Chinese-backed Karma Automotive has revealed the new Revero GT, a heavily revised version of the hybrid saloon that was originally known as the Fisker Karma, as well as the new Pininfarina GT coupe and the SC1 Vision Concept.
The new Karma Revero GT features a redesigned bodywork and a new “world-class” hybrid electric powetrain that uses a BMW-sourced TwinPower Turbo three-cylinder petrol engine as a range-extender.
The combined output is claimed to be 528hp (535PS) while the battery pack comes with a capacity of 28kWh. Karma says that the new Revero GT offers 80 miles (128km) of pure electric range and a 0-62mph (100km/h) in 4.5 seconds.
Karma Automotive will launch the new Revero GT in Europe and the Middle East by next year, with China to follow in 2021, according to the company’s CEO Dr. Lance Zhou.
Karma Pininfarina GT Coupe
Created in collaboration with Pininfarina, the new GT Coupe is essentially a 2020 Revero GT with a brand new two-door bodywork on top, retaining the same hybrid electric powetrain. The seductive coupe, which also features a redesigned interior wrapped in white and off-white leathers, is finished in Bone Gray with a contrasting black roof.
Karma Automotive says that if there’s enough interest, they will put the Pininfarina GT Coupe into limited production, with Pininfarina to build them in their facilities in Italy.
Karma SC1 Vision Concept
Last but not least we have the SC1 Vision Concept, which was created to preview the brand’s future full-electric plans. The impressive electric roadster features clean lines and huge butterfly doors that when opened provide access to the luggage area as well.
The full electric study also features Karma’s future take on infotainment systems that includes 5G connectivity as well as touch, voice, eye and graphical interfaces for “seamless interaction” with the vehicle.
“Taken together, our Shanghai Big Three shows what Karma is today, what Karma can be tomorrow, and where Karma is heading in the future,” Zhou said.
