Last Friday, a video surfaced online of French public transport operator RATP’s bus bursting into flames within seconds in Paris. The fire illustrates the dangers of EVs. Luckily the bus wasn’t crowded, and passengers were able to exit quickly.
AFP notes that all 149 electric buses manufactured by Bollore SA have been taken off the road.
“The bus driver immediately evacuated all the passengers. Nobody was hurt,” RATP said. The city’s fire department said the blaze took 30 firefighters to extinguish.
