Are there Information about the avalability Date?
Will this normally be a SW for all areas (US and Europe) or are these separate images with different availability?

RE: 6.20 Software

During the town hall Fisker said they anticipated a June release, so 6.20 should be soon! Of course I think everyone would rather see a bug-free 6.20 release later than a buggy 6.20 release earlier.

RE: 6.20 Software

Two days ago my dealer sent me an email stating "There will be 6.20 early next month which will be very minor".

RE: 6.20 Software

I'm supposed to get the 6.15 this week and they thought the 6.20 may be available before the end of the week according to
Fisker Global affairs.

RE: 6.20 Software

Upgraded to 6.15 last week, along with getting two pieces of trim that were damaged on delivery replaced and my floor mats and the TSB for the clicking front wheels. My Karma has never been better, USB working great andthe only fault I have noticed since is a failure of the Ease of Entry/Exit to work occasionally on entering the car (FOB detection issues still?)
I can't wait for that silly analog clock to go bye-bye. My only other two issues I really want fixed are the Solar Energy screen and Remote Cabin Preconditioning.

RE: 6.20 Software

I have the same problem with easy entry/exit. Push the start button on and off twice. That solves it.

RE: 6.20 Software

I also have that clicking in my front wheels. Concierge told my it's a brake dust issue???? It sounds like rocks clicking when I turn or something is wrong with the joint boots.

I also have sqeaky brakes when it gets wet. Kind of embarrassing sometimes. I have gaps that are uneven around my trunk and hood as well. I am a perfectionist I guess... Fisker said take pictures and they would address the gaps. They are really good about customer care.

The clicking in the front wheels is easily addressed, your dealer will fix it for you if asked, or the next time you are in for a software update.

I took it in once. Told them what Nimsys said and voila, it hasn't returned. It has been at least 2 months since they fixed it and there's still no clicking when turning.

RE: 6.20 Software

6.20 mid July OR early August per Fisker - spoke with corporate- it will be ready when it is ready...not like they are hanging on to it for fun. They are working through all of the issues they want to update and I could not get a list of those

RE: Fisker Karma versus Tesla...or why EVERs will outlive EVs

There is no "memory effect" on lithium ion batteries, the main ways that lithium ion batteries degrade, are due to heat & charge cycles. Memory Effect was prevalent with Ni-Cad batteries, but not with Lithium Ion.

Once battery capacities go up and 500+ mile battery ranges are attainable I do not think a range extender would be necessary. The chances that a person would drive more than 500 miles in a day is unlikely and even then quick charge stations will be available (which will allow the recapture of 100+ miles every 30 mins). Once the infrastructure catches up, there will be no need for the complexity and weight of a generator.

I agree that a 500-mile battery should address the need of even the most ardent driver, but then the recharge time anxiety becomes more prominent because you have to draw so much power to charge a large battery like that, a home charging station would need a lot of time to charge the battery to full capacity and charging your car at a public station for 30 minutes becomes very inconvenient. I think the idea that you can fuel your car (in the broadest sense of the word) in a minute or two whenever you want has a great deal of appeal which will continue to resonate with car owners for a long time.
