2020 Karma Revero GT Looks To Honor The Iconic P-51 Mustang Fighter Plane

These two 2020 Karma Revero GT models have been wrapped to honor the iconic P-51 Mustang, a single engine fighter plane built in 1940 in Inglewood, California. Both cars feature wraps and calipers inspired by the aircraft’s red, yellow, grey and silver designs.

The two hybrid-electric vehicles have embarked on a 3,000-mile (4,828 km) journey at goldRush Rally Eleven, and were even on display this past weekend at Fontainebleau Miami Beach in Florida.

Much like with the P-51, Karma also wished for the 2020 Revero to feature excellent speed and an extended range. The four-door GT will hit 60 mph (96 km/h) from a standstill in just 4.5 seconds, nearly a full second quicker than its predecessor.

It also comes with a new TwinPower Turbo three-cylinder in-line engine supplied by BMW, meant to power an on-board electric generator and enhance overall performance. Meanwhile, its dual electric motors put down 536 PS (528 HP), whereas the 28kWh mid-mounted lithium-ion battery generates up to 80 miles (128 km) of all-electric range, and up to 360 miles (579 km) in total combined with the on-board generator.

The two specially-wrapped pre-production Revero GTs will be on the road for a total of nine days, driving from Miami, Florida to Austin, Texas.

As the direct successor to the old Fisker Karma, the new 2020 Revero GT wishes to position itself as a Tesla Model S rival, yet its powertrain, as you can see, is not fully electric. However, Karma Automotive claims that by using an internal combustion engine as a range extender, the vehicle will offer its buyers “the best of both worlds – extended EV capability without range anxiety.”

      I personally favor the looks of the original 2008 Concept & 2010/2012-2013/2014 Production Model (pre-Karma Automotive), but I definitely agree.

      When vehicles are based on concept cars. I wish that throughout the lifetime of the vehicles production, they would make the vehicle more and more like the concept/concepts that inspired them.
      I personally wish this was the case, in the case of the original Fisker Karma (before bankruptcy) and what Karma (who bought all of Fiskers assets, to produce the Revero) had done.
      Ahh, when the original Fisker Karma Prototype (‘Concept’) was revealed. When 50 miles of pure Electric Range was a lot, & Plug-In Hybrids were on their way to becoming the next generation petrol vehicles.

      When it came out, this vehicle made headlines across, and frankly (in a time when the Toyota Prius was the most eco-friendly thing around) This was Big.

  • THEY CLEANED UP THE DESIGN BUT IT’S JUST ANOTHER HYBRID AT A TIME WHEN FULL EV’S ARE WHERE IT’S AT IF YOU WANT TO GAIN ATTENTION IN THE AUTO WORLD.

      Plug-In Hybrid to be exact (and do note there are many types of hybrid vehicles), but the original intent of the vehicle was not ‘how much range‘ can you get, but rather how it impacts the environment. Originally released in a world of gasoline vehicles, a plug-in hybrid (the first in the luxury automotive space), needing to only go to the gas station once every few months was something other worldly.

      I’m not agreeing with yourself, but I also will not state that you are wrong.
