They also cracked down on selling Revero CIU/TPI's that were being retrofit into 2012 cars. Simply selling parts to customers would help out a lot of owners.


They want to compete with Bentley, Porsche and Maserati.. all three marques will sell these parts to customers. Karma won't

I just saw your pictures, the only person that was there pre-karma in the pics was Paul Houghton (bald guy with british accent). If that is the guy you are referring to he knows us.
well. as I talked with vice president of Karma China. they will do service and help fisker karma owner like me here with all support. and he already give me contacts of their head engineer here at Hangzhou. so hopefully they will do the same over there. because as I was told, the new assigned CEO of Karma. Mr.zhou is fully in charge of Karma Auto. as chinese way of treat old customers. there will be changes for sure.

Do you think this will increase their sales . For the first time since Karma Auto took over I saw my first Revero on the road this past Saturday. The Revero just isn't selling
well, at US is even harder for them. because the market is much mature than here. people know what they really want and know about cars. here in China, as far as they can build a nice brand imagine. there will be market for them. at least good news is this karma will not be easy to bankcrupt again. wanxiang is a very wealthy group. and just know the new owner who take over from his dad is very interested in yhis automotive business. and put billions of dollars in. so we will see in maybe 5-8 years how karma auto can turn out.

All Reveros have been recalled again and there is a stop sale, for all units on dealer lots.


https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/k...lover-sensors/


According to the recall/stop sale notice only 231 Revero's have been produced.


Looks like Kruse is over-inflating the numbers by a factor of at least 2x.

Well that sort of begs the question about our rollover sensors... We have the side curtain airbags, so I hope the associated sensors are working on our cars.

Our 2012 cars have the airbag tell tale (the new Revero cluster apparently omits this for reasons unknown) and has the appropriate IMU/Roll Over sensors that work. It is also referenced in the manual 4.15
