Tata Nexon EV on FIRE – Whom to Blame?

A car on fire is in itself a statement, but a car actually catching fire is something that no one would actually want. This series caught the media’s attention in mid-2022 when several electric vehicles caught fire. Some called it a PR stunt, some deemed it as a move out of jealousy due to the increasing popularity of electric vehicles by ICE manufacturers, while some blamed it on technical malfunctions. Over 5 incidents of electric vehicles catching fire were reported last year. Now, this year’s first electric vehicle fire has been reported as a Tata Neoxn EV caught on fire in Pune, Maharashtra.
