Fisker Recalls Electric Vehicles Due To Reported Battery Defect


Fisker Automotive Inc., manufacturer of the Karma electric vehicle, is recalling 239 of its Karma units in the U.S. due to a defect that battery supplier A123 Systems Inc. announced on Dec. 23, according to a Bloomberg report.

An overview of the recall on the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's website says the problem stems from mispositioned hose clamps within the high-voltage batteries, a situation which could potentially cause coolant to leak and lead to a fire.

Fisker Automotive spokesperson Roger Ormisher told Bloomberg that the company has informed all Karma owners to date about the battery defect, adding that there have been no reported incidents.
