Since its inception five years ago, Southern California-based KARMA Automotive has aimed to help shape the future of driving through its vehicles and business direction. With the 2020 luxury electric hybrid KARMA Revero GT, KARMA Automotive offers new levels of innovation by utilizing improved design, technology and performance capabilities for higher functionality.
The 2020 KARMA Revero GT is an electric hybrid vehicle that the company calls “a bridge to the future.” KARMA’s team of designers and engineers worked on the new car to provide essential redesign, technology improvements and elevated aesthetics. The new Revero is now 357 pounds lighter due to its aluminum base structure, and a refined dual-motor electric propulsion system that increases all-electric range up to 80 miles when fully charged.
A BMW TwinPower Turbo, three-cylinder, in-line engine powers an on-board electric generator to keep the Revero going for up to an additional 280 miles, giving the car a total range of up to 360 miles. The enhanced technology found in the 2020 Revero GT also improves zero to 60 miles per hour performance; the car will hit that mark in 4.5 seconds, nearly a full second faster than the model it replaces.
“We created a world-class electric vehicle drive system that delivers the performance and packaging requirements of the new Revero,” says Bob Kruse, KARMA’s Chief Technology Officer. “Alongside a series of other technological advancements, the new 2020 Revero is as fast as it looks.”
In terms of interior design and function, KARMA Revero’s interior comes with six-way adjustable seats. Each vehicle can be customized to the customer’s liking as the Scottish leather comes in eight different colors and three multi-colored themes. The Revero is equipped with features like 3-D touch steering wheel controls, parking assist and an eight-speaker audio system for a quality driving experience. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Amazon Alexa and Google Home help Reverso drivers and riders stay connected on the road.
“The KARMA brand is driven in part by owner experiences that are both personal and special,” says John Maloney, KARMA’s Chief Revenue Officer. “We believe ownership is about more than just our beautiful Revero GT—it’s about becoming part of our brand and connecting with those who stand behind it.”

Origin Story: The original KARMA Revero was based on the Fisker Karma, incorporating much of its original design and aesthetic.
