The Karma Revero Is a Very Bad Car
Is it possible that everything is bad about the Karma Revero? Everything? I suspect many people would like the exterior and interior styling.
Wow, that's a pretty damning review
Five+ thousands pounds? Why, just why?
I think that's about the cruelest automotive review I've ever read. It was probably deserved, but still. What's that saying? Any publicity is good publicity. I think they would have done Karma a favor by just not publishing anything.
I thought they would do a bit of weight reduction. But it seems they added 100 lbs more weight bringing it up from 5300 lbs to 5400 lbs.
And it seems the drivetrain and poor efficiency/performance is still the same, so no improvement there either.
Seems like history might repeat itself.
Yeah, but the author missed all the BIG questions: 1) does it have cupholders? 2) heated steering wheel? 3) HUD? 4) motorized seats? 4) free paint colors? 5) 18" good-looking wheels?
As a bit of contrast, same reviewer on the Zero.
The Electric Zero DS ZF6.5 Is the Tesla Model 3 of Motorcycles
It's certainly negative, but also kinda spot on. I'm glad to read that even the Karma reps admitted it's meant to be a 3rd car for people who just wanna cruise around. There are really no practical reasons to buy a Revero. It's not quick, or spacious, or efficient, or sporty, or inexpensive, but it certainly is flashy. Hopefully they have planned their production goals in alignment with the small market it's intended to serve.
You forgot coat hangers!
... And, of course, HUD!
Don't forget key fob or lack thereof.
Seems to me the author just got a bad Karma.
Meh, the Karma is not serious competition; the M3 beats it to sixty, probably goes just as far and weighs 1600(!)lb less for 44k. But this review was a hatchet job, one can always find something to like, I for one think it looks good from behind and OK from the front.
No reason to buy a car.
Very interesting review. Love her writing style; perfect match for the car.
The weight isn't necessarily terrible. My Model X weighs 5400 lb.
But I agree with most things said in the article. In all probability, my Model X is more exciting to drive, and it can carry an extra person, and *a lot* more luggage. If you want people looking at you the falcon wing doors do a pretty god job. And it costs 30k USD less.
The only thing the Fisker Karma had going for it was looks, and it seems like nothing's changed with the Karma Revero.
