- It’s okay if you’re a bit confused about where the Revero fits into the ongoing drama that started with Fisker Automotive and now includes models like the all-electric Revero GSe-6.
- We’ve found a good-looking example in Balboa Blue with a leather interior and less than 5000 miles on the odometer.
- Whatever the backstory, a deal’s a (potential) deal, and this one’s available now as our Bring a Trailer auction pick of the day. Bidding is currently at $41,000. But the auction goes until December 26, and there’s also an unspecified lien on the car.
There aren’t that many Karma Reveros in the world, and if you were to purchase today’s Bring a Trailer highlight, consider it likely that people will confuse it with the much older Fisker Karma. But, hey, if clearing that up is a conversation you’d enjoy repeatedly having, read on. The backstory would be needed for conversations with strangers if you were to become the owner of this used 2019 Revero. It’s currently available, with the highest bid at $41,000 with a week to go until the auction ends on December 26 on Bring a Trailer—which, like Car and Driver, is part of Hearst Autos.
Karma Automotive was created out of the bankrupt Fisker Automotive, which first designed a plug-in-hybrid vehicle called the Karma over a decade ago. Chinese auto-parts maker Wanxiang bought the troubled remnants in 2014 and then created Karma Automotive to take advantage of the look and engineering IP. The automaker has since been tweaking the design and powertrain to create its current lineup, which no longer includes the vanilla Revero. The current lineup includes the Revero GS-6, which uses a plug-in-hybrid powertrain as it did in 2019, and the upcoming all-electric Revero GSe-6.

Painted in spectacular Balboa Blue with Palisades black leather interior, this Revero has 4,800 miles on the odometer and appears to be in good shape. Features include a solar roof panel, 22″ Spur wheels, heated seats throughout the cabin, dual-zone automatic climate control and an eight-speaker sound system. There’s also a 10.2-inch touchscreen with navigation.

The Revero’s powertrain uses a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and two rear-mounted electric motors powered by a 20.8-kWh lithium-ion battery. The total output for the system is rated at 403 horsepower and 981 pound-feet of torque. The 2019 Revero has an all-electric EPA range of 37 miles and a total range of 240 miles with a full tank of gasoline. Its original sticker price was $135,600.

We expect the auction price to jump quite a bit before the auction ends in six days. There’s a used 2018 Revero being offered by a New Jersey Karma dealer for just under $60,000 and a 2019 model at Karma of Newport Beach in California (which originally sold the specific unit now available on BaT) with a $70,000 price tag. Of course, the vehicle available on Bring a Trailer does have a lien attached, which will need to be paid before you can take the title. At least the Carfax is reportedly clean, with no accidents or other damage. The car has been registered in California its entire life.
