achieved 83 km/51.6 miles running in silence on electric-only mode during
independent fuel efficiency tests carried out by Europe’s regulatory body,
the Technischer Ueberwachungs Verein (TUV) today (“De” according
Annex 9 of ECE R 101).
The TUV have carried out the most thorough tests yet of the Karma’s realworld urban performance. This is an independent process that measures
every element of the Fisker Karma luxury plug-in hybrid’s performance.
“We are delighted that the TUV has confirmed that most owners will
achieve a 50 mile range running purely on electric during their daily
commute,” said Fisker Automotive CEO and co-founder Henrik Fisker.
