Fisker Karma (2011-present)
Why is Fisker Karma an American composite supercar? Mainly because other supercars like the Hennessey Venom GT aren’t fuel efficient. The California-born Fisker Karma dubbed itself the “first true electric luxury vehicle with extended range” and is capable of 112 mpg. It originally debuted at the 2008 North American International Auto Show and recently won the first People’s Choice Award at ACMA’s COMPOSITES 2012. Continental Structural Plastics in Troy, Mich., provides Fisker with low-cost SMC body panels and headlamp carriers. It uses an advanced proprietary manufacturing technique to supply lightweight, geometrically complex parts for the hybrid plug-in that help increase fuel efficiency.
