Watch Opel Ampera-e Catch Fire In Germany: Full Video

The European Chevrolet Bolt EV’s brother proves that its infotainment is built to last – it was working till the end.

[Here is one of the most interesting electric car fire videos we have seen so far, shared by Emergency-Report.de from Langenfeld, Germany, recorded on November 1, 2020.

According to the report, an Opel Ampera-e (a discontinued European version of the Chevrolet Bolt EV) connected to the AC charging point (and probably charging) caught fire in the middle of the night.

The Langenfeld fire brigade arrived at around 1 a.m. and saw the Ampera-e up in smoke. They tried to distinguish it with water, concentrating in the front area (where in conventional cars usually there is an engine), but as EV enthusiast knows, it was not too successful to direct water there. The most important thing is to cool down the battery pack.
