In the past, there have been several instances of electric scooters from different manufacturers experiencing fire incidents. In response to these incidents, the government issued guidelines for automakers to conduct inspections of electric vehicles. Several electric vehicle manufacturers initiated recalls to examine electric two-wheelers that were at risk of catching fire. Historically, high temperatures were identified as a significant contributor to battery explosions in previous incidents. Another factor compromising the safety of electric vehicles in the Indian market was the issue of overcharging, which resulted in the swelling of batteries.
