2020 Karma Revero Teased, Will Be Faster Than Its Predecessor

Karma Automotive has released the first teaser image of the 2020 Revero, ahead of its debut at the Shanghai Auto Show next month.

The teaser isn’t very revealing, but it shows the Revero will have an evolutionary design with restyled headlights. That isn’t much to go on, but Karma said we can expect an “even more stunning” design than its predecessor.

While Karma describes the 2020 Revero as “all-new,” previous spy photos have suggested this isn’t necessarily the case. Instead, it appears the car will be getting a minor facelift that focuses on updating the front and rear fascias. This is long overdue as the original Fisker Karma debuted at the 2008 North American International Auto Show and its design hasn’t changed much in the past 11 years.

The updated Revero will go on sale in the second half of 2019 and the company says the car will be smarter and faster than its predecessor. This statement suggests the model could be getting an upgraded powertrain, but there’s no word on specifics.

The current model has two electric motors which develop 403 hp (301 kW / 409 PS) and 981 lb-ft (1,329 Nm) of torque. This setup enables the Revero to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 5.4 seconds, before hitting an electronically limited top speed of 125 mph (201 km/h).

Thanks to it’s 20.8 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, the Revero can travel up to 50 miles (80 km) on electricity alone. The model also has a range-extending engine that enables the car to travel up to 300 miles (483 km) overall.

Besides teasing the 2020 Revero, Karma celebrated its fifth anniversary by highlighting their new powertrain testing lab in Irvine, California. The lab features a traction dynamometer, electric motor dynamometer and an engine/generator test cell. The company says the new equipment will enable them to test electric motors, generators and range-extended powertrains in-house.

    Back when this debuted with the Model S, it was hands down the winner in my book but time has just not been kind to the Karma which is sad.

  • Dude

    Please, please actually fix it this time. It’s such a beautiful and unique car.

  • Ok this car looks good, but it’s a bad car, how many times is it going to survive? Should be called Phoenix. Just make a new one.
