One of the first to get his Karma is Ray Lane, the Chairman of the Board of Fisker Automotive, Chairman of Carnegie Mellon University and also Hewlett-Packard Corporation. He also serves as Vice Chairman of Special Olympics International
Before we go on and see what the executive had to say about the car (and let you see the video of the special moment), we'll remind you that it is powered by two electric motors that produce 408 hp and 1,300 Nm (959 lb-ft) of torque, which are sent to the road via the rear axle.
The vehicle can complete the 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint in 5.9 seconds and offers a top speed of 200 km/h (124 mph). When the batery runs out of juice, a 2.0-liter petrol engine kicks in to recharge it.
"To be one of the first to have a Fisker Karma in the World is a uniquely satisfying honor for me. Our country, and our business environment - especially here in the Silicon Valley - has been inspired by those who dream and then commit themselves to making their passion real. Henrik Fisker and his devoted team have done just that- combining my passion for driving and the environment," Lane said.
"This is so much more than just another car. The Fisker Karma represents a new era for the automotive industry and I am proud to be driving the dream of all those who have worked so hard to bring this uniquely green and elegant vehicle to market," the executive concluded.
