Karma Automotive Hints At Electric Pickup Truck And SUV

•, By: Mark Kane

In the near future, Karma might expand from sports and luxury plug-in cars (the company currently offers only Revero GT/GTS) to electric pickup trucks and SUVs.

According to Bloomberg's article, the concept version of a pickup is expected by the end of this year. A few months ago, Karma hinted at the possibility of using its powertrains in larger vehicle platforms - like pickup trucks, so it seems that the topic is further explored.

Karma's approach is to use a new all-wheel-drive platform (all-electric we believe), but there are no details.

Kevin Pavlov, the new COO of Karma (formerly at Ford and Magna) said:

"We can bring a utility vehicle into the market and be differentiated,"

The other area of expansion is all-electric cars, heralded by the Karma SC2 Concept at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
