Karma Automotive has revealed a sports car which came with terrific-looking doors. The car happens to be the company's first all-electric variant and it's being described as a "statement about the direction of Karma's future product offerings in both technology and design."
Formerly known as Fisker Automotive, the Southern California-based car manufacturer has experienced gloomy times as a result of bankruptcy back in 2013. During those years, a Chinese car parts corporation named Wanxiang Group purchased their assets and that of the automaker's battery supplier A123.
Since then, the company has been involved in some investment deals to relaunch its first vehicle called Karma.
