In recent years, electric scooters from various manufacturers have experienced incidents of catching fire on public roads.

Incident Details and Online Reaction

The video, shared on X by Ather Energy Parody, depicted four Ather Energy scooters engulfed in flames atop a transport truck, prompting concerns about the company’s safety standards.

However, four other scooters on the lower section remained unaffected. While the cause of the fire is yet to be officially confirmed, speculation suggests a possible electrical short-circuit due to contact with a live wire.

Investigation and Potential Causes

Ather Energy has not released an official statement regarding the incident. However, reports indicate that a crack in the battery casing, likely sustained from a prior accident, allowed water to seep in during a routine wash, potentially triggering the fire. Further investigation is needed to ascertain the precise cause and assess the company’s response to prevent such incidents in the future.
