Ideal ONE is on fire again! This time it’s rear-ending a Weilai EC6

NIO ES6 and Ideal ONE are typical representatives of new car-making forces. Both models have established a high-end image from the beginning, which is very rare among domestic car manufacturers.

People are famous for their rights and wrongs, and so are cars. Recently, some netizens broke the news that an Ideal ONE caught on fire after rear-ending a Weilai EC6 on the highway. Fortunately, both drivers and passengers were unharmed.

Judging from the exposed pictures, both cars suffered varying degrees of damage after the collision, with the Ideal ONE catching fire not far away from the front of the car.

The rear of the nearby Weilai EC6 was severely damaged and deformed. The rear trunk glass was cracked, one side of the bumper was dented, and the taillights were cracked.

Some netizens said that the force of the rear-end collision was not small, but it did not cause a fire. It seemed to be an oil circuit problem. The overall rigidity of NIO was not bad, but the ideal materials were not enough.

Currently, the cause of the accident is under investigation, and NIO and Ideal officials have not yet responded to the accident. Weilai and Ideal are both teammates and rivals. If a rear-end collision occurs, they are enemies.

In fact, this is not the first time that Ideal ONE has had a collision and fire accident.

At around 16:09 on August 6, 2020, an accident occurred in a driving Ideal ONE on the Erguang Expressway in the direction of Sihui and Lianzhou in Zhaoqing City, Guangdong Province, causing the vehicle to catch fire.

The cause of the accident was initially determined to be that an object suspected to be a piece of iron was rolled up by a high-speed vehicle and penetrated the high-pressure oil pipe, causing fuel to splash and ignite at high temperatures in the exhaust pipe.

On May 8 last year, on the streets of Changsha City, Hunan Province, an Ideal ONE caught fire due to foreign objects adhering to the interior of the vehicle's front cabin.

According to the live video circulated on the Internet at the time, a large amount of thick smoke came out of the cabin in front of the accident vehicle and was accompanied by a fire. After the open flame was extinguished, the front face and front hood of the vehicle were almost completely burned.

NIO ES6 is positioned as a pure electric medium-sized SUV, with an entry-level model priced at 358,000 yuan; Lideal ONE is positioned as a medium-to-large SUV, priced at 338,000 yuan.

As a new force in car manufacturing, the safety issues of NIO EC6 and Ideal ONE have attracted much attention from consumers, and have triggered heated discussions: Which one is safer among the two?

At the beginning of this year, the two cars were tested in the same batch at the China Insurance Research Institute. However, the actual performance of the two cars in the collision test was quite different. The Weilai EC6 can be said to have passed with a high score, while the Ideal ONE was equivalent to passing by the line.

The A-pillar of Ideal ONE is obviously deformed, with cracks visible to the naked eye; the middle and lower parts of the B-pillar cover are obviously peeled off and everted; the main driver's door sill is obviously broken and deformed; the instrument panel is obviously intruding into the cockpit, and the distance between it and the calf is relatively large. Close; the angle between the big and small legs is about 90 degrees, and the feet are submerged in the collapse area.

The main driver's airbag is not fully deployed and can only provide partial protection; the side air curtain is deployed too short and cannot be protected if the dummy leans forward 45 degrees to the left; the seat belt has poor binding force on the dummy and the front side of the airbag appears. Too much.

From time to time, new car-making forces have safety issues such as fires and power failures, but this does not seem to affect their recognition by consumers and the capital market.

Data shows that the sales volume of Ideal ONE in October reached 7,649 units, a year-on-year increase of 107.2%. NIO EC6’s sales in October were 921 units, a sharp decline.

As a model of "new car-making force", the performance of NIO ES6 is not ideal. Its sales volume in October was only 2,528 units, a year-on-year decrease of 6.2%, which is somewhat contrary to the overall situation of the new energy market.

Say a few more words

Problems have arisen one after another, and "Cheluluhua" believes that this needs to attract sufficient attention from consumers and manufacturers. After all, no matter how beautiful the appearance is or how long the battery life is, it is not as important as the safety of the car.

As a car company with a growing number of users, Ideal ONE has the most basic responsibility and responsibility on how to make good products and how to ensure product quality and safety. After all, car safety is no small matter.
