2020 Karma Revero Gets a BMW Engine and More Power Than Ever Before


2020 Karma Revero

A Newer, Faster Revero

The Karma Revero will make its official debut at the Shanghai Auto Show in a few weeks. When it does you’ll get to see a faster and more advanced version of the car than Karma has ever produced before. The vehicle will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, and it has a top speed of 125 mph.

Pair that with its advanced hybrid system and its sleek exterior, and you have a car worth getting excited about. Oh, and BMW helped the company with an engine and onboard generator. Yep, Karma and BMW worked together on the Revero.

While the company was very tight-lipped on the specifications for the car, it did say that BMW and Karma have collaborated since 2015 on the project. The engine that powers the generator, which is what BMW worked on with Karma, works to provide juice to the battery when needed and adds additional power when needed. The engine is a TwinPower Turbo three-cylinder engine.

The previous Revero used a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder to bring the combined power output up to 403 hp and a whopping 981 lb-ft of torque. The new car should have more than that. If it’s going to get the kinds of performance gains Karma says it has, then it will have to.

The 2020 Revero should come out near the end of 2019. Karma is building the car in California. When it comes available Karma may find the hybrid car space a little crowded.
