The Fisker Karma looked like a car that had everything together, which was a facade for terrible build quality and impending bankruptcy. The company that bought Fisker Automotive vowed to keep the look of the Karma, and they did with the slightly updated Karma Revero. It’s just a lot more expensive.
Before we get to the Revero—which has a price tag of $130,000, compared to the $103,000 price of the Fisker Karma—let’s talk about Fisker Automotive and the original Karma, a plug-in hybrid that will serve as the basis for the new car. Fisker Automotive had an awful time with the Karma, including battery fires, a recall, tons of misused tax money and the bankruptcy mentioned above. It looked great, but it was an all around terrible car. Really, it was.
