260 bhp engine to do this job (a smaller engine would do the same with much less fuel), but this will probably be discussed when the car is officially presented. Meanwhile, you can also see the new electric sedan with fuel-powered recharging system undergoing tests. Let's hope they can make this beautiful car be also known for a sharp handling, great performance and ultra-low or no emissions at all. This would justify the US$ 87,900 price tag.
