The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Chevrolet Volt is the plug-in electric car you drive as far as you want--if you can find one to buy. The 2012 Fisker Karma is a curious and unique beast, a stylish, luxurious, and pricey sedan with 32 miles of electric range, low gasoline efficiency, and a tiny interior and trunk
