The tests also validated the Karma’s all-electric range at 51.6 miles.

The Karma is a 400hp luxury sedan that can accelerate from 0-60mph in 6.1 seconds, is one of the most efficient, lowest emission automobiles available despite its size, performance and visual appeal.

The figures are possible with the Karma’s cutting-edge EVer (Electric Vehicle extended range) powertrain technology, which combines the zero-emissions and efficiency of electric drive with the range and freedom of gasoline-powered cars.

Technically a series plug-in hybrid, the Karma gives drivers the ability to run emissions free on demand, as well as travelling long distances without the range anxiety or long re-charge times associated with electric-only vehicles.

While the Karma can run on all-electric power in Stealth mode for 51.6 miles, it has a total range of 300 miles before stopping for gas or a re-charge is required.

When driven in charge-sustaining Sport mode, the Karma achieved 25.8mpg combined fuel economy in TüV tests, better than nearly all comparably powered luxury sedans.
