“There were no injuries, and none of the cars were being charged at the time,” the company said in a statement. “We have confidence in the Fisker Karma and safety is our primary concern. While we intend to find the cause as quickly as possible, storm damage has restricted access” to the Port of Newark.”

“Obviously, there was a big storm,” said Russell Datz, a Fisker spokesman. “A million things could’ve happened. You just don’t know.”
