The problems for electric vehicles don’t seem to come to an end. Instances of EV fires keep popping up raising important questions regarding the safety of electric vehicles.
A video of another electric two-wheeler catching fire came to light today. It is being claimed that the electric two-wheeler was being used by a delivery guy and it suddenly caught fire while in motion. Following which the rider had to jump out of the moving vehicle to save his life. According to the narrative the incident took place in the vicinity of Noida Sector 78/79 (we are yet to get clarity on the exact details). The video depicts an EV on fire and people standing at a distance. It is being said that the fire brigade also rushed to the spot but the EV fire had already consumed the electric two-wheeler by then.
Another instance of electric two-wheelers catching fire again raises alarming concerns regarding the safety standards of electric vehicles. Traditional internal combustion engine vehicles have evolved over a century to be more refined, safe and practical and everything that a customer needs. Traditional ICE vehicles are a product of over a century of evolution whereas the electric vehicles are a fairly new technology and have made their way into the market as there was a greater pressure for the adoption of the electric vehicles. For this we have to ask stern questions and set the strictest of safety standards for electric vehicles.
