The NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigation received four complaints "alleging unintended vehicle movement" related to the 2023 Ocean model.

The complaints alleged an inability to shift into the park mode or into the intended gear, which could result in an unintended vehicle movement, the US auto safety agency added.

One of the complaints alleged an injury, the NHTSA said.

Last year, the US-based EV maker Fisker registered itself in India in April last year with its headquarters in Hyderabad, Telangana.
