Karma unveiled the Revero GT at the Auto Shanghai in 2019, and it was a promise for those looking for a four-door sports car fitted with a hybrid drivetrain.
After Henrik Fisker failed to sell enough models of the Karma lineup that was launched in 2011, his company went bankrupt. But his ideas were good. Moreover, the design of his car was so good that almost a decade later, the re-born Karma brand, under new management, created the Revero lineup, starting with the GT version.
Like the Fisker Karma, the Revero GT featured elongated bodywork with a low engine compartment. The curved panels and arched lines created the image of a fluid. In addition, the four-door GT sported an ascending beltline towards the back of the car, onto the short trunk. At the front, the teardrop-shaped headlights featured LEDs and incorporated the daytime running lights, while the broad grille stretched wide into the bumper. A second lower grille found its place into the apron.
Inside, the automaker installed two high-bolstered bucket seats at the front, separated by a tall center console. A generous touchscreen display adorned the center stack, while a TFT display was on duty as an instrument panel. At the back, the automaker installed two separate seats, also divided by a tall console. Thus, the Karma GT provided four cozy seats, all leather-wrapped and hand-stitched.
The drivetrain consisted of a turbocharged inline-three supplied by BMW and acted like an onboard electric generator. The car's total driving range was up to 360 miles (580 km) on a single charge and a fuel tank of gas. It also provided an up to 80 miles (129 km) full-electric range.
