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.
