Indian automaker Tata Motors said on Thursday it was investigating an “isolated thermal incident” after a video posted on social media showed the company’s electric car going up in flames.
The video, which has gone viral, showed firefighters trying to put out the fire in Tata Motor’s Nexon EV car in the city of Mumbai. Reuters was unable to independently verify the video.
“A detailed investigation is currently underway to establish the facts of the recent isolated thermal incident circulating on social media. We will share a detailed response after our full investigation,” Tata Motors said in a statement.
The incident follows a spate of fires on e-scooters in the country that have caused a stir, as well as an investigation by the Indian government.
