Karma makes its GT even sportier.

Karma Automotive announced the availability of two new packages for its Revero GT plug-in hybrid: the Sports package and Performance package, which both bring functional and visual upgrades.

By applying one of those two packages, the GT is turned into GTS (gets a "GTS" badge) and will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds (instead of 4.5 seconds in the case of the GT) thanks to higher torque motors. It offers better handling too.

The Sports package includes:

  • Exterior: a Borrego Black paint as standard, with chrome blackout and lightweight carbon fiber exterior pieces, GTS fender badges, red calipers, cross-drilled rotors, and 22” Dune Twist Midnight Chrome wheels
  • Interior: a similar blackout Karma badge is placed on the steering wheel, complemented by a sleek carbon fiber trim throughout the cabin. GTS insignia is respectfully placed upon the center console and UX/UI display, a subtle nod to the vehicle’s performance enhancements

The Performance package includes:

  • all the functional upgrades of the Sports package, while maintaining the original exterior of the Revero GT
  • Inside the cabin, a GTS emblem in the performance-oriented UX/UI, including a special Track Mode

The starting price of the Karma Revero GT increased from $135,000 initially (+ $1,400 DST) to $144,800 (+$1,800 DST). We are not sure whether the upgrade from GT to GTS is still priced at $14,950 announced in late 2019, but for sure it will remain expensive. Both models are eligible for the $7,500 federal tax credit.

Karma Revero GTS differences compared to GT:

  • 0-60 mph in 3.9 seconds
  • top speed of 130 mph (209 km/h)

2020 Karma Revero GT specs (compared to 2018 Revero):

  • 28 kWh battery (instead 21.4 kWh)
  • 61 miles (98 km) of all-electric range EPA range (Revero 37 miles EPA)
  • 330 miles (531 km) of total range
  • 0-60 mph (96.5 km/h) in 4.5 seconds (Revero 5.4 seconds)
  • 1.5L BMW TwinPower Turbo three-cylinder in-line engine (same as in BMW i8) as onboard generator (previously 2L GM engine)
  • dual-motor rear-wheel drive (with torque vectoring for rear wheels)
  • system output of 400 kW (535 hp) and 746 Nm peak (two 200 kW and 370 Nm electric motors)
  • top speed of 125 miles (201 km/h)
  • weight of 5,050 lbs / 2,291 kg (instead of 5,407 lbs / 2453 kg)

Karma’s signature badge, a solar eclipse, is notably monochrome, indicating a special high-performance variant — a unique design element shared by the brand’s SC2 concept car.

Through these packages, we’ve combined the instant torque and dynamic capabilities of an electric sportscar, with the comforts of a luxury extended range sedan. The aesthetic enhancements of our Sports Package adds to the GT’s persona, amplifying its presence as a statement-making luxury electric vehicle,” says Joost de Vries, Vice President of Global Sales and Customer Experience, Karma Automotive.

The 2020 Karma Revero GT features dual electric motors which power the vehicle’s on-board generator and offer the best of both worlds; exceptional performance and handling, with the ability to drive up to 80 zero-emission miles on battery power alone and 360 miles overall range, powered by a 28kWh NMC (Nickel Manganese Cobalt) lithium-ion battery featuring high overall density and power output.

All Revero vehicles are assembled largely by hand at Karma’s Innovation and Customization Center (KICC), the company’s manufacturing facility in Moreno Valley, Calif. This dedication to craftsmanship furthers Karma’s philosophy that ownership should be personal and special, connecting owners to the pioneering technology and inspiration behind their vehicles.
