It looks like a fantastic future for the American manufacturer.
Karma is coming back and again is going to make a big fuss on the market of electric cars. After changing the name from Fisker Automotive and rebranding the flagship model to Revero GT, it’s time to reveal the plans for the future.
The first new model that the company has introduced is the Pininfarina GT, a beautiful electric coupe. As the name suggests, it was designed by the Italian studio Pininfarina, and the manufacturer says that it is the first result of long-term partnership.
The car was built on the basis of Revero GT, but thanks to the use of only one pair of doors and the replacement of all possible exterior elements, the car looks much more modern and sportier. The dimensions of the car have not changed significantly compared to the original. The Revero GT is 5064 mm long, 2162 mm wide and 1330 mm high.
The drive source are two electric motors with a total power of 543 hp (399 kW) and 1012 Nm of maximum torque. They sprint from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.9 seconds in Performance mode and 4.5 seconds in Luxury mode. The maximum speed is electronically limited to 155 mph (250 km/h). The drive is only transmitted to the rear axle.
On board you will find a set of batteries with a capacity of 28 kWh. This allows you to drive a maximum of 80 miles (130 kilometers) or 61 miles (98 km) according to the EPA cycle. This range can be extended by an additional 280 miles (450 km) due to the use of a 1.5-litre petrol engine with BMW i8, which is a full generator for charging the battery and is not directly connected to the drive axle.
At the moment, the model has not been announced for production, but if it gets warmly received by customers, we will certainly soon see it in the range.
