The Fisker Karma returns


#1

… under a new name:


#2

Nice looking car, but only a three hundred mile total range, 50 mile electric only!


#3

It reminds me of the Cadillac ELR, a hybrid coupe that was build for three years. Except that the Revero MSRP is twice that of the ELR. I’m not enthusiastic about the Karma’s prospects.


#4

The original Karma was generally considered an expensive, good looking but crap driving, poor quality car. What’s changed on the re-born model to reverse that failure?


#5

The feature of the original Karma that I found most… puzzling… was the use of old, sunken trees reclaimed from under lakes or rivers for the interior wood trim. Yes, I know that this is ecologically-sound, but would anyone really choose a car because of that feature? Wouldn’t at least 99% of the public prefer a better-performing car with longer battery range?

And, I have never seen one of the original Fiskers on the road. My neck of the woods has a very large number of Maserati sedans, a huge number of Porsches, the occasional Ferrari, and some Bentleys. There are at least 4 Rolls-Royces being driven around town, but I have yet to see even one Fisker!
