Justin Bieber reached driving age two years ago. But only now, as he turns 18, is he getting the car of his dreams. Celebrating his milestone birthday, his manager and Usher decided to get him a very nice birthday present that was given to him on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“You work really really hard,” his manager, Scooter Braun said on the show. “I always yell at you, ‘Don’t get anything flashy you know, we’re not about that. Be humble, be humble.’ And I kind of broke my own rule.”
Following that statement, Justin was presented with the Fisker Karma.
“We wanted to make sure, since you love cars, that when you’re on the road you are always environmentally friendly,” Burn said. “And we decided to get you a car that would make you stand out … I think you know where I’m going, and you’re kind of freaking out right now. That’s Fiskar Karma.”
For the record, in the video Bieber asks if the Karma is fully electric, to which his manager replies ‘yes’ – but the Karma is not fully-electric and is a range-extended plug-in hybrid.
Refresher – Power for the Fisker Karmacomes from Fisker’s Q-DRIVE system, which is made up of two 201-hp electric-motors that are powered by a lithium-ion battery pack. That allows the 2010 Karma to travel up to 80 kilometres without the use of any gasoline. A generator attached to a 260-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter Ecotec direct injection engine provides an extended range of up to 480 kilometres. 0 to 100 kph comes in 5.8 seconds with a top speed of 200 kph. The Karma’s battery can be recharged in less than 6 hours using the same 240v household current.
