Nailing electric audi burns down when charging
Audi AG/dpa-MAG The e-tron GT is Audi’s new electrical bolide. Now one of the vehicles in Munich burned down during the store
The series of brand incidents on electric cars does not tear off. After Opel has to call back his Ampera-e due to the risk of fire, it hit an Audi this time. The cause is not yet known.
Electric cars often hang on the line for hours – and are unobserved. This was doomed to an Audi driver in Munich, whose brand new electric sedan burned. "Around 2:15 a.m., the police received the announcement from a witness that an Audi, which was loaded on an electric charging station, had caught fire at Lilienstrabe. The fire could be deleted by the also informed fire brigade", the police share. Of the Coupe Limousine E-Tron GT, there are only charred residues left. Damage: 120.000 euros.

"At first I thought someone drove against it"
the "picture" Quotes the owner of the car with the words: "Wednesday night at 3.40 rang storm. The police were at the door and told me that something happened with my car. At first I thought someone drove against it. When I stood on the street, I saw the completely burned -down Audi.“As pictures show, not only the Audi burned out completely. The charging station is also charred. Happiness in misfortune: Since the charging station was not right next to a house or in a garage, the electric fire did not reach buildings or other cars.

The cause of the fire is still unclear – in addition to defects on the vehicle, on the battery or on the charging station, arson is possible. However, the Audi fire fits into a series Numerous fires of various electrical and hybrid vehicles of recent times, which has already led to many incidents and recalls . Even at Audi it was not the first fire incident with its still young e-models. In 2020, a young woman was burned when her Audi E-Tron rested against a tree in an accident.
Fire risk comparable to petrol engines
After all: According to experts, the fire risk of the Stromer is statistically no greater than with cars with combustion engines. However, the damage is often great due to the high heat exposure.And the effort to delete hybrids and electric cars is considerable .The problem: the high -voltage batteries can always ignite.

Brand incidents are not only available for electric cars, but also with electrical two-wheelers. In Bremen, the broken battery of an e-bike probably triggered the fire of an entire family home and caused damage of 500.000 euros.
"You have to discuss charging stations in underground garages"
A few months ago, two cities in southern Germany have banned entry for electric cars in underground garages. The main headlines made the preliminary ban in the city of Kulmbach. Politicians, including the city’s CSU parliamentary group, then put pressure on the block. Safety concerns are not a reason for entry bans, since experts would have found that there are no increased risks compared to other vehicle fires. Brand expert Traxel, a specialist in dealing with burning lithium-ion batteries, sees this more differentiated: "In principle, the fire risk of an electric car is not higher than with conventional driven vehicles. However, the consequences of a fire are much more difficult and more complicated to combat than with normal burners. One should discuss whether it makes sense to offer charging options in underground car parks."
