"Yes they're selling like mad!"the car has caught on fire?
the car has caught on fire?
It is the first thing someone says to me when they see my car or learn that I drive one. The power of the media is strong and boy have the oil and ICE companies done a good job of spinning it up.
I typically just say "no" and ask if their gas tank has been punctured recently.
I got a fire extinguisher as a "Christmas"gift from one of my colleagues. She pointed out that the extinguisher is certified to work on "battery"fires.. We had several sessions of Q/A regarding the tesla fires earlier. I am planning to give her a "gas card" with a note..' Thanks for the fire extinguisher that I may never need- but here is the gas card that you will need today'
You are absolutely right.. But the data will fly straight over her head.. But the gas card will keep her happy and make the work environment tolerableI'd re-gift/return noting that while driving/refueling an ICE car is far more likely to catch on fire with current data and most likely going to only be more in favor of EV's being safer going forward.
