The Karma Revero is gor­geous, fun to drive—and in pro­duc­tion. Karma Au­to­mo­tive is the suc­ces­sor to Fisker Au­to­mo­tive, maker of the Fin­nish-de­signed Fisker Karma hy­brid, which de­buted in 2012 and sold fewer than 2,500 cars be­fore pro­duc­tion halted. Founder Hen­rik Fisker left the com­pany in 2013. Re­or­ga­nized in 2014 and restaffed, Karma is run by en­tre­pre­neur Tom Corcoran and for­mer GM exec Jim Tay­lor with fund­ing by Chi­nese auto parts giant Wanx­i­ang Group. “It’s es­sen­tially a startup,” says Tay­lor. The so­lar-roofed, $130,000 Revero is be­ing built in Moreno Val­ley, Cal­i­for­nia.
