Karma Automotive has announced an expansion to its Revero series with the GTE all-electric model. Visually similar to the beautiful Revero, Revero GTS and GT, the GTE will be the fourth model in the series. It features the company’s new E-Flex Platform and battery technology.

The Karma GTE is expected to have a 200-mile (322-km) or 300-mile (483-km) range per charge, depending on battery choice. Later on, Karma says, a 400-mile (644-km) option will also be available. All GTE models will be 2021 model year vehicles, with release of the car expected in spring (Northern Hemisphere) of 2021.

Karma Automotive is using the GTE to showcase the versatility of its new E-Flex Platform. Already shown in a commercial van concept, the E-Flex Platform is scalable; hence the Revero GTE. The car will also feature Karma’s New Battery Technology, utilizing a unique nickel manganese cobalt (NMC) lithium-ion battery pack ranging from 75 kWh to 100 kWh in the standard models. Battery size for the 400-mile option has not been announced, but should be in the 140 kWh area.

The Revero GTE targets a 0-60 mph (97 km/h) time of 3.9 seconds with electronic torque vectoring – no matter the battery option. Charging for the batteries can be managed through a 150-kW fast charger as well as through standard AC at 11 kW. With the former option, the GTE’s 200-mile option can recharge to 80 percent in 30 minutes, and to full overnight with the latter 11-kW option.

The Karma Revero GTE will be built alongside the other Revero models in the company's Moreno Valley, California facility. Initially launching in the US, it will become available in Europe and China by Q4 of 2021.

Hmmm, I don't trust this company, or at least not yet. They just had a sales outlet right next door to me in Newport Beach, wedged between the Ferrari dealership and the Maserati dealership, and now it's gone, replaced by Newport Exotic Car Rental (they have a Veyron as a rental car!). Maybe it's just me, but when I put that much money into a car I really really want the company to be around in 10 years. Otherwise, it DOES look amazing!

Those are amazing cars, but I don't quite trust the company will be around in 10 years or less. They just opened a dealership right next door to me in Newport Beach, and now it's an exotic rental place. If I was going to spend that much on a car, I would want to know that I could get service in a few years. But I wish them the best!

And now I just sent an email to the PR director asking if they will produce the convertible I saw at the LA Auto show years ago, and got a reply that he had resigned but they still have him listed on the website.
