Pure EV have announced the recall of electric scooter… thorough checkup of battery related systems will be done…
So, Telangana based Pure EV have recalled nearly 2,000 units of their electric scooters consisting of ETrance+ and EPluto 7G scooters. This announcement has come in the wake of fire incidents that took place in Nizamabad and Chennai in the past weeks.
In the official communication shared by the company, they explain that the ETrance+ and EPluto 7G models will undergo thorough check-ups to find any niggles or major issues within the systems controlling the scooters. They are going to further check the batteries of the scooters for ‘potential imbalance issues’ and fix & calibrate them using their own proprietary Batrics Faraday device.
Additionally, the company will modify the calibration of the Battery Management System (BMS) and the chargers of these electric scooters. The owners of these respective electric scooters will be contacted by the individual Pure EV dealers regarding the official recall details.
Just like Pure EV, Okinawa Autotech have also announced the recall of their nearly 3,000 units of Praise Pro electric scooters and Ola Electric have issued the recall of 1,400 units of S1 Pro electric scooters.
All these recall announcements from various e-scooter manufacturers are probably the result of a ‘Stern Warning’ given by India’s Union Transport Minister, Mr. Nitin Gadkari, where he warned the companies that they should voluntarily recall their products, assess the issues and rectify the problems or else, face heavy penalties which will be applied by the Government.
