Fisker has unveiled the first factory-built Karma at the Paris Motor Show.

Made by Finnish-based Valmet Automotive, the Karma features two electric motors that produce 300 kW (402 hp / 408 PS) and 1,300 Nm (959 lb/ft) of torque. They are powered by a 20kW lithium-ion battery pack, which allows the car to travel up to 80.5 km (50 miles) before a turbocharged 2.0-liter petrol engine kicks in to recharge it.

In terms of performance, the Karma accelerates from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.9 seconds, hits a top speed of 200 km/h (124 mph) and has an average fuel consumption rating of 2.4L/100km (98 mpg US).

Sadly, Fisker hasn't revealed a launch date. There have been rumors that 100 models would be made by the end of the year but, frankly, we're not getting our hopes up.
