In recent days, , In addition, the media reported that a fire accident occurred in the garage of a Volvo plug-in hybrid model in Chengdu . If the above information is true , This is the Volvo plug-in hybrid model in 8 The second similar fire accident in a day ,2021 year 11 month 30 Early morning , A vehicle burning accident occurred in an underground garage of a community in Nanjing .

According to media reports , Recently, a green Volvo caught fire in the underground garage of a community in Chengdu , There are a few videos and screenshots flowing out , There are... On the back of the uniform in the picture “ Sichuan Fire Department Chengdu squadron ” The words of firefighters are dealing with the scene .

But security is different , Whether it is safe or not is actually imperceptible , Can't be quantified . If there is no spontaneous combustion related to new energy vehicles for a long time 、 In the event of an explosion , Then consumers will naturally build up enough confidence . When the time comes , Naturally, more consumers will choose new energy vehicles .
