    Gets new logo too.

    As for the company's new logo, there's a hidden message. The new emblem has, "An imperfect ring, representing constant effort towards unattainable perfection, encircling the earth. With a spark of sun, the eternal symbol of endlessly renewable energy. Inner cut lines represent our three brand priorities." Those priorities are to be beautiful, clean, and memorable. Of course.

    Cool!

    I like the Karma. Hope that they will improve it.

    Maybe they'll have better Karma now that they've gotten rid of Fisker...

    I was just thinking about them this morning. I like the name and logo, but will it be the Karma Karma and Karma Atlantic? Wishing them the best.

    Are they at least going to build a full electric car this time or are they going to stick a gasoline engine in there just for some bad karma?

    Not unheard of, it's just like the Land Rover Land Rover. Either way, a much better brand name than Elux.

    I drove a Cheverolet Chevy in Mexico a couple of years ago. So, yeah, not unheard of.

    Are you sure? The normal production Karma can't charge at a Supercharger - the connectors are different, it doesn't know the protocols - AFAIK they don't even have the direct connections to the battery to make DCFC possible - and the ~20 kWh battery pack couldn't take 90 kW of charging power anyway.

    The Fisker i saw had red manufacturer plates. I am thinking it wasn't the old car but some variant of the new vehicle.
