The California-based Karma Automotive revealed its new ultra-luxury vehicle lineup at the Wynn Concours in Las Vegas. The revamped portfolio from the Southern California electric vehicle and technology company is headlined by the Kaveya, a full battery electric super coupe that will be available in two versions projected to go 0-60 mph in under three seconds.
According to Karma, the Kaveya will be available in 536-hp and 1,180-hp configurations. In terms of performance, the California-based automaker aims for a sub-three second 0-60 time and a 180 MPH top speed. Both Kaveya versions will use a 120-kWh battery pack mounted behind the driver and passenger, giving the interior the physical feel and layout of a mid-engine sports car.
Karma says the battery pack is large enough for the Kaveya to deliver more than 250 miles of range. According the Karma, it can charge from 10% to 80% capacity in as quickly as 45 minutes.
Karma expects to deliver its range-topping variant in Q4 2026 and its entry-level model in Q4 2025.
“Karma has experienced its share of highs and lows during the past 10 years. I’m intent on fulfilling Karma’s true potential,” says Karma President Marques McCammon, who joined the automaker in March. “I was tasked with remaking the company, and today is only the first step toward establishing Karma as a high image marque – America’s ultra-luxury vehicle.
“We’re going to travel a path unlike other car companies. We are reintroducing the Karma brand and a vehicle lineup that is designed to age gracefully. We’re also investing in technologies that will separate our vehicles from the masses, creating new and bespoke experiences that put the driver first and the technology in its rightful place as a supporting character. Undoubtedly, our plan is aggressive. After rolling out our initial new vehicles beginning in Q3 2024, we will debut new products and concepts every six months.”
Alongside the Kaveya, Karma unveiled plans to build the Gyesera, an all-electric sedan expected to arrive in Q4 2024. However, while it’s expected to produce 590 HP and reach 60 MPH in under 4.2 seconds, the carmaker didn’t share more details about its second upcoming model. Expect to hear more in 2024.
Karma also announced plans to continue production of its Revero sedan. The updated version of the automaker’s 2016 classic rear-wheel drive includes 80-mile electric range and will be available Q3 2024. Alongside a planned refresh, the updated Revero is expected to produce 536 HP from a hybrid powertrain, allowing for an all-electric range of up to 80 miles.
The Karma design team is led by Vice President Global Design Michelle Christensen, a 20-year industry veteran who previously directed the 2017 remodel of the award-winning Acura NSX supercar.
“At Acura, the brand heritage was already established,” says Christensen. “One of the most exciting challenges at Karma has been rebranding the company and giving it new life.
