Authority debunks myth: Electric cars do not burn more than petrol and diesel cars

In an investigation, the National Emergency Management Agency concludes that there is no greater risk of fires in hybrid and electric cars than in fossil-fuel cars. In fact, it's just the other way around.

In a larger investigation, the National Emergency Management Agency has looked at fires in electric and hybrid cars since 2018. It has then been compared with fires in fossil-fuel cars. And according to the National Emergency Management Agency, the conclusion is clear. There is no reason to fear more frequent fires in electric and hybrid cars. Electric and hybrid cars catch fire less often than conventional cars. In fact, the figures show that for every 10,000 examples of what can be called a rechargeable car, there were only 2.8 fires from 2018 to 2021. According to the National Emergency Management Agency, that figure is up to 4.6 fires when it comes to fossil-fuel cars. This indicates that the electric car is not a greater fire hazard than the fossil car.

No not quite. Because even if a fire does not break out in an electric car more often than in a fossil car, there are still a number of risks associated with electric car fires. Because when it burns in an electric car, it burns more powerfully. In addition, the extinguishing work itself is more difficult and takes longer. The investigation also indicates that the smoke from an electric car on fire is probably toxic. Also more toxic than that from a burning fossil car. Just how much more toxic is ongoing research is looking at.
