Electric car burnouts!

From here:

A Zotye Langyue/Multipla EV serving as a taxicab burst into flame Monday afternoon in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, prompting the city to halt all electric taxis on safety concerns.

Firefighters rushed to the scene in minutes but couldn’t do much as the car quickly turned into a big fireball, and then ashes and an empty, back shell. No one was injured; the driver and two passengers in the vehicle got out in time.

They've got a nice little collection of burning or burnt out electric buggies.

Seeing that electric car burnout, have you caught this parody ad Ben Howe did for the Chevy Volt? It's hilarious:
