A123 confirms Fisker Karma batteries could have cooling problem

Battery maker A123 has announced that
batteries it supplied to
Fisker Automotive for its
Karma range-extended
luxury sedan might have «misaligned» hose clamps for the cooling system, which could cause
coolant to leak. Unabated, A123 admits the leak could cause an electrical short-circuit.

According to
Bloomberg-BusinessWeek, the company has a fix for the issue, and luckily the issue was discovered when there are no more than 50
Karmas needing the
repair. A123 provides batteries to several other OEMs, but only
Fisker’s batch appears to suffer from the cooling issue.
