“Fisker Automotive can confirm that one of its Karma models was involved in a vehicle fire during a roadside incident in Woodside, California,” Fisker said in a statement. “No injuries were reported; the vehicle was parked; and the fire was extinguished safely by the emergency services. Fisker understands damage was limited to the driver’s side front corner of the car, away from the lithium ion battery and electric motors. The car was not being charged at the time.”
Fisker said that its staff has been in contact with the owner and is investigating the cause of the fire.
“We are also employing an independent fire expert to assist the investigation,” Fisker said. “A further statement will be issued once the investigation has been completed and the cause determined.”
