If the previous plug-in hybrids weren't fancy enough for you, it might help to take a look at a more luxurious model: the Fisker Karma, a full-size luxury sedan plug-in hybrid with an expected list price of $87,900. The company is currently taking pre-orders for the car, which it expects to deliver in 2010.
Similar to the Chevy Volt, the Karma uses a lithium-ion battery pack that provides a 50-mile (80.5-kilometer) all-electric driving range before a 260-horsepower Ecotec engine kicks in for a total driving range of 300 miles (482.8 kilometers). Two electric motors can push the plug-in hybrid from zero to 60 miles per hour (96.6 kilometers per hour) in about six seconds and achieve a top speed of 125 miles per hour (201.2 kilometers per hour). The whole powertrain comprises what Fisker calls Q-DRIVE, which it claims can give drivers efficiency greater than 100 miles per gallon (42.5 kilometers per liter).
