Chances are you’ve never heard of Karma, or its plug-in hybrid sedan, the Revero. That’s OK. Most hybrid shoppers haven’t. Even most Tesladytes are in the dark when it comes to this sexy American-made sedan. But the 2020 Karma Revero GT is worth learning about.
Originally conceived by noted automotive designer Henrik Fisker as the Fisker Karma, the car made headlines when its sleek shape grabbed the attention of Hollywood A-list owners like Leonardo DeCaprio and Justin Beiber. When the company fell on hard times, it was purchased by one of China’s largest auto suppliers in 2014. It renamed the company Karma Automotive and its radically styled plug-in hybrid sedan — which it has been improving ever since — the Revero. The 2020 Karma Revero GT is the result. Although it’s based on Fisker’s original design, most of the Revero GT is new. It's not only better-looking than before, but it’s also significantly more powerful, more efficient, and more refined. Its competitors include the Tesla Model S, Porsche Panamera Hybrid, Aston Martin Rapide E, and hybrid sports cars like the BMW i8.
