Pininfarina Designed Karma EV First Glimpse

Californian luxury EV maker Karma Automotive has released its first official image of the Pininfarina-designed hypercar concept it plans to unveil at Auto Shanghai 2019.

The concept car comes hard-on-the-heels of the Italian engineering and design house’s own luxury EV, the Pininfarina Battista, at this week’s 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Karma’s concept will be shown alongside a next-generation luxury electric Revero and an all-electric Karma Vision concept.

Karma’s Pininfarina collaboration is part of the carmaker’s ‘Value-Forward’ business plan bidding to accelerate future technology and product development through Pininfarina’s proven automotive experience. “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 CEO Dr. Lance Zhou.
