The car is said to be using a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder gasoline engine, from BMW and car will feature rear wheel drive, but Fisker will also provide an all-wheel drive version.
In terms of looks, it resembles the previous Karma, but it’s a bit more compact. It boasts a large glass roof and fastback package with secluded rear door handles.

The manufacturers declared they’re extremely happy and proud about their newest brainchild.
