Since the Chinese group Wanxiang acquired the design and name of the Karma from its creator Henrik Fisker in 2014, the new brand Karma Automotive has always tried to stand out from other luxury hybrid and electric cars. To help themselves more, the small Californian manufacturer joined a famous Italian design and engineering house. And on Monday, we had a first look at this collaboration. Indeed, Karma has announced a new concept car designed by Pininfarina that will officially debut at the 2019 Shanghai Auto Show (April 16-25) as part of a triple world premiere, along with a new generation Revero and a fully electric Karma Vision concept. Partnerships of this kind - and more to come - are an important part of Karma's Value-Forward business strategy. In this case, more specifically, Pininfarina's turnkey design and engineering experience will help accelerate the development of future technologies and products. "Karma is united in spirit with Pininfarina through our shared commitment to stunning design, and we are excited about the reaction we anticipate the end result of our partnership will generate," said Karma Automotive CEO Dr. Lance Zhou. The mysterious public image suggests an avant-garde reinterpretation of Karma's split grille, as well as a broad, muscular posture. We will, of course, come back to you in mid-April with the technical details and pictures of the concept when it fully unveiled.
