There isn't a failure mode. It's referring to the fact that the batteries failed and exploded. You can Google up "electric bus battery explode" and you'll see cases like this. This is why you're not allowed to bring lithium batteries on planes because they can fail, ignite, and explode very rapidly.Very, very, very bad look. Also, um, what kind of batteries do these things have that their failure mode is "explode"???
