Southern California-based Karma Automotive is introducing the GS-6 Series. The first model to be produced in the new series is called the GS-6, and while retains the same design of the Revero GT®, but will be offered at a more attainable price point for drivers.
Available now, the GS-6 is offered in three variants: Standard, Luxury, and Sport, with the anticipated all-electric GSe-6, the brand’s first-ever pure battery electric vehicle (BEV), available later in the year starting at $79,900.
The 28 kW HV battery pack together with a 1.5-liter turbocharged powerplant provides electricity to the 400 kW 2-motor propulsion system that offers a compelling combination of drivability, performance and efficiency.
Dr. Lance Zhou, PhD, Karma’s CEO says: “Our brand promise at Karma has always been to provide high-end luxury vehicles and technologies that are driven by innovation and inspire our drivers’ ambitions with new and unique offerings. As we look to the future, we believe we will change the world of mobility by making luxury electric vehicles more accessible.”
The GS-6 family is available with convenience and safety features including an Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) which features Adaptive Cruise Control (with “Stop & Go” feature), Lane Keep Support (LKS, with hands-off detection/warning and haptic steering wheel response for unintended lane departure), Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB), Blind Spot Monitoring (BSM) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA), 360-degree Surround View Cameras System (SVCS), and Parking Distance Monitoring (PDM).
The haptic steering wheel can also control audio and phone functions, cameras, driving modes, the adaptive cruise control and the 3-mode regenerative braking system.
Headquartered in Irvine, California with an assembly plant located in Moreno Valley, Karma sells vehicles via its dealer network throughout North America, Europe, South America and the Middle East.
