2018 Karma Revero vs 2018 Toyota Prius Prime

2018 Karma Revero Exterior Driver Side Front Angle vs 2018 Toyota Prius Prime Exterior Passenger Side Front Profile

The Karma Revero is a vehicle unlike many others on the market. Picking up where its predecessor, the Fisker Karma, left off, the Revero is an absolutely incredible plug-in hybrid vehicle. As an exotic model, it doesn’t have very many competitors as of yet, though we expect that to ramp up in the years to come. Until that time, though, we wanted to at least see how the Revero measures up to other plug-in hybrids available on the market, exotic or not, so we’ve decided to pit the 2018 Karma Revero vs 2018 Toyota Prius Prime.

The Prius Prime is the newest version of the Prius family’s plug-in entry. As the Prius was the first mass-produced hybrid vehicle to ever hit the market, it has a long legacy to uphold. But it’s no exotic sedan, and so will have difficulty matching the Revero we think.

Advantages of the 2018 Revero

As you can see from one glance at the table above, we were certainly right. While the Prius Prime might have a long and storied legacy, it cannot quite keep up with the Karma Revero in many fronts. Let’s tackle what the table says row by row.

First and foremost, the Prius Prime is severely underpowered. Offering just 121 horsepower, it’s outmatched by more than double – 282 horsepower to be exact. Furthermore, as the second row shows, its all-electric range is doubled as well. The Prius Prime’s only reprieve comes in the form of total range, as it more than doubles the Revero’s 300 mile range.

However, the Prius Prime’s final blunder is in terms of acceleration, as it takes a full 4.8 seconds longer to hit 60 miles per hour than it does the Revero. If you’re interested in one of these incredible plug-in hybrid Karma vehicles, be sure to get in touch with us right here at Prestige Imports.
