Tens of thousands of electric cars and hybrids have been recalled due to fire hazards. The battery can spontaneously catch fire while charging or driving, warn manufacturers BMW, Hyundai and Ford.

The fire brigade previously advised against charging electric cars in a parking garage because of the large fire that can occur if the battery catches fire. There have also been films of Teslas that suddenly ignite for some time.

In recent weeks, BMW and Ford have recalled their plug-in hybrids. What exactly is going on is unclear, as is when the problem has been resolved. Hyundai recalled 8,000 electric cars to the garage in the Netherlands alone. Of the model Kona, 16 worldwide would have caught fire in the past year. With the hybrid Ford Kuga, there have already been 7 fire incidents in Europe.
