Spontaneous Combustion Risk Causes Nio to Recall 5,000 ES8

Chinese company NIO is now recalling around 5,000 of their already sold vehicles between early April and October 2018. It is more than a quarter of the 17,550 already in customers hands.

The battery packs inside the ES8 SUV have a defective module which could lead to overheating and spontaneous combustion, as a report by KrASIA stated. NIO won’t be charging the replacement.

It is not the first time the company faces problems in the market. After a $1.4 billion net loss last year, NIO closed offices in the US and erased plans for a Shangai Manufacturer.

Even though the adversities, the Chinese company started the delivering of the ES6 SUV just mid-June.
