Luxury electric vehicle-maker Karma Automotive announced pricing for its first all-electric car will start at $79,900, as the company prepares to take on Tesla and break out in the burgeoning upscale electric vehicle market.
The car can be reserved for a fully-refundable $100 deposit on their website. The design for the Karma GSe Series sedan has yet to be released but the company said it would retain the low-slung sporty profile of the company's signature car, the Revero GT, with a powertrain configuration, 21-inch wheels and vegan leather interior standard. Karma said its range will be "north of 300 miles."
