Karma Automotive has revealed an ultra-luxury line-up of all-new battery electric vehicles at the 2023 Concours d’Elegance at Wynn Las Vegas. Presented by the OEM as a revamped vehicle portfolio, the line-up consists of two pure-electric vehicles– the all-new Kaveya and Gyesera models – and an updated version of its first vehicle, the Revero PHEV.
Spearheading Karma’s new range of vehicles, the Kaveya offers customers an all-electric super coupe that will be available in all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive versions. Together, the models share a variety of specifications – including an estimated range of more than 250 miles (402 kilometers), and butterfly doors. When the Kaveya’s 120-kWh battery has been depleted, Karma estimates that a 10% to 80% recharge will take 45 minutes.
In terms of performance, the Kaveya’s all-wheel drive version will leverage its motors to provide a combined horsepower of 1180 hp (879 kW) with a combined torque of 1270 lb-ft (1721 Nm), an estimated top speed of 180 mph (289 km/h), and the ability to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in less than three seconds. While Karma is currently looking to launch the all-wheel drive Kaveya in Q4 2026, a rear-wheel drive version will be available sooner – in Q4 2025 – offering up to 536 horsepower (394 kW) through its single-motor configuration.
The updated Revero PHEV was also a key focus for Karma at the Concours d’Elegance. Building on the automaker’s 2016 range extended hybrid electric touring sedan, the new rear-wheel drive version offers a combined range exceeding 360 miles (579 km). The new Revero’s powertrain also provides up to 65 miles (104 kilometers) of all-electric range, which itself is enabled through a 28-kWh EV battery. Together, the PHEV setup works to achieve a combined power rating of 536 hp (394 kW) with 708 lb-ft (959 Nm) of torque, and an estimated 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) time of under four seconds before it reaches an estimated top speed of around 130 mph (209 km/h). Karma’s updated Revero will be the first of the OEM’s new models to launch as it targets a Q3 2024 release date for the PHEV.
The last vehicle Karma teased during the event was the all-new Gyesera, its first all-electric touring sedan set to launch in Q4 2024. Featuring a 11.6-inch infotainment screen and rear-wheel drive, the EV offers the highest power rating of the new line-up’s single-motor models at 590 hp (433 kW), with 693 lb-ft (939 Nm) of torque. In achieving this figure, the Gyesera will accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 4.2 seconds as it reaches its estimated top speed, which Karma expects will exceed 135 mph (217 km/h). While an estimated charging time for the EV’s battery was not provided, the automaker confirmed that it will offer a maximum capacity of 120 kWh and facilitate the Gyesera’s estimated range of more than 250 miles (402 kilometers).
