Cars of Chinese automaker "BYD" catch fire

Local Chinese auto media reported online videos of "BYD" cars catching fire on roads.

It is not yet known what caused the fire and whether there were any casualties.

The car on fire seems to be BYD Han


The car that is on fire in the video is suspected to be the BYD mid-size luxury sedan "Han EV".

The doors, rear compartment, and hood of the car were all open, and it seemed that the fire started from below the car body.

The video is suspected to have caused the phenomenon of "thermal runaway" that is often mentioned in the case of a battery electric vehicle fire. Although firefighters have put out the fire, the fire is still unabated.

BYD has also entered the Japanese market

On July 21, 2021, BYD announced the launch of the small car "DORPHIN (Chinese car name: Dolphin)", the crossover SUV "ATTO 3 (Chinese car name: Yuan Plus)", and the sedan "SEAL (Chinese car name: Seal)" in Japan these three cars.

Although the model launched is different from the "Han EV (Chinese car name: Han EV)" that caught fire this time, BYD claims that the battery pack "blade battery" mounted on the battery electric vehicle can suppress thermal runaway even if the battery is damaged. The resulting heat generation is safer than conventional batteries.

If the electric vehicle that caught fire this time uses a BYD "blade battery", then this video will raise questions about its safety.

Also cooperated with Toyota

Suspected BYD test car of "bZ SDN" commercial car

At Toyota's BEV strategy-related briefing session held in December 2021, BYD was mentioned among its partner companies.

Toyota has announced that it will cooperate with BYD to supply batteries, but it is unclear what the specific content and model are.

What kind of effect the cooperation with BYD can bring to Toyota, netizens are anxious about this matter and have anticipation to react to it.
