There are three trims available on the Fisker Karma Hybrid Electric Sedan. They include the EcoStandard, EcoSport and EcoChic. The EcoStandard is the base trim and the top of the line is the EcoChic. All three features plenty of standard equipment to make this technologically rich vehicle stand out in the crowd of luxury hybrids.
The EcoStandard trim of the Fisker Karma Hybrid Electric Sedan begins with extra-large 22 inch wheels that only help the handling of the vehicle. Brembo brakes, parking sensors in the rear, a keyless entry and ignition system, xenon headlamps and a solar panel roof are all added to the package. The mirrors are both heated and automatically dimming and there is climate control that is automatic as well. The vehicle boasts cruise control, a steering wheel that tilts and telescopes and powered and heated seats. This trim offers a leatherette vinyl interior with wood accents. When it comes to technology there are several things that the vehicle offers. Bluetooth, a trip computer and a powerful sound system with satellite radio are among its technological benefits.
An upgrade to the EcoSport trim adds in actual leather upholstery and a navigation system. There is also a camera in the rear and an upgraded audio system. EcoChic boasts everything that is mentioned along with faux suede that has been recycled and other ecologically friendly materials in the cabin.
When it comes to safety, the Fisker Karma Hybrid Electric Sedan is designed to keep passengers safe when traveling. These features include stability control, traction control, antilock brakes and airbags throughout the vehicle.
Those who want an economical hybrid will likely find the Fisker Karma Hybrid Electric Sedan appealing. However, it is worth pausing to see if the company builds up the reputation that it needs to give buyers confidence. While there are many benefits to choosing the Karma, including a stylish design and great fuel economy, many people find that there are simply better options for this amount of money. The Fisker hybrid runs in the same price range and class as the Mercedes and Porsche hybrids and simply does not measure up in terms of offerings. Though it surpasses some hybrids on the market in terms of luxury and style, it lacks much of what one would expect from a costly vehicle.
