Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey hard and left a large swath of destruction in its wake. At Port Newark it flooded lots of cars parked at the bay, including 16 Fisker Karma luxury electric cars, which caught fire after being submerged by the surge.
Now, it could have been blamed entirely on the hurricane if it weren’t for the Karma’s history of catching fire for no obvious reason. This recent event is more peculiar than the previous occasions, because according to Jalopnik’s report the cars “first submerged in a storm surge and then caught fire, exploded.” They say it might have something to do with the salt in the sea water that caused Karma’s electrical systems to go all crazy and ignite.
