I wasn’t trying to say they are super dangerous. Just that it takes active participation to stay safe. Something that some people aren’t ready for or capable of.
I have rarely seen a vehicle fire due to fuel leaks or a gas tank rupture in a crash. I have seen tons of cars burn down from electrical problems. Adding tons of cells and energy seems like it naturally will lead to fires. Until the safety features are all figured out and operators behave accordingly.
I’m definitely not anti-electric. I work around high power electronics professionally too. In my opinion, electricity is much harder to contain safely and control in a bad situation than liquid fuels.
Hopefully, all current EVs have accelerometers (like airbags) that isolate the cells in an impact. If not, they should.
