Government may ask Ola, Okinawa to recall their electric two-wheelers

Four incidents of fire involving electric scooters made by Ola Electric, Okinawa Autotech and Pure EV have been reported in the past couple of weeks, triggering fear among EV users. One of the incidents involving an Okinawa scooter reportedly led to the deaths of a man and his daughter in Tamil Nadu. The road transport and highways ministry recently opened a probe into the incidents.

The instances of fire not only pose a challenge to the companies involved but may also impede the growth of eco-friendly electric vehicle sales in India and derail the country’s efforts to become a manufacturing hub of such vehicles and batteries.
