Just a few years ago, Fisker was one of the darlings of the plug-in vehicle era until it filed for Chapter 11 protection. China-based Wanxiang bought the rights to Fisker’s assets in February of 2014 for $149.2 million. In the last two years Fisker has gone from 22 employees to almost 700 last month. This is a sign of the intentional growth Fisker is putting into bringing the Revero to market.
The Revero will carry a price tag of $130,000 USD, about $30,000 more than the Karma. Like the Karma, the Revero will feature a 260-horsepower, turbocharged four-cylinder engine from GM. Rounding out the features are a battery that boasts increased capacity from 20.4 kWh to 21.4 kWh, which will be good for 50 miles or range. The 0-60 time has been dropped by a second to 5.4 seconds in Sport mode.
On the inside, the Revero will have Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto at a later date. The car will have a dedicated 4G connection and a nav system that uses hybrid maps with off-board capability and live traffic.
The 2017 Karma Revero is currently available via select Karma dealers in North America and will be available to order online at the end of this month.
