US Taxpayer-Subsidized Finnish Moonbatmobiles Burst Into Flames

While flinging our money to the four winds, Obama devoted $529 million to building moonbatty electric cars in Finland. If you are one of the very few people rich enough to buy a Fisker Karma, yet dumb enough to actually do it, make sure you don’t let your outlandishly expensive environmentally correct toy get wet:

Approximately 16 of the $100,000+ Fisker Karma extended-range luxury hybrids were parked in Port Newark, New Jersey last night when water from Hurricane Sandy’s storm surge apparently breached the port and submerged the vehicles. As Jalopnik has exclusively learned, the cars then caught fire and burned to the ground.

Our source tells us they were “first submerged in a storm surge and then caught fire, exploded.” This wouldn’t be the first time the vehicles, which use a small gasoline engine to charge batteries that provide energy to two electric motors, had an issue with sudden combustion.

The vehicle, despite only being in limited production, has already experienced numerous fires due to equipment failures and electrical shorts. How, exactly, they caught fire after being submerged in sea water is unclear. It’s possible the salt water caused a short that led to a fire.

Fisker shrugs that there were no injuries involved. If Finns paid taxes in this country, they might feel differently.

    Why not call it a MOONBIOT<?

    Smug, self righteous, pompous, arrogant, elitist and best of all, totally useless. Fits the bill perfectly.

    Don’t blame the crafty Finns. They’re just filling a market niche caused by American Moonbat LIEberalism.
