Lime issues recall for a scooter model after reports that they can break apart

Just weeks after another recall of another model after concerns over battery fires

Electric scooter company Lime is recalling an unspecified number of its vehicles after reports that they might break apart after “repeated abuse,” according to The Washington Post. The recall comes weeks after the company recalled some of its Segway Ninebot scooters after concerns over battery fires.

The Washington Post says that scooters manufactured by Chinese company Okai could break while in use, and that Lime will recall them from every city that they’re deployed in. Lime says that those models will be decommissioned, but did not tell the Post how many units are affected, or in which cities they’re being used in. The recall follows Lime’s disclosure about the Segway Ninebot models, in which the company notified users of issues with the Okai models, saying that “it’s possible for Okai baseboards to crack or break if ridden off a curb at high speed.” At the time it noted that it was investigating the issue, and appears to have been concerned enough to issue the recall. Bird indicated that it does not utilize this particular model in its own fleet.
