As Another Fisker Karma Combusts, Green Dreams Go Up In

Several months ago it seemed not a day could pass without somewhere making fun of GM’s post-bankruptcy flaming failure to the Chevy Volt (gross and net of stuffing). Of course, since it was all in the of ecological progress and carbon reduction, most media let it go as merely one of the peculiar hurdles on the way to an future in which America no longer rely on crude from evil petroleum The time has come to redirect to that other $102,00+ object of electric aspiration, and — mockery: the Fisker supercar.

To be sure, the Karma is no to spontaneous combustion, with at one model so far going up in flames in damaging its owner’s home and the company behind that sedan plenty of bad press. promptly issued a statement in it promptly denied everything as so often happens these attributed everything to a glitch. In the voice: after all why blame on a human, when blaming it on will do: Our technologies and engine have been fully and certified at the highest level.

It is irresponsible and ill-informed for technology to suggest otherwise in order to media attention for unfounded

Alas for the vendor of allegedly supercars the media attention has with a vengeance.

Fisker can’t seem to catch — because its Karma EV sedan has yet again become too hot . to an incident last spring left a model burnt to smithereens and damaged its owner’s the Karma above caught in a Woodside, CA parking lot while off. Jalopnik was to first to get of the incident, noting that the remained reserved to the front of the vehicle, near where an is located. As the story goes, the found the vehicle emitting after returning from a run, prompting a call to and then the local fire which arrived as it was already in flames.

In a statement to Wired’s Autopia . has been vehement to note the damage appears to be far from the car’s battery and sensitive components are located, and that it plugged in for a charge — it’s already had correspondence the owner and is actively investing the with plans to issue an when there are findings to

Alas, as anyone who has heard whole fool me twice Fisker’s credibility after not one but two combusting incidents may have gone up in flames. That a full scale recall of the is hardly in store: after all the movement can hardly stand the of not only the GM Volt which with packed with extras as the occasional inferno at no extra cost. Should that charge far more the Volt also be forced to then the public attention may again shift from Romney’s private equity record to Barack Obama’s equity record.

Because at the end of the day, the flaming may be none other than funded A123 which the Fisker car battery.

It remains to be whether the Karma’s battery supplied by A123 Systems the focus of previous recalls), had any in igniting the car. Thankfully were no reports of injuries the incident, but as you can tell from the the car was essentially totaled.

There is good news: throwing away millions in US funding, A123, which itself the U.S. leader in batteries, and which like is rapidly on its way to another full investment wipeout, may finally be the of Chinese funding. Or maybe As Bloomberg reports :

Fisker Karma

A123 6.4 percent yesterday in New York after announcing the financing with Xiaoshan City, Wanxiang, the nation’s largest company. The accord allows to buy an 80 percent stake in A123, calls itself the U.S. in advanced batteries.

The U.S. stock has plunged 69 percent year as the costs of replacing for Fisker prompted unprofitable to pursue additional fundraising.

A lawmaker opposed the potential of control in A123 Systems (AONE), the U.S. maker of rechargeable batteries, to a Chinese citing national security

Representative Cliff Stearns, a Republican, made the comments after A123 announced a deal — — as much as $450 million that would allow Wanxiang Group Corp. to buy of the U.S. company. A123, supplies lithium-ion batteries to plug-in vehicle maker Automotive Inc. is the recipient of a million federal grant. calls to Wanxiang’s public office were unanswered.

“It the Department of Energy and the Obama have failed to secure taxpayer funded intellectual from being transferred to a adversary, which raises national security issues,” said in an e-mailed statement.

by the results, the Chinese need to learn a thing or two about spontaneously combusting . environmentally-conscious property as well. If that no longer throwing good US money after bad, so be it. If it means that China, the US before it, will sink in good cash into that ultimately generate losses for everyone involved, more electric power to

In the meantime, enjoy this of the Fisker Karma quietly to $0.00 in the span of seconds.
