More Fisker Bad News: EPA Calls 20-MPG Karma A Subcompact

"And the Bentley is only rated at 13 mpg combined by the EPA, making the Karma look fuel-efficient even at 20 mpg." Sure it does. All the bad news that Fisker has received is of his own making - there are plenty of other lies Fisker spouted that none of those "shoddy journalists" even mentioned. Now that the Volt sales have cratered, even if Fisker defies his own history and actually produces something remotely close to his claims, a range extended vehicle seems unlikely to prosper in the marketplace, given the recent disaster of the Volt. There is no plausible rationale for subsidizing either Fisker's $100K car or his "affordable" car. I'd love to hear an argument defending this ripoff of the taxpayers. Crony capitalism doesn't work.
