Fisker has determined a faulty low temperature cooling fan was responsible for causing a Karma to burn in Woodside, California earlier this month.

The company said the component had an "internal fault that caused it to fail, overheat and start a slow burning fire."

In response to the investigation, Fisker issued a voluntarily recall for the Karma. This will enable dealers to replace the cooling fans and install a new fuse for "added protection."

According to executive chairman Henrik Fisker, "We are committed to responding swiftly and decisively to events such as this to ensure total customer satisfaction. This incident resulted from a single, faulty component, not our unique EVer powertrain or the engineering of the Karma. As this situation demonstrates, Fisker Automotive is dedicated to doing whatever is necessary to address safety and quality concerns."
