The Karma GS-6 will three different models - Standard, Luxury, and Sport. Each one has different results for a 0-60 mph:
Standard & Luxury - 4.5 seconds
Sport – 3.9 seconds.

On Electric mode, the motor will use the 28-kWh lithium-ion battery pack, which can be charged fully in four hours on a standard Level 2 charger, or charge up to 90 percent in 34 minutes with a DC fast charger. 

The battery pack provides an EPA-rated electric-only range, depending on the wheels you choose on the first two models. You get 61 miles for models with 21-inch wheels or, 54 miles for models with 22-inch wheels(standard on the GS-6 Sport).  Karma GS-6 also comes with a BMW-sourced 1.5-liter turbocharged three-cylinder gasoline as a range extender.
