Karma talks about the new GS-6 sedan onlineMarch 13, 2021
The Karma Revero GT hybrid super sedan is an upgraded version of the unsuccessful Fisker Karma that the American company Karma Automotive has been producing since 2017. However, the company has already released an updated version of the model, changing its name at the same time.
The Karma Revero GT sedan has been renamed. From now on, it will be called the Karma GS-6, and the Revero name is reserved for future models – more luxurious and advanced. The car itself hasn’t changed. It continues to be equipped with a sequential hybrid, which consists of a 1.5-liter BMW turbo petrol (it operates in generator mode) and two electric motors on the rear axle (with a total output of 542 hp). The traction battery of 28 kW ∙ h provides a mileage of 129 km on pure electric traction, and taking into account recharging from an on-board gas generator, the cruising range is 579 km. The journalists of speedme.ru learned about this from the online presentation that took place the other day within the framework of Virtual Media Day.
In doing so, the model will retain the same recognizable design as the award-winning Revero GT. Karma GS-6 is offered in Standard, Luxury and Sport versions, which differ mainly in equipment and decor. The Sport modification (formerly Karma Revero GTS) also has independent electric motor control units, thanks to which the thrust vector control function is implemented. In a word, except for the new color and decor options, everything remains the same.
The GS-6 family is available with a wide arsenal of security features and options, including Advanced Driver. Assist System (ADAS) with Adaptive Cruise Control (with Stop & Go function), Lane Keeping Assist (LKS, with cut-off detection / warning and tactile steering wheel response to unintended lane changes), Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM), Surround View Camera System (SVCS) and more. The multifunction steering wheel can control sound and phone functions, cameras, driving modes, adaptive cruise control and a 3-mode regenerative braking system. The GS-6 also features a heated electric rearview mirror, eight airbags, an anti-theft alarm and software update, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto.
If Karma Revero GT still cost at least 135 thousand dollars in the USA, then for the renamed Karma GS-6 sedan they will ask for only 83 900 / Alas, the company did not explain why such a significant “discount” was obtained. And the future purely electric modification of the Karma GSe-6 (formerly known as the Revero GTE) will be even more affordable: from $ 79,900. Such a sedan will be completely unveiled a little later.
