ola founder and director Bhavish Aggarwal on Thursday had another chance to peek in the mainstream media after reports surfaced that a Tata Nexon EV caught fire in Mumbai.



In a tweet, Aggarwal said EV fires will continue to happen.

“EV fires will happen. Happens in all global products too. EV fires are much less common than ICE (internal combustion engine) fires,” he said in a tweet, tagging Autocar India editor Hormazd Sorabjee.

Earlier this year, Aggarwal called a senior motoring journalist “Petrol Media”, mockingly sharing photos of Burnol in response to criticism he received on Twitter.

In the meantime, Ola Electric also plans to launch its own electric car in a few years and has recently shown a prototype.

Aggarwal’s latest tweet came at a time when Ola Electric, along with several other prominent electric two-wheeler manufacturers, is facing intense scrutiny over a failed battery and poor design that has led to several EV fire incidents in the country over the past 2-3 months. .

In March, an Ola S1 Pro electric scooter caught fire on the side of a road in Pune, and a preliminary assessment found it to be an “isolated incident”.

Ola Electric later voluntarily recalled 1,441 scooters as a preventative measure to conduct a detailed health check on the affected batch.

Amid cases of electric scooters catching fire, a man in Tamil Nadu set fire to his Ola e-scooter in April after getting tired of its poor performance.

G. Prithviraj, a physiotherapist, had bought an Ola scooter in January this year, but he was fed up with the mileage and the company’s poor service.

“I had set my Ola scooter on fire because it did not deliver the mileage as promised by the manufacturer, and the poor service,” he had told IANS.

It happened after a man in Maharashtra tied his Ola electric scooter to a donkey with a rope as a form of protest.
