Meet the SC1 Vision – Karma Automotive Strikes back
Karma Automotive, a California-based EV manufacturer, was founded in 2015 from the ashes of now defunct Fisker Automotive. It is owned by Wanxiang Group – a Chinese corporation – and this is their all-electric, technological masterpiece. It's called the SC1 Vision.
The SC1 Vision was first introduced at the Shanghai Motor Show and Karma is going to showcase it again at this year's Pebble Beach.
They've called it 'the Vision', because it envisions and anticipates the design language of Karma's upcoming vehicles, which is interesting, because it is a roofless convertible with no windshield, scissor doors and big wheels.
It comes with large dollops of technology. The interior features state-of-the-art technology with 5G connectivity and a "humanized" communication system with touch, voice, eye and graphical interfaces. In plain English, this means the Karma Vision has an AI, and a pretty clever one at that, capable of monitoring the driver’s irises, eyelids and gaze to assess and evaluate the driver's condition, meaning it can basically tell you whether you're tired or not. And it also has eight radars and six external cameras.
Interestingly, Karma hasn't disclosed any information about its powertrain, the only thing they said is that it is an all-electric vehicle. I guess we're probably going to learn more in the near future. The Californian manufacturer has also recently unveiled the Revero GT, a 535-hp hybrid supercar.
