Fisker Plug-In Hybrid at COP15

15 December 2009

Fisker Plug-In Hybrid

Denmark’s Crown Prince HRH Frederik is the first individual outside the Fisker development team driving the new eco-friendly Fisker Karma. The Crown Prince will tomorrow travel to the COP15 UN Climate Conference events in Copenhagen with the plug-in hybrid car. HRH Frederik will visit at 4 pm Hopenhagen event at Raadhuspladsen after which he will leave in the Fisker Karma at 5 pm to the Bella Center.

The prototype saloon, developed by American automaker Fisker Automotive, can travel 80km (50mi) emission-free on a single charge of its Lithium-ion battery, and an additional 400km (250mi) on a range extending generator turned by an efficient fourcylinder gas engine. Economy is 2.4L/100km and emissions of just 83g/km CO2 – better than today’s best hybrids. Still, the Karma can reach 100km/h (62mph) in about 6 seconds and exceed 200km/h (125mph).

Fisker Automotive from California is led by Danish auto designer Henrik Fisker, who also designed the BMW Z8, Aston Martin DB9 and Aston Martin V8 Vantage.

The company was recently approved for a USD 528.7-million conditional loan from the U.S. Government and announced its intent to purchase an assembly plant from General Motors.
