Artega KARO - for your daily driving pleasure!

Small Car with Great Range

Equipped with the standard Range battery, your KARO Edition travels up to 125 kilometers. Upgrade to the Range Plus battery to extend your range up to 200 kilometers and enjoy a 100% emission-free driving pleasure with a clear conscience. The KARO meets your requirements either as an ideal first or second vehicle: whether for shopping around the corner or the non-stop ride to the nearest city.  

It's the inner space that counts

Despite its small appearance, the two-seater KARO offers comfortable space for two grown-ups and their luggae: with its trunk volume of 300 liters and a maximum payload of 200 kilograms, the KARO handles (almost) every shopping trip. And if you happen to still have space left, open the soft top and let the sun ride with you! 

Conquereress of Parking Space

Problems finding a spot? That's a thing of the past. Thanks to its space-saving shape, the KARO breaks with all the inconveniences of a traditional side door: With a width of less than 1,5 meters and less than 2,5 meters in length, the KARO conquers every little parking space! The easy entry and exit through the car's front door even enables cross-parking in the direction of the sidewalk.

Tiny and Quick

The KARO accelerates to 50 km/h in about 5 seconds and thus enables agile mobility in urban as well as rural traffic. With a top speed of 90 km/h it is even faster that its historical predecessor! That's a pole position at every traffic light.With its sprinter qualities, the KARO winds quickly and nibly through every hopeless pile-up.

Will I benefit from any German environmental incentive when buying a KARO?
