It amazes me how little I'm hearing about Karma, is it because Karma does so little marketing, or is it because people just forgot they even existed? I sure as hell haven't and I'm super excited for the 2020 Revero GT.
To me, the Fisker Karma was love at first sight. I love the sleek design, and the very special interior. I loved everything about the car, however the car itself was, well, less than great to put it softly. I had never driven one, and haven't to this day (sadly), but owner's reviews showed that the car really was a great idea executed terribly.
To people who aren't familiar with how the Karma works; the car itself is powered only by the battery. So you get the instant torque, quick acceleration and great fuel economy that comes with an EV, but with the Karma Revero GT you get the best of both worlds. The downsides of driving an EV of course are the range, the time it takes to charge the thing, and the lack of emotions when driving. The Karma resolves these issues as well, because there is a 3 cylinder engine in the front, which acts as a power generator. This means that you can, if you want, just fill it up with gasoline and not have to worry about driving range. The exact fuel consumption numbers haven't been revealed yet, but I expect it to consume around 2.5L/100km. Karma borrowed the engine from the BMW I8, which uses around 2.1L/100km.
The Revero GT will have around 535 HP and 510 torques, and it'll even have launch control! Combine that with the acceleration of an EV, and you've got a car that can shoot the panties off of any girl that steps inside.
The Fisker Karma, and Karma Revero had a few issues, a big one being the generator which would all of a sudden start revving, kind of like my Audi 80 did, only with the Revero this wasn't because a sensor was broken, it's just what it would do. It seems like they've now changed this. If you hit full throttle in sports mode now, it sounds like a normal fuel powered car! Like I said, this car has the acceleration of an ev, yet can deliver the emotions of a good old fashioned gas powered car. More than that, the GT looks sexier than Jessica Alba in a bikini, and would be stylish enough to drive James Bond around. Not a coincidence actually, because the Fisker Karma was designed by the same person that designed the Aston Martin DB9, a car that was so perfect, that it's design language trickled down to every Aston Martin of the aera. Even though the variants and later models were designed by Marek Reichman, everything can be traced back to Henrik Fisker's original DB9.

When you take a look at the interior, it seems like very little has changed, but based on reviews from others who have actually driven the car, the touchscreen is as fast to respond as your Iphone, and the interface is decent, no matter what, just look at it and you'll fall in love.
This Karma Revero GT might not be your taste, and I can agree that it could have done without the black piece of plastic on the front, but in my opinion it's the perfect car. I can't wait to drive one myself, and if Karma would ever look for someone to review their car in the Netherlands, I sure hope they think of me.
