Two self-igniting electric vehicles in recent days add new safety and environmental concerns.
In Hanover, Germany, an electric bus caught fire, luckily no passengers. The building near the bus was also damaged in the accident.
Extinguishing such a bus is practically very difficult, even pointless without the necessary specialized equipment, so the police wait for it to burn, only securing the perimeter.
The other incident is from Sacramento, United States, where a Tesla Model S self-ignited while driving, luckily with no injuries. They reportedly used 22,000 liters of water to cool the battery, but the extinguishment itself occurred after the battery and the front of the car burned.
