    Ok, so Fisker has these cars in NJ and they get wet, well flooded, and catch on fire and explode.

    http://www.foxnews.com/leisure/2012...ter-being-submerged-by-hurricane-sandy-flood/

    And while I never expect to be in my car in a flood, I sure as H3!! don't want it to be in it and the car to get so pissed off it burns me up and then blows me to bits over a little water and salt.

    Holy crap, did they make this thing from the wicked witch of the west?

    Hmmm... lets see. High amp discharge rate lithium battery pack and electrically conductive salt water covering ALL positive/negative poles simultaneously. What could possibly go wrong.:rolleyes:

    yikes. guess the engineers will point their collective fingers at the accountants, while they scream behind their calculators and point at the designers, who then after waking up from their heat induced faint, point at the engineers. To bad Karma Doesn't rotate.

    I can think of several times we were in a near flood state in our car. I can't imagine the thing blowing up on me. I will pass on this one.

    It looks like if you are inside when it goes off you might not be able to get out with all the airbags holding you down but at least you'll see it coming as the interior light will turn on:


    The Karma's cabin comes standard with 8 airbags: a front dual advanced restraint system with knee, full-length side curtain and seat side airbags. In the event of an impact, the Karma's onboard systems trigger several safety response actions, such as shutting down the high voltage battery and fuel pump systems, automatically unlocking the doors, and turning on the interior and hazard lights.

    Yes. Just a few hundred million I think. The Karma is built in Europe. Fisker was supposed to build a family car at an old gm plant in Pennsylvania but I think deal has fallen apart.
