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

I've seen at least three 2018 Reveros on e-bay with "Buy it Now" prices under $90k. Seems like a huge drop off from an original MSRP of $130k. Makes me wonder.

The gen 2 revero will further depress gen 1 reveros. There are at least 30 Revero's for sale starting at less than $80k.


Most of the Revero's are leased with the 0 down 999/mo lease deal. Once all these come off lease in the next 12-18 mos the prices will tank even further.


I don't think anyone will buy the BMW powered Revero, if it was 2013 maybe it would have a chance but 2nd half of 2019 the world and technology has moved on.


A lot of Chinese cars are styled by pinanfarina (they are owned by Mahindra in India), personally I prefer the original Fisker design. The gen 2 Revero front end looks way overstyled and the elegance of the original design has been muddied. IMO

Not so keen on the Revero new front end - looks like it's saying "Meh"...

Having owned a Signature Fisker Karma and now 2 Tesla’s with a third on order my opinion is all electric is the future and the Revero as produced is doomed to fail. If they see the light and put an AWD electric drivetrain in the Revero it would sell.

For contrast. I've also owned three Tesla's (since 2013)... and recently acquired a 2012 Fisker (after selling my 3).

I just came back from a long distance road trip using the Karma. Not having to stop and supercharge saved several hours and made the journey quite pleasant.

Don't get me wrong, my MS w/AP is my daily driver and there's really no comparison; i.e. Apple vs. Lingonberry.

However on road trips... I'm VERY much in love with my new mistress... and I believe there is a niche market for the Karma/Revero.

I don't know Aaron, I think I'm with Karma31 on this one: we only have ONE tesla and one 2012, but driving up coast this past weekend in the Model 3 and stopping at a supercharger was not bad at all (amazed it can add 150 miles of range in like 20-30 minutes). I'd happily trade that inconvenience for all the complexities and maintenance of an ICE, and the noise it makes when it kicks in (which is thankfully exceedingly rare for me - I just filled the tank up this month for the first time since mid-last year, and I need to force myself to use ICE more often to move that gas through the system, but I just hate the ICE so much).

Check out the article from Top Gear - provides some interesting specifics about the new Revero (80 mile range, for example). Didn't know that the BMW engine was specifically from the i8 and apprently KA sold 500 of the old Reveros...
