Electric super sedans and SUVs are a dime a dozen these days, but only a handful of automakers have attempted creating an exotic EV sports car. Karma Automotive thinks there's opportunity in this uncontested space, electing to launch one of its first vehicles as a high-end coupe. Meet the 2025 Karma Kaveya, a grand tourer with scissor doors and more than 1,000 horsepower under the proverbial hood.
Let's back up a second, because it's been a minute since we touched base with Karma Automotive. To recap, Karma Automotive was formed from the ashes of Fisker Automotive — which is not to be confused with the modern Fisker Inc. (though designer Henrik Fisker founded both companies) — after various setbacks ended the automaker and its sole vehicle, the Fisker Karma plug-in hybrid. Chinese conglomerate Wanxiang Group bought Fisker's assets and created Karma Automotive to build updated versions of the Fisker Karma. These included the Karma Revero GT and Karma GS-6.
But Karma is going in a totally different direction from here on out. While the company's first fully electric car, the Gyesera, will essentially be an EV variant of the revived Revero, the Kaveya is truly new. It's stunning to look at and features innovative functional and design elements. It's also the car that Karma is using to relaunch the brand's positioning in the marketplace as it seeks to deliver what President Marques McCammon calls the "embodiment of American luxury."
