Fisker to Replace 640 Battery Packs in Existing Karma Fleet
Fisker announced today that it and battery supplier A123 Systems are recalling and replacing free of charge the battery pack in all 640 Karma vehicles produced to date. The recall comes after high-profile failures, including a vehicle purchased by Consumer Reports, which failed with less than 300 miles and the clock.
Fisker maintains that only a handful of vehicles have had a battery pack failure, resulting in the car being undrivable. The cost of the recall for the battery maker will be about $55 million. Fisker says the existing battery packs will be replaced as soon as A123 can produce battery packs without the failure issue. Exactly what caused the packs to fail is unknown.
