Karma Automotive has officially launched the Revero, which starts at $130,000.
Based on the Fisker Karma, the Karma Revero is still a plug-in hybrid luxury sedan, but its new pricing is a bit of a leap compared to the previous Karma, which started at $103,000. While the car retains much of the same design and a turbocharged four-cylinder engine sourced from GM with 260 horsepower, its electric powertrain has been revamped with DC fast charging at 40 kW now available. The onboard charger has also been upgraded from 3.3 kW to 6.6 kW.
The Karma Revero will continue to use A123 battery cells, but capacity has increased slightly from 20.4 kWh to 21.4 kWh, providing an all-electric range of about 50 miles (80 kilometers). The zero-to-60 time is estimated to be 5.4 seconds, while the top speed will be electronically limited to 125 mph (201 km/h).

A brochure on the car has been posted on the company’s website, highlighting that the solar roof remains on the Revero. The roof can supposedly “generate up to 1.5 miles of electric range per day, depending on weather conditions.” The brochure also shows off the updated and more luxurious interior, which should help warrant the price increase. There is also a new infotainment system that is capable of receiving over-the-air updates like Tesla vehicles, and one of the first updates will enable Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
Production for the Karma Revero will start at the end of the year with an estimated 900 units produced in its first year.
