Yes . The cargo ship "The Fremantle Highway" came from Germany .
EV's are like ticking time bombs ! An environmental disaster is coming up !

Only thing missing is any proof an EV is more dangerous than an ICE.

I do like your summary, "...they have more threat vectors..." - No idea what this means but it is awesome.

I doubt you would accept any proof I provide.

Can you prove that an ICE fuel system is more dangerous than EV? You want to start a new circle-jerk?

Yes, big & specific words can have that effect on people.

No. I never said it was. I would never claim the ICE was more dangerous without having proof to back it up.

Electric cars are involved in 50% more traffic accidents than their petrol and diesel counterparts, according to a study by insurer Axa.

The high number of accidents has actually nothing to do with the technology, but everything to do with the driving behaviour of the drivers. It is mainly the fast and sharp acceleration that surprises drivers, especially those new to the cars, and leads to accidents.

The current lithium-ion batteries are extremely hard to extinguish. And an electric car has thousands of batteries. For the fire brigade, the only solution is often to immerse the car in a container filled with water for a number of days. There are cases where electric cars were taken out of the water tank after a few days and yet caught fire again. This is a problem that remains a challenge for the manufacturers and the emergency services.

https://www.brusselstimes.com/287315...es-study-shows

OK who here didn't suspect EV drivers of driving like idiots in their "Green" car?

And I've not said that EV's are more dangerous, just that they have more threat vectors = more ways to fail for those that are not well read.

I've owned a lot of battery operated electronic devices in my life, of multipel battery chemistries, over a very long span of time. The only ones I've ever had with "thermal problems" are Li-ion batteries. scaling this up to batteries 100KW+ or more in size is where the problem lies. charging a 1000-3000 pound Li-ion battery in an enclosed residential setting while soundly asleep is a risk some of us are just not ready to take. Those that feel that way aren't crazy.

Sure it was . If your EV catches fire in your garage why wouldn't it catch fire at a cargo ship ..
It clearly simple why both Cargo ships caught fire and it won't be the last time .

Who could've seen that coming, you produce a car that weights about 50% more and accelerates about 50% faster and then are surprised that idiots crash it at higher rates. Nothing to see here folks.....move along.

You have proof that EV's are more dangerous than ICE's?

Dude where were you this entire thread?

These people are clueless. Let's monitor this progress in one year increments. I already shitted on another dudes theory back in december 2021 and he remained silent when december 2022 came around.

Let the cheerleaders do their hip hop hooray right now in 2023.

It's not a race it's a rally!

This doesn't prove the EV is more dangerous. Once there is a fire it is very difficult/dangerous to put out and this fire department needs new equipment to fight it. You need injury statistics, frequency of fires by number produced, something to show that the individual car is more dangerous. Could be the fire itself is more dangerous to fight but the EV rarely catches fire, or they are constantly catching fire and are also far more dangerous fires.

So you have the proof just not the time/interest to look it up? We both know this doesn't make sense.

Great, now you point out you also haven't said EV's are more dangerous. Thanks, we both agree. I also haven't said which is more dangerous because I really don't know.

I find these places both strange and disappointing. Mob mentality has them come to an agreement, like all "EV's are bad", "EV's are dangerous", it's black/white, good/bad, and when someone comes in and asks for proof it's like some crazy accusation against them. Nothing personal, I won't believe it until it is proven, sorry.

Great that you bring up the prius. I have always thought of Tesla as the prius part 2(only without the toyota build quality). Efficient butt ugly and destined to be around for a while and no one says wow when they see one.

So I'm going to suggest that there are countless storys about how dangerous EV fires are, about how they are involved in more accidents as a percentage than ICE vehicles. But I guess you need to wait for some government agency to do a 10 year study to confirm what people who deal with this on a daily basis are saying. No need to reply because I suspect we won't come to an agreement on it. Cheers.

Research by another firm, AutoinsuranceEZ, says battery electric vehicles have just a .03% chance of igniting, compared to internal combustion engine vehicle’s 1.5% chance. Hybrid electrics, which have both a high voltage battery and an internal combustion engine, have a 3.4% likelihood of vehicle fires according to their study.
if we believe your article the ICE is 50 times more likely to catch fire (.03% to 1.5%). Hard to believe but you posted it. How does this help your cause?

The point is that there are real issues with EV's when they catch fire and that they are heavier with quicker acceleration than ICE vehicles. To just dismiss those issues is short sited.
