We're thrilled to announce the first production 2020 Karma Revero GT has come off the line. Our employees at the Karma Innovation and Customization Center (KICC) celebrated the arrival of our faster, smarter, more stunning luxury electric vehicle; assembled in beautiful Bodega Bay Blue. Located just 60 miles from our HQ in Moreno Valley, CA, KICC will provide production for the all-new Revero GT and future generation vehicles.
“Today we recognize the world-class craftsmanship that created our first 2020 Karma Revero GT,” said Karma CEO Dr. Lance Zhou. “Together with the hard work of our engineering team, and all Karma employees, we’ve created a product that, even in these very early stages, is winning in the press, with our customers and dealers.”The Revero GT is a true reflection of our luxury electric vehicle design and engineering capabilities. Karma artisans drew inspiration from Southern California’s rich aerospace industry, studying turbines and wing sections to influence new aspects of the Revero GT’s exterior design to create a tighter, smoother, and more sculpted silhouette.
Our engineers created a world-class electric drive system that, alongside a series of other technological advancements, enables the Revero GT to move as fast as it looks. Innovative and proprietary inverters capture direct current from an all-new 28kWh lithium-ion battery; converting it to alternating current to power dual synchronous traction motors for a combined 536hp. From the battery pack alone, drivers will enjoy up to 80 miles of emissions-free all-electric driving. Driving range is extended to 360 miles by the highly efficient onboard generator, a BMW TwinPower™ Turbo three-cylinder in-line engine. The car also qualifies for HOV-lane single occupancy in various states.
The newly designed suspension delivers precision handling at any speeds. A variable gear-ratio steering module and tightly honed suspension system quickly responds to the demands of the driver for a smooth, comfortable, and connected drive.
The Revero GT’s new electric architecture features an intuitive 12.3-inch digital display, 10.2-inch capacitive touch-screen digital audio with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ playback capability, heated leather steering wheel with 3D touch sensitive controls and active noise cancellation. In addition, a rear center high-mount taillight (chimsel) serves as both a LED brake light and state-of-charge display that illuminates when the Revero is plugged-in to provide a clear indication of charge status from outside the vehicle.
Beyond the standard paint, interior and wheel options, Revero GT proprietors can express themselves through our customization program. With our in-house Design Team, owners can co-create their car from more than 80 unique treatments that include 11 exterior hues, brake calipers colors, wheel options, 7 premium leather interior trims with special stitching and control panel jewels.
As the only automaker designing, engineering, assembling, and marketing luxury electric vehicles in Southern California, we proudly continue to create ultimate mobility experiences for a better future. Retailer showrooms are anticipating the arrival of our Revero GT in the fourth quarter of this year.
