As EVs caught fire, manufacturers are looking for ways to keep batteries cool


Electric vehicle (EV) makers and their battery suppliers are examining various technical solutions to avoid overheating risks amid incidents of electric two-wheelers catching fire.


On Saturday afternoon, videos of an Ola Electric S1 Pro catching fire in Pune went viral on social media. On the same day, another electric scooter caught fire in Vellore, Tamil Nadu, leading to two casualties. While Ola Electric is investigating the issue and has yet to identify the root cause, other EV companies plan to collaborate closely with component and battery manufacturers to resolve this safety issue, which could flatten the country's spiralling EV sales chart.
