Karma unveils a new 1,100 horsepower EV that we all want

K​arma started out as an upstart EV company way back almost ten years ago. Henrik Fisker, an amazing Danish car designer, came out with the odd and obscure Fisker Karma EV. You might recognize this as it has solar panels on it's roof and a very large mustache.

H​owever, after the Fisker Karma had been axed, the niche EV company changed its name to what we know as today, Karma.

K​arma has been here and there over the past few years; so don't be upset if you don't know what I'm talking about here. They have produced a few saloons and sports cars, basically acting just like any other niche EV manufacturer of today.

B​ut very recently, at the L.A Auto Show in California, they unveiled a new and stunning GT car they call the SC2. Now, it is important to state that this is in fact a concept, so there is no actual evidence saying that it might be a thing. But hey, we might as well beg anyway.

A​s I stated, it is an EV and, regardless of what you think, it is a pretty exciting one. Dual electric motors power all four wheels giving it a massive 1,100 horsepower. It also (is claimed) to be a very fast and insane animal, as it is capable of reaching the 60MPH mark in less than 1.9 seconds! Whether this true or not, I will let you decide, but based on its first impression, it doesn't look like what some might call "boring."

B​ased off of what we were given, it does appear to resemble a spaceship. It has curves like the back of a 90 year-old hand and is all-in-all staggeringly beautiful. The same thing goes for the interior as well, as it is dressed with a nice tan leather many angular pieces of thing surrounding you like your typical spaceship cockpit.

S​ince it is an EV, the most worrying of all typical gremlins is range. Thankfully, however, it seems that isn't such a big issue here. Although all of these specs are based off of simulations and simple tests with the car, it has been reported that you can get as far as 350 miles on a full charge! That's more than your average Tesla!

B​asically what we have here then is another car trying to master and act upon the future. However, what makes this a diamond in the ruff is that it is indeed beautiful. Beautiful in a modern way, not in a "I'm tackeling the future with full force!" kind of way. Which is good, because every once in a while, change is good for the soul.

  • Just me getting the new Vantage vibe from that front end? Anyone?

  • "...curves like the back of a 90 year old hand..."

    Curves? What you have described are wrinkles 😜

  • If I may correct we do not all want another pretty milkfloat. 350 miles "possible" at 8mph presumably. Driven like a sports car should be & it'll run out of juice at the end of your drive.

    Range aside, half the emotion of driving an exotic is the sound. V12? Oh yes. V8? All day.

    Motor from a Moulinex Magimix? No thanks.

    When one of these can beat a train to the South of France, or May's kite from Italy to London then we'll talk.

    • As much as I would love for it to be true, these claims will most likely not follow through. There is very little info to base the car off of, so for now, bare with me here

  • Looks too much like a Vantage. Not a fan of the lack of originality
