Karma’s new GS-6 hybrid is a cheaper version of its luxury sports car
Electric vehicle startup Karma Automotive has fully revealed its newest hybrid car, the GS-6. The startup was born in 2014 when Chinese automotive conglomerate Wanxiang Group bought a bulk of the assets of Fisker Automotive following that company’s bankruptcy. Wanxiang named the new startup after the Fisker Karma, the defunct company’s failed hybrid sports car, and ultimately revived that vehicle as the Revero. (Henrik Fisker, who founded Fisker Automotive, now has a new company called Fisker Inc. that is also working on electric vehicles.) That announcement came at the beginning of a wave of electric vehicle companies going public by merging with special purpose acquisition companies (including Fisker Inc.).
