Karma Revero Heads to ShowroomMay 18 2017
Karma's $130,000 Revero Heads to Showroom
PUBLISHED: May 16, 2017 at 2:27 pm | UPDATED: May 16, 2017 at 6:34 pm
Irvine-based Karma Automotive’s highly anticipated electric Revero is being delivered from the group’s Moreno Valley production facility to partner showrooms across the U.S.
Ten of the $130,000 cars were loaded onto trucks Friday.
“Karma has moved from a product development company to an automotive manufacturer,” Jim Taylor, the company’s chief revenue officer, said in a statement.
Karma will sell the car at an experience center in its Irvine headquarters and through third-party dealerships in several U.S. cities. The company lists dealerships in Pasadena, Atlanta, Chicago, Fort Worth, Texas, Palm Beach, Fla., Miami, Philadelphia, Detroit, Montreal and Toronto.
Customers will need to make an appointment at Rusnak/Bentley Rolls-Royce Maserati in Pasadena, which will have one car available for test drives. The address is 285 W. Colorado Blvd. Phone: 310-721-3051.
Karma touts the Revero’s solar roof as a power source for the vehicle’s battery system. Seven hours of sunlight can supply 560 watts of power. The battery can also be charged 80 percent in 24 minutes.
A123, which provided batteries for Fisker Automotive, is the car’s battery supplier.
In April, Karma Automotive announced it had bought its leased headquarters, the former Kawasaki headquarters in Irvine, for $56.25 million from Bixby Land Co.
Karma, formerly Fisker Automotive, was bought in a bankruptcy auction in 2014 by Chinese auto parts company Wanxiang Group Corp. for roughly $150 million.
Karma Automotive, which debuted in 2015 in Costa Mesa, signed the Irvine lease in August 2016 and unveiled the Revero, its luxury electric sedan, in September.
Fisker, founded in 2007, was funded in part with $528 million in U.S. Department of Energy loans. The company was acquired by Chinese auto parts company Wanxiang Group Corp. for roughly $150 million in 2014.
