Fisker Karma battery problems fixed
Fisker Automotive has provided substitute battery pack to nearly all customers and dealers impacted by the current recall of Fisker Karma models as a result of possible battery problems.
A week ago Autocar reported the Californian vehicle company was recalling every Fisker Karma as a result of fault using the car’s battery connection.
The Karma, which continued purchase at the end of 2011, is operated by twin 201bhp electric motors along with a 260bhp gas engine/generator. The issue is from the fitting from the hose clamps towards the 20kWh lithium ion battery power, that is provided with a company known as A123 Systems.
Today Fisker confirmed it has either fitted completely new battery pack or transported out repairs towards the hose clamp set up to the majority of the 239 Fisker Karmas, and it has contacted the rest of the people to schedule its substitute battery installation.
Henrik Fisker, Chief executive officer of Fisker Automotive stated: “We made the decision the immediate substitute from the battery power in each and every vehicle was the best method for all of our customers.”
