Ford has issued a number of recalls (on the Fusion, Escape, and before that on the Expedition) for cars spontaneously catching fire. This is a problem faced by all manufacturers, so it isn't surprising it would be faced when dealing with new technology like the Volt, or Fisker Karma. It is a question of relative risk, and I don't think we have enough data (and it is likely that these technologies will improve over time).
