The high-profile award, which was announced during the Washington Auto Show's Policy Day in Washington, D.C., recognizes environmental achievement in the automotive industry. The Revero GT was graded above other finalists competing for the 2020 Luxury Green Car of the Year including the BMW 745e, Lincoln Aviator Grand Touring, Porsche Taycan, and Range Rover Evoque.
"Karma will always be known for creating soul-stirring luxury electric vehicles that combine technology, environmental performance and world-class craftsmanship," said Karma CEO Dr. Lance Zhou. "The Karma family is grateful that Green Car Journal recognizes Karma's continued efforts to offering a luxury EV that provides the best of both worlds – extended EV capability without any range anxiety."
In bestowing the award, Green Car Journal described the 2020 Karma Revero GT as being unique among luxury models that strive to blend the best of luxury and a sporting character with the environmental benefits of an efficient electrified drivetrain.
"The Karma Revero GT epitomizes what a luxury car should be in a modern age," said Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal and GreenCarJournal.com. "The Revero GT features a compelling design with performance characteristics to match. Importantly, this extended-range electric sedan's ability to drive up to 80 zero-emission miles on battery power alone and 360 miles overall suits all driving needs."
For the past 15 years, Green Car Journal's high-profile Green Awards™ have recognized environmental accomplishment in the auto industry. Vehicles distinguished by a Green Car Award™ earn this honor for blending laudable environmental performance with other characteristics so important to new car buyers including style, value, safety, performance, and in the case of Luxury Green Car of the Year™, high levels of luxury and an exceptional driving experience.
Karma's 2020 Revero product line is offered in two variants, the Revero GT, Karma's definitive luxury electric vehicle currently available through Karma's North American retail network, and Revero GTS, a performance version beginning production in Q1 of 2020. With a base MSRP of $135,000, the Revero GT was designed and engineered from Karma's global headquarters in Irvine, Calif. All Reveros are created largely by hand using world-class craftsmanship at Karma's Innovation & Customization Center in Moreno Valley, Calif.
