The Karma Revero is a premium plug-in range-extended electric luxury sports sedan manufactured by Karma Automotive. It is a revamped version of the Fisker Karma car. The first of the new production, for model year 2017, was released in September 2016.[1]

Background[edit]

The Revero predecessor was first introduced by Fisker Automotive as the Karma, in 2012. It was the only model produced by Fisker before it went out of business, in 2013. The tooling for the Fisker Karma were bought by Wanxiang in 2014. The tooling was moved from the factory in Finland to a new factory in Moreno Valley, California, USA.[2] About 1000 Fisker Karmas were built before production was stopped.[1][3] Karma's current headquarters reside in Irvine, California.[4]

History[edit]

The Fisker Karma was redesigned by Karma Automotive and reintroduced as the Revero. The 2017 Revero was launched on 8 September 2016 at Laguna Beach. The exterior of the Karma Revero is closely resembling that of the Fisker Karma, keeping the design produced by Henrik Fisker.[5] The Karma Revero car also won 2018's Green Luxury Car of the Year award from Green Car Journal.
