New to the Canadian market is the 2017 Karma Revero, a sporty plug-in hybrid destined for the luxury performance buyer. A pair of electric motors deliver 403 horsepower to its rear wheels, with an all-electric range of 80 kilometres and 480 kilometres with gas-powered support.
The 1,500-horsepower Bugatti Chiron is powered by an eight-litre W16 engine boosted by four turbochargers and is capable of accelerating faster than 400 km/h. Bugatti calls it the "quintessential ultimate super sports car."
