The Fisker Karma has achieved 83 km/51.6 miles in electric-only mode during independent fuel efficiency tests carried out by Europe’s regulatory body, the Technischer Überwachungs Verein (TÜV) (“De” (vehicle electric range) as defined by Annex 9 of ECE R101, “Method of measuring the electric range of vehicles powered by an electric powertrain only or by a hybrid electric powertrain”).
Earlier, the Karma received a US EPA rating having a 32-mile (51 km) all-electric range. EPA ratings are combined city/highway. (Earlier post.)
Fisker says that the TÜV carried out the most thorough tests yet of the Karma’s real-world urban 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.—Fisker Automotive CEO and co-founder Henrik Fisker
