Several major news outlets, including the New York Times and the USA Today, joined the Wall Street Journal in heaping praise on the unconventional extended range electric vehicle last week. This new round of praise was occasioned by a series of test drives arranged by Fisker Automotive for members of the media. The majority of the reviews followed the already familiar line of praising the Karma’s innovative design and engineering while lamenting its lacking performance in batter-only mode. Overall, reviewers appreciated the Karma’s design and engineering prowess as well as the potential contribution it could make to increasing the attractiveness of electric vehicle for consumers. A contribution which would go a long way towards revitalizing public opinion regarding electric vehicles and their attractiveness.
