EPA Reveals Karma Revero Has Just 240 Miles Of Range

The EPA has released figures confirming the range of the Karma Revero and it seems that the world may have been better off if the Fisker Karma was never re-born.

Throughout its media campaign to promote the Revero, Karma consistently claimed that it would have an electric and petrol range of around 300 miles (483km) and 50 miles (80km) of pure-electric range. However, the EPA’s figures reveal that neither of those claims are true.

Over the combined cycle, the EPA’s all-electric range sits at 37 miles (60km) and its total PHEV range is just 240 miles (386km). What’s more, the Revero is the only 2018MY PHEV where owners will spend more (+$500) on fuel over a 5-year period than the average new car on sale. Last but not least, MPGe figures sit at a lackluster 34 MPGe city, 37 MPGe highway and 35 MPGe combined, InsideEVs reports.

Compared to the six-year old Fisker Karma, the Revero only achieves four additional miles of electric range and its total range remains identical at 240 miles. This comes despite the huge advances in battery technology over the last six years.

What’s more, the Revero is more expensive than the Karma was, starting at around $130,000.

    Some cars just seem to be jinxed from the beginning don’t they? Anyone remember the De Tomaso Biguà, AKA De Tomaso Mangusta AKA Qvale Mangusta AKA MG XPowerSV? Similar story.

    We all saw this coming. Henrik Fisker is a conniving businessman with a sham brand in an attempt to steal interest away from Tesla. Sorry Fisker, your bs has been called out before and now it’s more apparent than ever. I hope your car enjoys a slow death as the hype fizzles before it can even hit the road.

      Do you realize this has nothing to do with Fisker now ?

    34 MPGe ain’t bad.

  • donald seymour

    Okay, I’m confused. How does it only gets 240 electric and gas combined when the MPGe is 34 city?

    • eb110americana

      Because it’s MPG*e* not MPG. MPGe is a useless metric that the EPA insists on rating, and it confuses most people just as it has with you. 34 MPGe says that the car can go 34 miles on the electrical equivalent of the energy in a gallon of gas. That is only rating the batteries and the electric powertrain. When running on the engine (not plugged in), it probably gets under 20 mpg in the city. It also probably has a relatively small gas tank to make room for batteries.

        Thanks for clearing that up. So, if our assuming is right concerning the gas tank, than what this entails is that the engineering is counter intuitive, which is a shame.

    Karma (Fiskar) engineers have a serious tunnel vision issues thinking this vehicle will succeed. This vehicle is stuck in 2005.

    But it’s pretty and that fixes everything, right? right? right? Just drop a LS1 V8 in there or turbo diesel.
