Fisker has now released a statement following its first investigation and said that “evidence revealed thus far supports the fact that the ignition source was not the Lithium-ion battery pack, new technology components or unique exhaust routing.”

Fisker said that the fire started outside the engine compartment and said there was no damage to the passenger area and that there were no injuries.

“Continued investigative efforts will be primarily focused within the specific area of origin, located forward of the driver’s side front tire,” Fisker said. Further details will be announced after a full report is completed.”
