Video: Fisker Karma heads to Jay Leno’s Garage

Jay Leno may be losing his touch. The Fisker Karma made its debut a few months ago and the car has only now made it into the late night talk show host’s garage for inspection. Of course, they could have been waiting for all of their ducks to be in a row, considering the vehicle showed up with the founder of the company — and former Aston Martin designer - Henrik Fisker.

The video is 20 minutes long and in it, Fisker explains the technology behind this impressive hybrid sedan in detail, as well as talks about the story behind this $95,900 luxury sedan.

Refresher: The Fisker Karma is a plug-in hybrid that uses a lithium-ion battery pack to power two 200+ hp electric motors for about 50 miles. Fisker says the Karma achieves the 0 to 60 mph sprint in less than 6 seconds and can hit a top speed of more than 125 mph.

This Fisker Karma is unlike any electric car that is kind of slow because of low dynamics; instead, it’s pretty speedy. Moreover, it features an eco-friendly performance.

Electric cars are usually eco-friendly but slow and safe. This one is sort of fast, and innovative technology is clearly seen to be applied. The price, as expected, is high but that’s pretty much of the standards.

It’s good to know that Fisher Karma is a plug-in hybrid that uses lithium-ion battery pack. This could be helpful in our environment. The top speed of this has a greater performance more than I’ll ever know.

Wow! This one costs $95,900? That was pretty pricey too. And too good that this will be heading on Jay Leno’s garage for a quite time time. They really fit: Jay Leno and Fisker Karma.
