The Karma Automotive Gyesera (10:00 a.m.ET)

The Karma Gyesera, the first American-built, ultra-luxury fully electric sedan, will make its world debut at The Amelia.  Karma, based in Irvine, Calif., with a dealer network that includes North America, Europe, South Africa and the Middle East, selected The Amelia to introduce the company’s first all-electric vehicle to an East Coast audience.

The Gyesera has a 250-mile range, goes 0-60 in under four seconds and the interior features an 11.6 center console infotainment screen. The Gyesera debut follows the November 2023 introduction of the Karma Kaveya, a super coupe GT with an all-wheel drive version that tops 180 mph.
