1,100 horsepower Karma SC2 concept makes bold electric performance claims
This here is the karma SC two concept which looks a lot like the karma SC one concept that debuted earlier but with a hard top but they should, their sibling, they share the same design language but aside from the Hard top, the swoopy design and those dramatic doors underneath, we're looking at a dual motor, electric hyper car.
Now Karma is tossing up some really big performance claims here.
Between the two motors, we're looking at an estimated 1100 horsepower and according to Karma, 10,500 pound feet of torque with a really big ole asterisk.
We're guessing that car was measuring that torque at the wheels which is completely different from how the entire rest of the industry measures at the engine.
At the engine we're looking at probably still wild numbers but definitely not outside of the triple digit range.
Either way you look at it, you're looking at a 0 to 60 time of under 1.1 seconds.
Now if you take it easy, that 150 kilowatt hour battery pack is going to get you around 350 miles of estimated range.
Now the performance is awesome.
The design is great, but perhaps one of the most interesting aspects of this vehicle is the drive and play system that's built in The SE2 uses a system of complex sensors and cameras to measure the road, the G forces the everything about your drive on a road or a track and later on when you're parked in your garage you can settle in behind the driver's seat and really experience that drive with all of the forces that you get there.
You can also use that technology to practice your racing line on the track before you hit the road.
Now much like that technology the rest of the SC2 is highly conceptual.
There are not concrete plans to build something like this just yet.
But Karma does have a full line of electric vehicles in the pipeline so perhaps we'll see some of those technologies there.
Now if you're into electric cars the 2018 LA Auto Show is chock full of them so be sure to check out the rest of our coverage over on the roadshow dot com for even more awesome debuts like this.
