Revero 2020 unveil in Shanghai
Got this in my inbox today. Sounds like KA finally coming out with something new, not just a 2012 resurrection. But the big question for me is: will the new and hopefully improved 2020 battery fit the 2012? Here’s the announcement:
“Perfecting automotive art has been the hallmark of the Revero since inception. Our short history has been a testament to the power of collaboration amongst some of the most storied brands in the industry. In 2015 we announced a collaboration with BMW AG, and the fruits of that venture will soon be shown to the world.
At Auto Shanghai 2019 we will officially debut the 2020 Revero. A massive engineering departure from the car it replaces, the 2020 Revero will utilize a new turbo three-cylinder engine supplied by BMW. Their long history of advancements in automotive technology and performance made them the perfect fit for our engineering team. This new engine will provide significantly improved performance and efficiency. Power is delivered directly to the on-board generator to support the all-electric powertrain. Together with a new and more powerful high-voltage NMC lithium-ion battery pack, the 2020 Revero is capable of hitting a 0-60mph time of 4.5 seconds.
Our passions never rest. Created with a world-class electric drive system, the 2020 Revero is every bit as fast as it looks. Debuting alongside our Pininfarina-designed concept car and the all-electric Vision concept car, the future of Karma is only days away. Follow our social channels to hear more about the 2020 Revero and more exciting announcements to come.”
