Nobe’s lack of significant progress ? In numerous interviews, Muljar had made more and morepromises that were never fulfilled about when production would start, when and where factories would be built, and more. What if there may have been no engineering plans in place ? In some interviews, Nobe claims everything was lost, in others they have the plans in hand. ERR news reported “there were basically no drawings or documentation to even start preparing for mass production, which could result in a safe and compliant machine. ” Were there even prototypes that were ready for manufacturin g? Other manufacturers go through multiple levels of prototype vehicles before they are ready to begin manufacture, while Nobe has claimed to have been ‘ready’ without ever even fully completing a first prototype. Were there issues with the cars themselves ? (e.g. performance, safety, undersized, cars were not operational or were made incorrectly) An expert on EVs in a 2021 Estonian television interview shared that the engineering team in Detroit wasshocked to find that when the only Nobe prototype shipped to them arrived that it “did not operate” . Were promises made to investors that could not have been kept with these cars ? As an example, on a certain level of car functionality, a delivery date of cars just a ‘short time’ away, and the building of cars at locations around the world. Could this have been really achieved by the plans, vehicles and preparedness of the cars that went into the factory fire at that time?

Tonight at 3:58am, the Emergency Response Centre received a report of a fire in Telliskivi Street in the northern part of Tallinn. The rescuers who arrived on the scene started to extinguish the fire and to contain the spread of the fire to an adjacent office building and a furniture store.
"We drove out to the highest, or fourth, level of departure. This means that we went with a large force, which in turn means that there is a lot of work to do," explained Jane Gridassov, Communications Manager of the Northern Rescue Centre. "The building was burning very close to a residential and office building that was next to it, and on the other side was a furniture building, which meant that in addition to the extinguishing work, we had to protect the adjacent buildings."

"The removal work finished a little after seven o'clock this morning and in fact it is only today that the investigators will go there. They are inspecting and looking over the scene and collecting materials," Gridassov said, adding that it was not yet possible to say what might have started the fire.
The occupants of three houses near the fire were evacuated from their homes while the fire was being extinguished. In the houses next to the one affected by the fire, life went on as usual.

"It was a big blow, our first two test pieces, historic cars, were destroyed," Muljar says in a sad tone. The NOBE team would have liked to give them to a museum in the future as the first NOBE prototypes. However, the team has continued to develop the car in the meantime and

Meelis Merilo, Nobe's small shareholder and technical advisor, admitted that the biggest damage was to the first two cars that burned up. "After all, they were pure craftsmanship," he noted.
On the positive side,
Although Nobe has been actively promoting itself at every turn, the
Nobe's founder Roman Muljar has said in the past that his idea is to create something new but timeless. "The Nobe is the kind of car that everyone would want to try, just because of its stylish and distinctive look. It's an environmentally friendly and powerful electric car that catches the eye and provides a memorable driving experience."
The Nobe car can accommodate three passengers at a time, and there's plenty of room for luggage. Combined, the main battery and the mobile battery allow a maximum range of 270 kilometres on a single charge and a top speed of 110 kilometres per hour. The special electric Nobe models on sale are available in three different colours: blue, red and black.

According to a spokesman for the Rescue Board, a U-shaped building complex with a garage and production buildings burned. The buildings are the production buildings and garage of the Estonian three-wheeled electric car Nobe. The adjacent furniture building was also in danger, but was saved.
Rescuers evacuated three people from a nearby building, one of whom had carbon monoxide poisoning. During the night, traffic was disrupted at the beginning of Telliskivi Street due to the fire.
The fire was extinguished at 7:17 in the morning. The exact circumstances and causes of the incident will be determined in further investigations.
Roman Muljar, owner and leader of Nobe Cars, told Postime that he had been on the scene all night. He heard about the fire at around 4am.
"Now we are thinking about how to proceed," he said and
