First Non-Fisker Employee to Drive the Karma PHEV
Henrik Fisker, the founder of Fisker Automotive, was born in Denmark, home of the COP15 climate conference. We're not sure if he had a royal connection or if it is the Danish crown prince Frederik himself who asked Fisker for a ride, but it looks like the Prince is going to be driving a Karma plug-in hybrid to the conference.HRH Frederik will visit at 4 pm Hopenhagen event at Raadhuspladsen after which he will leave in the Fisker Karma at 5 pm to the Bella Center.

Here's the obligatory info about the Karma, for those who don't already know this by heart:

The prototype saloon, developed by American automaker Fisker Automotive, can travel 80km (50mi) emission-free on a single charge of its Lithium-ion battery, and an additional 400km (250mi) on a range extending generator turned by an efficient fourcylinder gas engine. Economy is 2.4L/100km and emissions of just 83g/km CO2 - better than today's best hybrids. Still, the Karma can reach 100km/h (62mph) in about 6 seconds and exceed 200km/h (125mph).

More photos of the Karma electric car in Denmark can be found here.

Maybe next time the crown prince can be even greener and go on a bicycle (which would make a lot of sense in Copenhagen)?
