The Fisker Karma is a plug-in hybrid aimed at the luxury market. Its battery carries enough charge for 80 kilometers’ worth of driving before the internal-combustion engine kicks in. Running off battery power alone, the car can hit a top speed of 153 kilometers per hour; it can reach 200 kilometers per hour with the aid of the internal-combustion engine.
