It’s based on one of the last original Karma Reveros to roll off the production line.
We're now less than one week away until the world debut of the next-generation Karma Revero. The current model is based on the old Fisker Karma that has been on sale since 2011, so an update is long overdue. Before the new model arrives, Karma is giving the current Revero a send-off with a unique limited-edition model.
Described as a pre-sold, one-off model, the Revero Black Ocean Limited Edition is based on a 2018 Revero that was one of the last original models to roll off the production line. It has more than 80 unique features including a unique handcrafted paint finish and interior treatments that create a "very bold and head-turning statement for its owner." The limited-edition Revero is finished in matte black with yellow accents on the air intakes and front fender vents, along with yellow Brembo brake calipers.
The Revero Black Ocean Limited Edition was designed to showcase future customization options for its vehicles at Karma's Moreno Valley plant, now rebranded as the Karma Innovation and Customization Center, where the new 2020 Revero will be assembled. Karma hasn't revealed any specific details, but it sounds like future models will offer more personalization options than before.
"The facility has been renamed Karma Innovation and Customization Center to better reflect our future focus and growing a skillset centered on innovation, customization and technology integration, " said Karma CEO Dr. Lance Zhou. "KICC's skilled artisans take great pride in delivering distinctive luxury electric vehicle experiences through world-class design, technology and personalization."
Set to debut at the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show next week, the all-new Karma Revero will have an updated design and a new powertrain featuring a more powerful lithium-ion battery pack, a new twin-motor rear drive module, and a BMW-sourced TwinPower Turbo three-cylinder engine that will power an on-board electric generator.
This setup will enable the new Revero to accelerate from 0-62 mph in 4.5 seconds, which is nearly one second faster than its predecessor. In addition, Karma Automotive will also present a Pininfarina-designed concept car and the all-electric Vision concept at Auto Shanghai on April 16.
