I rode into Raleigh North Carolina on Amtrak train 79 the Carolinian. While driving from station to hotel we saw 2 Nissan LEAF electric cars. Then when we pulled into Doubletree By Hilton – I saw something I hadn’t seen since Thursday January 26th 2012 – a Fisker Karma – plug-in hybrid ( electric gas combo ) sports car.
I had only seen one other Fisker Karma. At an electric car event in Normal Illinois. I’d never seen one in the “wild”. This find is pretty rare – considering company no longer produces this car and not many were manufactured. Didn’t see it parked there again during our 3 day stay.
My low quality video recorded Thursday January 26th 2012 with a photo camera at Normal Illinois ( EV Town ) electric car event. Fisker Karma shown at time marker 3:10.
