Fisker has released a promotional video of the luxury plug-in hybrid, the Fisker Karma. The car features two electric motors, which are powered by a 200kW lithium-ion battery pack that produces 300 kW (402 hp / 408 PS) and 1,300 Nm (959 lb/ft) of torque.

The battery pack allows the car to travel up to 50 miles before a 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine kicks in to recharge it. The car can accelerate from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in approximately six seconds, and has a top speed of 201 km/h (125 mph). It has an estimated combined fuel consumption rating of 2L/100km (117.6 mpg US).

The Karma, a four-door, four-seat luxury sports sedan, was unveiled at the Detroit auto show in January last year. It was scheduled to go on sale last year, but the sale was delayed for unspecified reasons. We can expect the car to be launched in 2011. The promotional video is here for you to see.
