Consumer Reports: Fisker Karma the Worst Luxury Sedan | National Legal and Policy Center
It’s been six months since the taxpayer-subsidized ($193 million) Fisker Karma broke down at the test facilities of Consumer Reports before the publication could even take it for a review spin, but now the researchers have finally been able to put the luxury electric car through its paces and their assessment is complete.
Why did it take so long for the car loved by Leonardo DiCaprio, Justin Bieber and Al Gore to get the full evaluation?
...At $193 million, we can at least boast that we played a small part in the creation of this stellar car, and helped fulfill President Obama’s vision of 1 million electric cars on the road by 2015.
“Most Karmas are going to be bought by the rich and famous,” said the Consumer Reports reviewer. “That’s good, because they can afford another car to drive if their Fisker’s in the shop.”
