Irvine, Calif. (April 8, 2020) – Karma Automotive, the Southern California-based high-tech incubator and creator of luxury electric vehicles, announced today its newest North American retail partner in San Jose, Calif.
Karma San Jose, operated by Karma of San Jose, Inc., is Karma’s first retailer in Silicon Valley, and fourth retailer in California. Silicon Valley is an important market for the company, who last year established a business and technology development office in San Jose to help drive innovation and build partnerships.
Karma San Jose will offer Karma’s new luxury electric Revero GT, named Green Car Journal’s 2020 Luxury Green Car of the Year™ for blending its environmental performance with high levels of luxury and an exceptional driving experience. The 2020 Revero GT offers heightened performance with an elegant interior, reimagined infotainment and technology, and enhanced electric architecture. Dual electric motors powering the vehicle’s on-board generator offer the best of both worlds; exceptional performance and handling, with the ability to drive up to 80 zero-emission miles on battery power alone and 360 miles overall range.
“Silicon Valley is an important region for Karma’s luxury electric products and our vision of a high-tech, sustainable future,” says Joost De Vries, VP of Global Sales and Customer Experience, Karma Automotive. “Karma San Jose is the right partner to support our goals of personalized customization, service, and distinct design and technology offerings.”
While the Karma San Jose showroom will remain closed in the immediate term due to COVID-19, the retailer is offering additional services to make shopping and service experiences convenient including a dedicated Karma specialist to discuss automotive needs over the phone, socially distanced or no-contact delivery and service, and the ability to purchase a vehicle remotely.
Beyond its rapidly growing global retail network, Karma’s momentum is partly driven by its position as a technology-focused brand. The company is currently building a global organization of both retailers and strategic partners exhibiting its goals of offering leading automotive design, cutting-edge technology and personalized customization resources to other OEMs, startups and like-minded partners who wish to leverage Karma’s services to develop future sustainable, high-tech mobility solutions.
Southern California-based Karma is more than just a car company. Although we are best known as a creator of soul-stirring luxury electric vehicles, Karma has emerged as a high-tech incubator offering innovators a perfect platform to prove their emerging technologies. Founded in 2014, Karma is reinventing the traditional retail-based automotive business model by opening its engineering, design, customization and manufacturing resources to other companies looking to speed product development, access new technology, or make their products more luxurious. The Revero GT, Green Car Journal’s 2020 Luxury Green Car of the Year™ is a luxury electric vehicle powered by dual electric motors that embodies Karma’s goals of offering leading automotive design, technology, customization and an outstanding customer experience. Our retail partners in North America are now delivering the Revero GT to retail customers and will begin offering a performance version, the Revero GTS, later in 2020. Every Revero is created with great individual care and world-class craftsmanship at the Karma Innovation and Customization Center in Moreno Valley, Calif.
