An electric car in china’s Hangzhou city catches fire immediately after collision today, killing four people, renewing concerns over safety of nickel-manganese-cobalt (NMC) battery.
An electric car in China’s Hangzhou city caught fire immediately after collision two days ago, killing four passengers in the car. The car was on fire instantly after hitting the toll booth, leaving no time at all for passengers to get out.
The EV was powered by NMC811 battery supplied by one of the top-tier battery suppliers. Higher nickel content means longer driving range. However, due to the high activity of nickel, high-nickel ternary batteries tend to be less stable than LFP batteries, with the former more prone to heat thermal runaway under high temperature or external shock.
