Re: Fisker Karma Hybrid Car

I've seen this thing at a local car show. One thing that worries me is if you have a bad accident and you can't get out of your car, if the crash is hard the L-ion battery will catch fire from whats been shown in tests, what do you do, just go up in flames with the car!! This fisker has a design flaw IMHO, it has push button door locks and if the electrical is down how do you open the door. With the posted electrical problems and other issues with this car i'm not sure if I trust it.

Re: Fisker Karma Hybrid Car

Its a new car and company so it will take a while for them to work out the bugs etc, which I'm sure they will.

Re: Fisker Karma Hybrid Car

I think this Fisker Karma Hybrid is awesome. But by the looks of it, it doesn't have much difference from the no hydrid F.Karma

Right, you're MUCH safer with 20 gallons of fuel strapped under your back seat!
