USA: Fisker recalls electric cars again, due to software glitch

Updated. Uh-oh. Electric car maker Fisker Automotive has issued its second recall of its inaugural car the Karma, this time due to a software malfunction that affected its entertainment and navigation systems, reports Hybridcars (hat tip Autoblog Green). Fisker will reportedly also temporarily halt sales of the Karma until the problem is fixed.

Update: Fisker Senior Director, Global Corporate Communications, Roger Ormisher tells me the car sales were halted due to the software glitch for about four days, but they are now selling the cars again. He also called the events a software upgrade, not a recall.

Last month, Fisker also recalled 239 Karmas, and that was due to faulty batteries made by A123 Systems. Fisker quickly fixed those cars by the first week of the year. Fisker also delayed the launch of the Karma several times over the past several years.
