Large Electric Luxury Sedans Are Coming And The Karma Revero GTE Will Be One Of Them

The Karma Revero GTE will join the many electric vehicles to hit the road in the next 12 to 18 months.

  • A Hyper-Range version will deliver up to 400 miles of range.

  • The GTE will join the GT and GTS that are EVs with a range extender.

  • The Revero GTE is expected in spring 2021.


Both Mercedes-Benz and BMW have announced the coming of fully electric large luxury sedans in the near future. While the Benz EQE (and EQS) and electric BMW 7 Series should do well in the market, the Karma Revero has far more work cut out for it. Even so, Karma’s ready with performance, range and a new platform.

Called E-Flex, this platform will become the principal building block for future vehicles hinted by Karma, namely a pickup, an SUV and a supercar. But before getting ahead of itself, Karma will need to sell more than the 1,000 units delivered last year.

The new Revero GTE, which will arrive in a year, will be available with a 75 kWh battery good for 200 miles (325km) of range. An extended 100 kWh pack with 300 miles (485km) of range will also be offered. Later in 2021, a 400-mile (645km) range option known as hyper range will arrive. There are no other specs available at the moment however Karma says the Revero will hit 60mph in less than 3.9 seconds. And, an 80% state of charge with the 150 kW charger will take 30 minutes.

As for styling, the Karma Revero is a solid decade old however its styling is unique. As for age, the Tesla Model S is no spring chicken either but, although both EVs, we are comparing an apple to an orange – Tesla still commands an incredible lead overall others, including Mercedes-Benz and BMW.
