Fisker Karma Debuts at Laguna Seca (w/Video)

The Fisker Karma plug-in hybrid electric vehicle made its public driving debut this weekend at the annual Monterey Historic Automobile Races at Laguna Seca Raceway in California. Eye witness accounts say the Karma did one demonstration lap of the track before returning to the infield to be surrounded by an admiring crowd.

According to the company, the car is on schedule to be available for sale in May of 2010, with over 1,000 pre-orders already taken. The car is currently scheduled for official U.S. Government crash testing in the coming weeks. The Fisker Karma, which produces more torque than a $492,000 SL 65 AMG V12 BITURBO, is expected to carry a sticker price of $90,000 and the company expect to make 15,000 of the plug-in hybrids per year.
