The ADI Permanent Design Observatory has selected the Karma GT designed by
Pininfarina for publication in the ADI Design Index 2020, which allows the
concept car to enter the competition for the prestigious Compasso d’Oro
Award in the Design for Mobility category.
The Karma GT designed by Pininfarina was first unveiled at the Shanghai
Motor Show 2019 by the California-based luxury electric vehicle
The Karma GT is a true two-door electric “Gran Turismo” defined by the
proportions of the Revero GT 2020 on whose platform it is based. Featuring a
recognizable interior with a reinvented exterior that fully respects the
identity of the Karma brand. The design philosophy emerges from the
seductive lines of the vehicle, the completely redesigned sides, aggressive
nose, and contrasting black roof. These design elements together transform
the character of the Revero GT into an exclusive vehicle that blends
Californian innovation with the unique style of Italian sports cars.
“We are proud that the project born from our creativity and the
collaboration with Karma Automotive has received prestigious global
recognition – affirms Paolo Pininfarina, Chairman of the Group. – The
electric GT best interprets the spirit of the ADI Design Index and perfectly
expresses our expertise in the design and creation of customized luxury
vehicles, always in the name of environmental sustainability “.
Each year the ADI Association for Industrial Design identifies the best
