July 17, 2023

AN urgent warning has been given to drivers of a popular electric vehicle after it is thought to have “self-combusted,” sending flames into the air. Eugenio Mereu, 36, watched the electric car blazing and billowing black smoke on the side of the street this morning, leaving him fearful the same could happen to his identical vehicle. The cause of the fire has not yet been established and the car may have been stolen, according to cops. Mr Mereu's car incidentally matches the one that now sits burnt out on the street, it is reportedly the "same car, same colour, same year." 3 Eugenio Mereu says the fire was so strong he could hear it cracking from his house Credit: SWNS
