We are talking about Hyundai electric cars, in which the fire occurred due to batteries.

The owners of Hyundai electric cars, on whose cars the battery caught fire, began to file a lawsuit. As of Thursday morning, November 19, there are already 200 such appeals. The statements say that the fire posed a threat to life and health of people, and also significantly reduced the cost of cars in the secondary car market.

It will hardly be possible to hush up this conflict, since in parallel the American auto giant General Motors is recalling 70,000 electric cars with identical LG Chem batteries. At the moment, each of the owners of the damaged cars is demanding compensation in the amount of 7,200 dollars , and the total amount has already reached 8 million won and may further increase.

Also, the owners require replacement, not repair of the batteries – in their opinion, it will be much safer and also take less time.

Note that the recall campaign affected 74,000 Hyundai Kona vehicles.
In total, 16 incidents of fire were recorded in South Korea, Europe and Canada.

Meanwhile, an electric Hyundai Ioniq 5 was spotted during test trials. The car is being marketed as a 2022 model and will be unveiled next year. Many of the features of the novelty repeat the Concept 45, on which it is based.
