2017 Karma Revero revealed: revived plug-in hybrid goes on sale 2017

The Karma Revero has been launched, signalling a new beginning for the plug-in hybrid once known as the Fisker Karma. Externally the Karma Revero doesn't look too different to the Fisker Karma that went out of production in 2012. There are some new badges, but that's basically it. Under the skin, the extended-range EV drivetrain remains largely unchanged. There's a set of traction motors generating a total of 301kW of power and 1330Nm of torque for the rear wheels.

VL Automotive Destino: Corvette-powered Fisker Karmas coming in 2014

Detroit motoring venture VL Automotive is moving ahead with plans to transform Fisker Karmas from using hybrid powertrains to full-strength ZR1 Corvette power. The company, which is backed by former General Motors’ vice chairman Bob Lutz and industrialist Gilbert Villarreal, has apparently purchased 25 unsold Karmas. The company also settled an ongoing dispute with an Asian investor that had hindered VL from accessing codes that operate the car’s infotainment system.
