Anaheim, California, USA – January 2, 2011: Fisker Automotive announced today that a majority of all customer cars and dealer-held vehicles affected by the recall involving A123-supplied battery packs have already had brand new battery packs fitted or the confirmed repair to the hose clamp assembly undertaken and are back in service – just 2 weeks after Fisker was first made aware of the issue.
The remaining customers have been contacted and appointments are being made for their replacement battery installation.
