There’s no denying, that the Fisker Karma is the best-looking electric vehicle to hit the market this year. After many delays, the production finally kicked in yesterday at Valmet’s plant in Finland. Fisker plans to build 7,000 cars this year, with first deliveries to begin already next month.

Fisker will also start the production in Wilmington, Delaware next year, where the smaller midsize plug-in hybrid called Nina will be produced as well.

The Karma is powered by dual electric rear motorswith a combined power output of 403bhp. The 20kW lithium-ion battery offers a range of up to 50 miles before a turbocharged 2.0 litre petrol engine kicks in to recharge it. Overall range with a full tank of petrol is up to 300 miles and Fisker promises an average fuel consumption of 117 mpg and CO2 emissions of 83 g/km.

No word on the UK pricing yet, but most likely it will be priced at around £70,000.
