Karma’s new GS-6 hybrid is a cheaper version of its luxury sports car

Electric vehicle startup Karma Automotive has fully revealed its newest hybrid car, the GS-6. While it shares the same design as the company’s ultra-luxury sedan, the Revero GT, Karma is pricing the GS-6 at nearly half the price — $83,900 — in a bid to reach a much wider set of customers.

Karma says it’s able to do that because it plans to make more cars at its California production plant, is making them more efficiently, and has streamlined its supply chain, according director of public relations Jeff Holland. “It helps that our parent company also owns our battery supplier A123 Systems, but over the past few years we have also seen a substantial reduction in the cost of lithium ion batteries and other EV-related components including other items such as motors and generators,” Holland told The Verge in an email.

If the new car is successful, Karma could

Is This Cycling Duel the Best Rivalry in Sports?

We have entered the second week of hype for Super Bowl LV, and while I’m eager for Sunday’s Chiefs-Buccaneers joust, I don’t feel the need to write, or read, another story about Tom Brady’s pregame diet, so I’m going to ask for everyone to take a quick detour with me, to the muddy, wonderful world of cyclocross racing.

Here’s the deal with cyclocross: imagine if somebody came up with a bike race, merged it “American Ninja Warrior” and set it to the tune of “Yakety Sax.” You ride a bike as fast as you can over surfaces like pavement, grass, mud, and sand, and then dismount and carry the same bike up stairs, and over barriers, and whatever other ridiculousness the promoter wants to toss out there. Riders wipe out. They get covered in muck. You are thinking: I don’t know, Jason…this

New Lotus sports car coming to replace Evora, Elise and Exige, report says

Is it time to say goodbye to the Evora?


Drew Phillips

It’s no secret Lotus has a new sports car coming, but for faithful fans of the British brand, it may mean the end of the carmaker’s three vehicles currently on sale. According to a new report from Automotive News Europe, the new sports car will arrive this summer and may serve as a replacement for the Evora, Elise and Exige.

Each car is mighty old by the industry’s lifecycle standards, and with Lotus now under management from Geely, the brand finally has the finances to make some big moves. The new sports car will be the first from Lotus as it readies the Evija electric supercar and potentially an SUV.
