China: BYD Executive Says Electric-Car Battery Didn’t Cause Crash Fire

BYD Co. (1211), the Chinese electric carmaker backed by billionaire investor Warren Buffett, said the fire that engulfed an e6 taxi after a crash last month wasn’t caused by flammable fluids leaking from the batteries.

The fire was probably caused by either the tires or a cable when the cab crashed into a tree, according to BYD’s Senior Vice President Stella Li, citing initial findings from two external investigation teams. The battery fluids didn’t leak before the blaze, she said.

“Our e6 is a safe design,” Li, who is based in Los Angeles, said in an e-mail. “All details will be released soon.”
