Karma Automotive revealed in a press release today that the Revero EV will become the company’s flagship model. The decision comes so the company can make room in its line up for the new GS-6 and GSe-6.
The GS-6 will apparently not be fully electric and we have yet to see an image of it. However, it is slated to begin customer deliveries as early as 2021. If you are looking for a fully electric vehicle, Karma will also offer an all-electric version, the GSe-6. Of course the all-electric version will be more costly than the PHEV.
Karma’s Vice President of global sales and customer experience, Joost de Vries commented on the announcement saying: “Today’s announcement positions us well for the future as we continue to evolve and refine our automotive offerings to meet the specific needs and wants our customers have come to expect. Thanks to our U.S. manufacturing capabilities at our 550,000 sq. ft Karma Innovation and Customization Center in Moreno Valley, California, we have the ability to be nimble and more cost efficient while still providing world-class luxury vehicles, services and customization options.”
To date, there is very little information regarding the GS-6 and the GSe-6. We do know it will retain the design of the plug-in hybrid Revero GT, but will be powered solely by a lithium-ion battery pack ranging up to 110 kilowatt-hours, with a range up to 300 miles. The company’s website also mentions aluminum construction and blended three-mode regenerative braking, other than that, feature details are otherwise sparse.
The GSe-6 has a starting price of $79,900 with pre-orders already being accepted at a $100 fully refundable fee.
