Plus, news on the Pininfarina collaboration

It’s not often that we hear about a new vehicle from Karma Automotive, but it looks like the company has big plans for the Shanghai auto show. It will debut three products: a next-generation Revero, the first results of its partnership with Pininfarina, and an all-electric concept.

The new Karma Revero will go on sale in the second half of this year. It will be sold in the U.S., Canada, and Chile. Expect it to build off the original Revero, which was based on the ill-fated Fisker Karma plug-in.

Karma announced earlier this year that it formed a partnership with Italian design and engineering house Pininfarina. In Shanghai, we’ll see the first fruits of this collaboration, Karma promises without elaborating further.

The California-based automaker will also debut an all-electric concept called the Karma Vision. This concept is previewed by the teaser image above, and Karma says it represents the company’s long-term direction. It appears to be a low-riding vehicle, and judging from the full-width taillights, it likely takes on a design very different than what we’re used to seeing from Karma.

Karma calls the product showcase the “New Dawn.” “Our New Dawn represents Karma’s short, medium, and long-term product direction,” said Karma CEO Lance Zhou in a press release. “We have a solid product plan that spans the next decade and relationships with the right partners who are helping us accelerate technology and product development.”

The Shanghai auto show runs April 16 through April 25.
