Karma Revero GT got the highest range rating among PHEVs aside from the BMW i3 REx.
It's official, the 2020 Karma Revero GT range/efficiency was listed by the EPA and the all-electric range is 61 miles (98 km) - the new high for PHEVs.
Compared to the previous generation the improvement is significant, as EV range increased by 65% while the total range went up by 37.5%. The original Karma probably was simply far from unleashing the full potential of a series-hybrid with plug-in capability.
Despite the range being very high for a PHEV, the efficiency is still poor - it will be difficult to improve it further as the Revero GT is all about the design and performance rather than going green.
