Hangzhou Electric Taxi fire

Recent explosion of new electric taxi in Hanzhou China, 11th April 2011

Chinese newspapers have reported a serious unexplained spontaneous explosion by one of the new electric vehicles in current use in Hangzhou, China. 

No one was hurt in the fire, but officials have acted to suspend the use of the fleet of 30 Zote Electric cars that have recently been introduced into the city. Eye witnesses described how firefighters arrived within minutes, but couldnt prevent the car’s destruction. Two passengers and the driver were able to escape without injury.

No explanation has yet been given to explain the explosion but an investigation is underway to determine the cause of the fire.
