With SEMA winding down, attention is turning to the Los Angeles Auto Show.
Karma Automotive will have a sizable presence at this year’s event and the company has released the first teaser image of a new concept.
Dubbed the SC2, the concept will be unveiled on November 19th and is being billed as an “evolution” of the SC1 Vision concept that debuted earlier this year. The company is keeping details under wraps, but the teaser image suggests the model will be a stylish coupe that features gullwing doors. We can also see digital side mirrors, curvaceous bodywork and a small trunk. The roof also appears to act as a spoiler and the rear end has a full-width LED light bar.
Little else is known about the concept, but the SC1 was a two-seat roadster that hinted at the company’s future styling language. The model was also a pure electric vehicle and the SC2 will likely use the same powertrain.
Besides introducing the concept, Karma will unveil the Revero GTS. It’s billed as a “performance version” of the standard Revero GT.
The company didn’t elaborate, but previous reports have said the Revero GTS will have an upgraded interior, special wheels and a hotter powertrain. The latter should enable the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 3.5 seconds.
There’s no word on specifics, but the standard Revero GT has two electric motors that produce a combined output of 536 hp (400 kW / 543 PS) and 1,100 lb-ft (1,491 Nm) of torque. They enable the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 4.5 seconds, before hitting a limited top speed of 125 mph (201 km/h).
The motors are powered by a 28 kWh lithium-ion battery pack and this enables the car to travel up to 80 miles (129 km) on electricity alone. Since that isn’t very far, the Revero is also equipped with a BMW-sourced 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine that acts as a generator and extends the overall driving range up to 360 miles (579 km).
