It's not the batteries shouts Fisker

Extended range electric vehicle maker Fisker is having to do a bit of damage control this week after the floods that hit the New York area. Several Karma automobiles were caught outdoors and flooded during the hurricane. Apparently one Karma caught fire and the fire spread to other nearby Karmas.

Fisker is now stating that residual salt damage from the flooding caused a short-circuit leading to the fire. The carmaker insists that there is no problem with the vehicle's battery packs.
