Here's a little brief note from the Frankfurt Auto Show.
We've already told you plenty about the Fisker
Karma range-extender hybrid. The sedan can travel for roughly 50 miles on
battery power alone after which its turbocharged four-cylinder engine kicks in
to keep the battery pack charged.
Now, Fisker is showing off the shooting brake version of the
Karma. The new Fisker
Surf looks like the Karma from the front doors forward, but has a hatchback
tacked onto the rear of the body. Like Autoblog
(which broke the story on the Surf), we find that rear lines of the vehicle
look quite similar to Ferrari's
equally outlandish FF.
This comparison isn’t lost on one Fisker executive who
stated, "It'll be like the FF but
with four doors and at one-third the price."
The added bodywork and glass raises the curb weight by 77
pounds to 4,440 pounds. Likewise, maximum cargo space rises from 7.1 cubic feet
to 29 feet.
For those looking to get their hands on a Surf, the entry
price will be well over $100,000.
