Just one day before EIKE reported on burning electric vehicles in China, the electric car curse hit Hanover.

A fire in a bus depot in Hanover caused damage worth millions. According to the fire department, the fire broke out on Saturday afternoon at the Üstra transport company, where electric buses were parked.
According to Üstra spokesman Udo Iwannek, the fire caused millions in damage. Five e-buses, two hybrids and two combustion engines were destroyed, as well as the building and the charging station.
According to the European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE), Hanover’s administration only wants to drive e-buses in the city center by 2023 and is buying 50 new vehicles to reduce air pollution.
It has been shown that electric buses catch fire very quickly. For example, four shuttle buses went up in flames in Guangxi, China last month:

It is really not a good idea to park e-buses close together.
According to Jörn Künzle on Facebook:
Although fires can happen anywhere, they become critical and dangerous when it comes to electric vehicles. An affected battery acts as a powerful fire accelerator through a chain reaction and must also burn out completely, which can take up to two days. In February, Kulmbach in Bavaria was the first German city to close underground garages for e-cars.
Regardless of the many question marks behind e-mobility, the city of Hanover pushes it ahead with hooks or crooks, especially under its Green Mayor Belit Onay.
Numerous technical and practical problems in electromobility are still far from being satisfactorily solved. And anyone who is only a little familiar with the subject also knows that e-mobility is by no means as good from an environmental and “climate protection” point of view as we are always led to believe. And it is particularly bad that the left-wing green media are silent about the event. “
