Karma Automotive announced today that it welcomed its first retail partner in the Middle East, Karma Israel.
Karma Israel will sell vehicles as part of Metro Motor Ltd., which is one of the largest importers of the automotive business in Israel. Established in 1981, they have gone beyond EVs and developed vast expertise in determining new vehicle trends in the Israeli market which also includes sales of electric motorcycles, scooters, ATVs and jet skis.
“We are extremely excited to welcome Karma Israel to the Karma family as we continue growing our global retail network,” said Joost de Vries, Karma’s Vice President of Global Sales and Customer Experience. “Metro Motor gives us entry in the growing electric vehicle market in the Middle East as we ramp up sales of our GS-6 Series luxury sedan.”
In addition to Karma Israel, Karma Automotive welcomed new retailers in Nashville Tennessee and Bellevue Washington in 2021.
“It is our honor to have Metro Motor join the Karma dealership network and introduce Karma EVs to clients in this fast adapting and growing Israeli market,” said Mr. Tomer Komerov, the CEO of Metro Motor. “Israelis will no longer be able to buy new gasoline or diesel-powered vehicles after 2030. Working together with Karma, we are confident that we are providing the best-of-the-best electric vehicles that our clients desire to have.”
