USA: Fisker Automotive EV Batteries Experience Safety Issue

EV battery maker A123 Systems Inc. has already developed a solution for the problem

An electric vehicle (EV) battery maker has found a possible safety issue in the batteries it makes for Fisker Automotive EVs, but says it has already found a solution to the problem.

A123 Systems Inc., developer and manufacturer of advanced lithium-ion batteries for automakers such as Fisker Automotive and General Motors Co., has pointed out a safety flaw that specifically affects the batteries it supplies to Fisker Automotive.

According to A123 Systems, hose clamps in the internal cooling system of its batteries made for Fisker Automotive were “misaligned.” This misalignment could potentially cause coolant to leak, and this leak could lead to an electrical short circuit.

A123 Systems has already found a way to fix the problem, and said less than 50 vehicles were affected. It added that it continues to have a strong business relationship with Fisker.
