    Battery fires in EVs happen and compared to gas/diesel fires, tend to be local and intense. I've seen BMW i3 shells from fires that consumed the vehicle. But fire hazards come with any technology, especially the new.

    The irony is that EV battery fires need to become more commonplace before they're no longer treated as news. Of course that will eventually happen, as EV sales grow over the coming years; but I think the statistics point rather strongly to battery-related EV fires happening considerably less frequently than gas/diesel-related fires in ICEVs. So it may take awhile.

    It's sad that the news media does not report right along with every report about an EV fire that EVs are, and continue to be, much safer in terms of fire hazards than gasmobiles. It would be responsible reporting and a good public service if they would do so.
    :(
