Nice mouse! You should think about turning the mouse into the real thing too!

I have a Fiskar, Tesla, and i3.

The i3 is the funnest to drive. It's like a go-cart. But it suffers from range issues (even with the extender engine), and it's twitchy on highways. (Also, by FAR the most reliable).

The Tesla (X) is the most "slick". It's powerful - like a mountain goat in the snow, easy and comfortable to drive, my kids love it. I've had my fair share of problems with it, but it is a very, very nice car.

But the Fiskar is the only car I _love_. Sure, the **** thing is constantly plagued with issues, and costs me a fortune to keep on the road, and it's not really good at basic stuff (like turning or parking). And, I can't drive it in winter, or in the rain, or anywhere but on a nice flat surface. But everywhere I go, it starts a conversation about electric cars. It beats the others for pure range and pure aesthetic beauty.

It's like dating a super model: all passion, no practicality, and I don't care. I'm in it for the love. (And I just have to own two other cars so I can get to where I need to be, lol).

Many Fisker owners use the ďdating a super modelĒ metaphor to describe the experuence. Extending the metaphor a bit too far, I would say that just like super models, each Karma is unique and has its own quirks and issues. This, IMHO, adds to their charm and magic. More so than any other car I have owned, the Karma puts a smile on my face every time I approach it to get in. 6.5 years in, and itís still a special experience.

I just acquired a BMW i8, as i would like to think, owning a karma and an i8 is the nearest thing to being in module crossover paradise as you can get, both are wonderful autos and ride pleasant...
