The trend of electric cars and electric bikes is continuously increasing in the country. The government is also giving discounts on its purchase, so that people buy it in maximum numbers. This will not only save money spent on purchasing petroleum products, but will also reduce pollution. But, incidents of fire in electric vehicles create doubts in the minds of people.
