EV automaker and Tesla-competitor NIO has said that it is now probing another one of its ES8 models that "caught fire" in Shanghai on Thursday. The probe comes after another ES8, in the city of Xiían, caught fire about three weeks ago. It's the fifth electric vehicle fire in China this year.
In the most recent incident, the NIO vehicle "flared up and emitted a choking cloud of smoke yesterday on the startup's home turf of Anting Town," according to Yicai Global. The fire was quickly controlled by firefighters and there were no casualties reported.
NIO took to social media yesterday to say they didn't know the cause of the fire, but that they had opened an investigation and would notify the public of their findings.
