Jon Stewart decided to use his first show of 2014 to question the climate change deniers who climb out from under a rock every time it gets cold outside – you know, the ones that work at an entertainment station that rhymes with cocks.
This shouldn’t happen and unfortunately, it’ll probably play right into the hands of people opposed to Fisker, their Karma and all EVs. From Fisker:
“We have more than 1,000 Karmas on the road with a cumulative 2 million miles on them. There are more than 185,000 highway vehicle fires in the US every year. In an electric vehicle, immediate suspicion is focused on the battery and high voltage components. The location of the damage to the vehicle in this incident appears to rule out that suspicion. Fisker has not had any battery or high voltage fire incidents with any of its vehicles.”
This is the second Fisker Karma to catch fire and hopefully we won’t hear too many more of these stories. No person was hurt in either fire but the brand is getting fiskered and the vehicle is hearing its share of bad karma jokes (sorry!). [Wired]
