Another green energy fail
The electric car Justin Bieber and Leonardo DiCaprio drive has failed the Consumer Reports test. Worst over-all luxury sedan.
Some of the things CR didn't like had nothing to do with the electric car aspect; things like cramped back seats. But you would not want to see them write, of an electric vehicle, "an engine that is noisy when running, long battery recharge times."
But then let's consider this statement from CR. "And credit Fisker, as a small, start-up company, for bringing the Karma to market. It is a feat that many other firms have attempted and failed at, underscoring why the auto industry is dominated by massive, well-established global corporations. "
How did they do it?
With $193 million dollars in taxpayer funding. As has been the case with other green energy products, the taxpayers cough up massive amounts of money, and the companies fail.
“Most Karmas are going to be bought by the rich and famous,” said the Consumer Reports reviewer. “That’s good, because they can afford another car to drive if their Fisker’s in the shop.”
