ogy resists both fade and wear, giving the driver confi- dence on the road as the vehicle recharges its high-volt- age battery. e Revero's focus on streamlined, eye-catching curva- ture gives the body design a balanced look between Gran Turismo vehicles like a Mustang and the sleek propor- tions of a Porsche 911. "e Fisker Karma is known for being one of the most beautifully designed vehicles and we wanted to keep the same beautiful aesthetics in the Karma Revero while upgrading the technology in the ve- hicle," said Taylor when discussing the Revero's seductive exterior. With colors ranging from Borrego Black, Balboa Blue (a sea teal), and Corona del Sol (classic red), the Revero appeals to both panache or restrained personality types. e leather interiors also follow suit, with stained wood paneling and tans, or crimson and midnight blacks for the sporty, cutting-edge vibe. e Revero hasn't simply copy-pasted the original Fisker model. e company has made important up- grades and changes from the 2012 version of the car, cre- ating an even more dynamic drive. Taylor outlined some of the new modernizations: "e 2018 Karma Revero offers improved quality and reliability, including a rede- signed infotainment system built with the user in mind, a new wiring harness and battery chemistry for an overall refined experience compared to the 2012 Fisker Karma." On top of this, Karma's focus on customer service, partic- ularly post-sale, makes purchasers of a Revero a perma- nent addition to the Karma family. ey have added a Vehicle Event Case System that helps remote customer service representatives diagnose potential issues with the car before anything happens on the road. "A team based in Karma's California headquarters is able to read codes on vehicles, diagnose the cause and, where needed, immediately dispatch parts or personnel from their Af- tersales and Engineering teams to resolve the issue. is early warning system also allows Karma's retailers and dedicated Customer Experience Specialists to assist with issues. In many cases, they call customers before the cus- tomers know the issue exists. Karma's system even allows them to implement updates to each vehicle's soware over-the-air, just like you get on your phone." Looking forward, Karma plans on continuing to devi- ate from the norm and push beyond traditional automo- bile expectations. "Building a car company and establish- ing a brand is a monumental task that has its challenges, but we offer an exclusive vehicle that features advanced technology, premium materials and performance that to- day's luxury buyer is looking for," stated Taylor, "We have an established network of 13 dealers that is growing and with future expansions by the end of 2019." When we asked about the plans of Karma Automotive moving forward, Taylor remained focused on elite art- istry and customer satisfaction. "While we can't disclose specific details, we have a product roadmap and consum- ers are going to be introduced to some really exciting vehicles that truly capture the soul of the Karma brand. We work daily to envision and build distinctive luxury electric vehicles that deliver a unique experience through innovative design, technology and customization. We will continue to uphold ourselves to this vision in future product roadmaps, partnerships and corporate decisions. We have proven that we can build a car, which is not a small accomplishment. To reach our full potential, every aspect of our company needs to be better tomorrow than we are today." Like any karmic cycle, reaching an enlight- ened state requires diligent, consistent work. As Karma Automotive strives to reach its full potential, we can look forward to new iterations and optimizations of its remarkable and unique vehicle. 7 3 2 - 6 9 5 - 6 6 1 1 2 7 6 A N O R W O O D AV E .
