Fisker sets two EV world records with the Karma image

Fisker Automotive has announced that two EV world records have been set with the Karma model during an even held by the company’s Dutch retailer, Fisker Nederland.

According to the car manufacturer, the “Highest Number of Single-Branded Electric Vehicles to be Charged Simultaneously” record is now being held by the Fisker Karma after 45 units of the model were charged at the same time. The same vehicles managed to get a record for the “Highest Number of Mixed-Brand Electric Vehicles to be Charged Simultaneously” too, with a total of 50 cars. The two records have been confirmed by a Dutch foundation promoting electric driving named Stitching E-Lead.

As a quick reminder, the Fisker Karma is coming with a 20 kW lithium-ion battery which is powering the two electric motors in order to develop a total output of 402 horsepower and 1.300 Nm of torque (959 lb-ft). The sedan can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.2 seconds before reaching a top speed of 200 km/h (124 mph). A 2.0 liter turbocharged petrol engine will act as a generator when the battery is depleted and the model can travel up to 83 km (52 miles) on electricity alone, having an overall range of 483 km (300 miles) and averaging 2.5L/100km (112 mpg UK) while emitting 51 grams of CO2 every kilometer.
