On April 22, an NIO ES8 caught fire in Xi'an while undergoing repair. There were no explosions or casualties in the incident. 
On April 30, NIO provided the results of its analysis of the cause of the fire on its official Weibo website. Investigation shows that, before repairing, the vehicle had suffered an impact on the chassis, causing a serious deformation of the cooling plate and the left-rear part of the battery pack. The battery pack was compressed for a period of time which finally led to a short circuit and combustion.
NIO announced that they will check vehicles which have experienced serious impacts on the chassis if the car owners contact them.
