Quantum Fuel Systems Technologies Worldwide, Inc. (QTWW) Quantum-Powered Fisker Karma Featured in Robb Report

Quantum Fuel Systems, a fully integrated alternative energy company and leader in the development and production of advanced propulsion systems, energy storage technologies, and alternative fuel vehicles, announced that Quantum-powered Fisker Karma, a high-performance hybrid sports sedan built through a partnership with Fisker Automotive, has been featured in the April 2008 edition of the Robb Report Collection.

Henrik Fisker, CEO of Fisker Automotive, is the Danish designer of the “eco-chic” hybrid design which runs on Quantum Technologies’ “Q-Drive,” a fully electric-powered system that offers zero-emissions, no compromise on power, achieves 100 miles per gallon, and a hybrid propulsion system configured with a small gasoline engine used solely to power an electric generator that charges a lithium-ion battery pack. The advanced propulsion system can take the Karma from 0 to 60 mph in 5.8 seconds, reaching speeds in excess of 125 mph.

The Q-Drive technology will offer a base for all future derivatives from Fisker Automotive and move Quantum Fuel Systems one-step closer to its goal of becoming the premier, fully integrated alternative energy company. Fisker Karma will also incorporate Quantum-Asola’s solar roof, produced through Quantum’s partner, Asola.

Fisker plans to deliver 100 luxury hybrids by the end of 2009 and full production is expected to commence in 2010.
