Obama’s Karma is bad… Plug-In Hybrids a Fire Hazard

Fisker Automotive is recalling all 239 of its 2012 Karma luxury plug-in hybrid cars because of a fire hazard, according to a report filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Prices on the 2012 model start at $103,000, including the destination charge.

In a report filed recently on the agency’s Web site, Fisker said some hose clamps were not properly positioned, which could allow a coolant leak. “If coolant enters the battery compartment an electrical short could possibly occur, causing a thermal event within the battery, including a possible fire in the worse case,” the company told the safety agency.

The paradox? A Utopian model demands a small group of elite, that consider themselves superior to the proletariat, deserves the penthouse apartment overlooking the kingdom.
