Reduction of pollution can be done on a large scale by electric cars. But till today, all electric cars were mostly small and looked more or less like a toy. So, not many people were interested in buying electric cars. But today, you can buy a luxury electric car. After president Obama said that he would like to see a million electric cars before the end of his presidency, inventors started to think of ways to make electric cars more popular.
The Fisker Karma is finally here. In the year 2008, Aston Martin designer Henrick Fisker, gave his designs for the Fisker karma. But the launched was supposed to happen in the year 2009. Due to financial interruptions, the launched kept on being rescheduled. After 2009, there was not much buzz about this car. But finally, in the year 2012, it was finally launched and now it’s in full production. Being an electric car doesn’t hold back the Fisker Karma in any way. It has a 2l direct injection technique with a turn charged 4 cylinder gasoline engines. It is a soaring end PHEV. For an electric car that is pretty good.
Also it uses about 257 horsepower, but in spite of some minor drawbacks, it is a highly efficient car. After 8 hours of battery charging it can run up to 300 miles. It did not get much acclamation due to poor marketing and people are still under the misconception that electric cars can’t be classy and luxurious. The Fisker Karma is here to change that conception so it is your turn to give this majestic electric car a chance. You will also feel less guilty as you can drive without causing any pollution.

2011 Chrsyler Sebring Price, Review & Picture
2011 Chrsyler Sebring Price, Review & Picture – New Car Reviews, Chrysler has updated the Sebring for 2011 with improved interior materials and fit and finish, including a new instrument panel cluster. Active head restraints have also been added to the Sebring. If seeking an example of how things went wrong for Chrysler while under the control of Daimler, the Sebring is a prime example. A decade ago, the Sebring convertible and the Cirrus sedan were handsome and capable cars. Following DaimlerChryslers management, the midsized cars were viciously cost cut. What’s more, the formerly esteemed design crew was passed off to Trevor Creed, an unimaginative, uncreative “yes-man.”
Now Chrysler is led by Sergio Marchionne; what is in the company’s future now? Innovation and novel designs are in the future. Chrysler has been implementing midcycle alterations for its US entry model; this is a vita segment for the car’s debut since 2007.
The Sebring is slated for a new exterior and interior design. In addition, the carmaker will be giving the car brand new dynamics. For the time being, car seekers can get the Sebring at hefty discounts, and deals are being offered on the leftover 2010 Sebring convertibles and sedans. No doubt, discounts will prove steep. For the car seeker on a shoestring budget, the soon to be outmoded Sebrings are ideal.
For the 2011 model, Chrysler smoothed out the hood strakes that were designed to become part of the brand’s “design language.” The convertible is available with a conventional soft top or a folding metal hardtop. The 2011 model Sebring benefits from a new instrument panel cluster and active head restraints. Tortoise shell accents cribbed from the 300 are available, and the convertible has been designed for optimum rear seat space.
Ride and handling for are about average for cars in this segment, though Sebring falls short in terms of refinement. You’ll find marginally acceptable levels of cowl shake in the convertible. Horsepower is 173 for the four-cylinder and 186 for the DOHC 2.7-liter V-6, which is available only in the convertible. The 3.5-liter makes 235 horsepower.
Both the sedan and convertible have advanced multi-stage airbags, electronic stability control and interior head impact protection. The convertible adds front-seat mounted side airbags, while the sedan has supplemental side curtain airbags and brake assist.
