Unscheduled Battery Blowups Turning Electric Vehicles Into Mobile Time Bombs

Those who read my comments for some time must have seen me saying this for years now. There is no way to confidently predict when a given Electric Vehicle will blow up. Aside from the obvious risk to those in the vehicle, there is also the risk to bystanders. Can we accept that one of those monsters blows up beside a kindergarten? Or a hospital? Or a retirement home? Or under a bridge? Reinforced concrete does not take exposure to long-lasting fires too kindly. Will we have to take buildings down after an EV burned for two days in its underground parking?
