It May Look Similar, Yet, Karma Revero Separates From Karma Fisker At Some Points
Hi there, today I’d like to talk about that there are some basic points that you might need to know about Luxury Plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) Karma Revero.
It’s Not A Fisker Anymore
As you may remember Fisker Automotive was sold to a Chinese company Auto-parts supplier company for $149M and then the company was renamed as Karma Automotive. So we should be deliberatively calling this as a Karma Revero as it got a $1B investment for development.
After Chinese bought all assets of Fisker, almost hundred Fisker Karmas were found in assembly stage in company’s storage locations of Finland and Belgium were scrapped.
Customers As A Family
Former Karma produced 2.349 vehicles in 2012 and never lost contact with owners of the cars which are still on service. It supplied necessary service as well as software upgrades.
The new company started its production life with 20 employees initially in Moreno Valley California in March, producing a single unit per day, yet, aiming to reach to 1000 employees and produce 10 cars per day as its goal.
11 Retail Stores As A Beginning
As a fire up, the company is planning to open eleven retail stores in the beginning in California and as a factory store In Irvine, then spreading to other like Pasadena, California; Detroit, Michigan; Chicago, Illinois; Fort Worth, Texas; Atlanta, Georgia; West Palm Beach, and Miami, Florida; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and Montreal, and Toronto, Canada.
No call centers or “hand-offs”
Each customer will have an individual customer service throughout their ownership life, from the purchase day to the last day, including delivery, service, road assistance, upgrades, and others.
California Delivery Program
Karma will schedule a delivery program exclusive to California sales, including but not limited to, city tour, accommodation in a luxury hotel, concert invitations etc..
Improved Solar Panels
Unlike the former Karma model, new Karma’s roof solar panel will be directly connected to the battery for an extra 3 miles on a sunny day, which produces 200W of electricity.
Leather and Wood
The new Karma will be upholstered with Weir leather and designed optionally wood interior.
Like a Snowflake
Each Karma Badge is painted individually by an artist, which makes it unique for every single unit.
The new Karma is one of the 3 cars in the world which uses real encryption which uses Certicom cryptography as addition to QNX secured two-way data transmission.
Tactful Customer Care
Although the company has no legal obligation to do so, In 2012, when NHTSA issues another manufacturer for an airbag recall, Karma voluntarily covered all the losses and expenses related to airbag replacement.
