USA: Fisker claims to be near completion of Karma battery recall

A123, the company that supplies the battery packs for the gorgeous new Fisker Karma recently discovered a possible coolant leak that could lead to electrical fires in the high tech sedan and today, Fisker issued a statement claiming that the majority of Karma electric sedans built thus far have had new battery packs installed through the new recall – just two weeks after the automaker was made aware of the problem.

Fisker and A123 believe that just 50 examples of the Karma electric sedan are equipped with the faulty batteries but just 10 days after A123 made their official announcement that lead to the recall of the Karma, Fisker is reporting that the majority of Karma sedans already produced have had new, coolant leak free batteries installed. Fisker states that the Karma sedans equipped with the questionable batteries from A123, both those in the hands of customers and the ones at dealerships around the world, have either been repaired/returned or an appointment to fix the car has been made.

“We will always react quickly to ensure the safety and quality of our cars. We decided that the immediate replacement of the battery pack in every vehicle was the right approach for all our customers,” said Fisker CEO Henrik Fisker. “We identified the appropriate fix, made our retailers aware of the situation and began contacting all our customers within 48 hours and were well advanced with the recall ourselves before the official posting on the NHSTA website.”
