AutoBeta(AutoBeta.net)04/12 Report--

On April 11, some netizens released a video of a new energy car catching fire on the Internet, which attracted a lot of attention.

It is understood that the vehicle fire occurred at the roadside location of Tanggang, Duanzhou, Zhaoqing, Guangdong Province, and the vehicle was parked at rest by the roadside. From the video, we can see that there is a lot of smoke coming out of the bottom of the vehicle, during which it seems to be accompanied by the sound of an explosion, and a large number of open fires suddenly burst out from the bottom.

In response to the fire, the fire and rescue brigade of Duanzhou District of Zhaoqing City revealed to the media: the accident caused no casualties, and the cause of the fire is still under investigation. Zero running car customer service staff also responded to the fire: batteries are guaranteed when they leave the factory. If the fire is caused by chassis bumps and other reasons, it is recommended to ensure personal safety first, and then contact the service center staff to further confirm the accident. At the same time, it is also pointed out that officials attach great importance to the fire of the battery pack. If it really happens, there will be relevant staff to follow up to deal with this problem.

It is worth mentioning that this is the second fire incident in which the zero-running car C11 was exposed this year. On January 19th, a video about Zero running C11 catching fire while driving went viral on the Internet. From the pictures exposed on the Internet at that time, we can see that the vehicle was surrounded by raging fire and was badly damaged, leaving only the shell of the car. According to personnel at the scene, the vehicle was in a normal state at that time, with thick smoke coming from the bottom of the vehicle at first, followed by open fire.

In fact, with the rapid development of new energy vehicles, the fire of new energy vehicles is not uncommon. Because the power batteries of most new energy vehicles are generally installed in the chassis position of the vehicle, it is easy for users to find it in time because of the bump or deformation at the bottom of the vehicle during driving. As a result, the battery of the chassis of the vehicle is impacted by external forces, squeezed and the structure is damaged and out of control.

Of course, new energy car companies are also increasing research and development investment in battery technology, hoping to reduce the occurrence of vehicle accidents. However, at present, the problem of fire after the collision of new energy vehicles still exists, in addition, because the speed of the vehicle fire is very fast, the probability of people on board to escape is almost zero. Therefore, the majority of consumers have been very concerned about the fire incident of new energy vehicles, and hope that with the continuous improvement of car companies' technology, the probability of vehicle fire can be greatly reduced.

Compared with traditional vehicles, new energy vehicles have many advantages. For example, it has certain advantages in energy saving, environmental protection, cost and so on. However, in terms of fire safety, new energy vehicles are still different from traditional oil vehicles. First of all, most new energy vehicles use lithium-ion batteries, which are easy to overheat and catch fire if they encounter high temperatures. In addition, most of the new energy vehicle batteries are installed at the bottom of the car, which is extremely vulnerable to damage, greatly increasing the risk of vehicle fire. The fuel system of fuel vehicles is mostly located at the bottom of the body, although it is also easy to damage, but the structure is relatively simple, the risk of fire is relatively low.

Data show that the fire occurred in the vehicle for the zero run C11, the new car positioning medium-sized SUV, is the third production car under the zero run car. The new car offers both add-on and pure power, with a price of 14.98-209800. The C11 can be regarded as the volume model of a zero-running car. According to the data, the cumulative sales of zero-running C11 last year were 80616, accounting for 55.92 per cent of the total sales of zero-running cars last year. As a reference, the cumulative sales of zero-running cars last year was 144155.
