Has anyone had to change their battery on their Fisker Karma yet? What did you end up spending?
Has the new brand said anything regarding a possible extended range battery being rolled out soon?
Karma is not developing any battery upgrade kits for the 2012 vehicle.
When Karma Automotive was founded, and we purchased many of the other company’s assets, we decided to pick up the mantle of supporting 2012 vehicle owners such as yourself through a number of different programs. One of the things we took on was the development of new vehicle software which addressed many of the 2012’s issues, and improved various aspects of the car’s dynamics and diagnostics.
We still offer that software free of charge through any Karma Authorized Service Provider. You can find your nearest one on our website here: https://www.karmaautomotive.com/locator
With regards to your battery pack, Karma Automotive (as with most vehicle manufacturers) doesn’t dictate the costs to service providers. With that said, the 2012’s battery pack is actually comprised of 15 individual battery modules. Often, a faulty module can be replaced at a lower cost than replacing the entire pack itself. Your service provider can run a diagnostic check on the pack, determine if one or more modules need to be replaced, and provide you with a quote to do so.
Please let us know if there’s anything else we can do to help.
