It's Contagious: NIO Electric Car Spontaneously Catches Fire In China

Just hours after we were the first to break the story about a Tesla spontaneously combusting in a parking garage in China, it appears a NIO ES8 electric car suffered a similar fate. A self-proclaimed Tesla owner in Shanghai that Tweets under the name @ShanghaiJayIn posted video of what appears to be a NIO vehicle being extinguished on his Twitter profile early Monday morning. 

NIO's microblog said the vehicle was under repair and caught fire in the northwestern city of Xi’an on Monday afternoon. 

Nio has launched an investigation to determine the cause of the fire,” Nio told Reuters.

The Twitter user also posted a photograph of the aftermath of the fire, showing what appears to be the carcass of a NIO ES8. The video can be seen here:
