The 2012-ish (2013) Fisker Surf Shooting Brake

If there were three eco-responsible cars to look forward to in the coming years, they would be the Tesla Model S, the BMW i-Series, and this car here, the Fisker Surf – a shooting brake (nee ‘Wagon’) version of the Fisker Karma (ok, that makes four cars to look forward to.)

The Fiskers are plug-in hybrids which mean that they charge much like the Chevy Volt. When the batteries run low at 50 miles, a BMW-sourced turbocharged 4 cylinder will get you up to an additional 250 miles before needed a recharge or refuel.

Fisker is hinting at a late 2012 start date for production of both the Karma and the Surf. The safe bet is for a 2013 debut.

Fisker Surf

The dramatic contours of the Fisker Karma gets translated into shooting brake form with the debut of the company’s second model, the Fisker Surf. The high end hybrid will be powered by the same engine as the Karma, a 2.0 liter 255 hp four-cylinder that works in conjunction with a lithium-ion battery system that gives the car a range of about 300 miles and a 0-60 time of 6.3 seconds.
