Another luxury electric car maker is taking drastic action in light of financial trouble. Chinese firm Byton has told The Detroit Bureau and The Verge that it’s stopping operations for “at least” six months due to financial struggles exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Most China-based workers will be furloughed, with just a “small group” staying active in case they’re needed, according to spokesperson Dave Buchko.

The decision comes despite Byton having the support of state-controlled car giant First Auto Works, although Buchko noted that Byton had made it further than many of its rivals with a completed factory and a handful of EVs produced to clear regulatory tests. With car markets reeling, though, the company didn’t know when it would start shipping cars, let alone find enough paying customers.

Raging car fire erupts on Manhattan Bridge in NYC

A raging car fire ground traffic to a halt on the Manhattan Bridge.

Stunned New Yorkers looked on early Saturday evening as flames and dark clouds of smoke began billowing from the hatchback shortly after 6 p.m., the FDNY said.

“Stay safe new york city. caught this fire on manhattan bridge, feels like out of a movie,” one Twitter user posted with a video of the fire.

The car, stopped near the middle of the span on the Brooklyn-bound side, was completely engulfed in flames before firefighters could place the blaze under control around 7:30 p.m.

No injuries were reported. It’s not immediately clear what caused the fire.
