Close call: Electric bike battery explodes in Puri, family narrowly escapes

On Wednesday night, an electric bike battery detonated close to a family in Puri, Odisha, almost killing them. The bike’s battery suddenly exploded when it was parked by the side of the road, making a loud noise and spewing smoke. Fortunately, the family, who were just a few metres away, were able to flee the scene without getting hurt.

Soon after, the police responded to the scene and quickly roped off the area to begin an explosion-cause investigation. This incident makes it clear that there should be enough safety precautions in place and that electric bike batteries could pose risks.

More severe safety laws should be implemented for the production and usage of batteries for electric vehicles, according to experts.  The use of electric bikes has grown recently as more individuals choose them as an economical and environmentally friendly alternative to conventional gasoline-powered bikes.

Concerns regarding the incident’s impact on battery and electric car safety have been raised. The cause of the battery’s explosion is unknown, but an inquiry is being conducted right now. Police have asked users to use electric vehicles with the appropriate safety precautions and to report any instances of battery explosions or other similar events.

This incident serves as a reminder to the general public of the possible risks associated with electric vehicle batteries and the requirement for more stringent safety measures to be put in place.
