fisker karma electric vehicle on fire

Fisker Automotive was in the news recently, thanks to Justin Bieber’s Chrome Fisker Karma being pulled over by the police. It’s not exactly good news and now we hear of a Karma hybrid EV sedan catching fire.

This isn’t the first incident of a Karma flaring up. The owner parked his car at a grocery parking lot in Woodside, CA only to find his electric vehicle on fire. He called the local fire department and Fisker to report the incident.

Real cause of the fire hasn’t been disclosed yet as investigations are still ongoing. It could be a battery issue but we have yet to hear from Fisker.
