Cars – Karma Automotive launched its new car, Kaveya. This car is an electric model that represents the beginning of the automaker’s entry into the growing market for luxury electric cars.
The Cavia was unveiled at the Wynn Concours in Las Vegas, and it is a fully electric super coupe GT car. It was developed to highlight the capabilities of the decade-old startup. The campaign is being led by Karma President Marquis McCammon, who joined the company in March. Meanwhile, the design team is led by Vice President Michel Christensen, best known for working on the redesign of the 2017 Acura NSX.
“Karma has seen its share of growth and decline over the past 10 years,” McCammon said. I am determined to realize Karma’s true potential.” “I have been tasked with reshaping the company, and today is just the first step toward establishing Karma as a high-profile brand among the American ultra-luxury car brand.
The Karma Cavia will be offered in two variants: a rear-wheel drive model with 536 hp and an all-wheel drive model with more than 1,000 hp. The car is expected to complete the acceleration from zero to 100 km/h in less than three seconds. This will help it enter the list of the fastest electric cars. As for top speed, the Chinese-owned American brand is targeting more than 290 km per hour.
The Cavia also comes with a 120 kWh battery that provides an estimated range of 402 km. Meanwhile, charging time from 10-80% will take about 45 minutes. Limited numbers of Karma Cavia will be manufactured, and so far only 372 units remain for reservation.
During the launch event, Karma also announced other models in the new lineup, including the Jesera and Revero. The first will be launched in the fourth quarter of 2024, and it is a sedan with a power of 590 horsepower and a range of up to 402 km. Meanwhile, the updated Revero plug-in hybrid electric sedan will be available with an electric range of 105 km. It will be introduced in the third quarter of 2024.
