One, glad to hear you weren't permanently injured. Two, if that is indeed the best course of action with an EV, then clearly the technology was released to the general public for sale FAR too soon! I mean, really; just set it aside in a non-crowded area for the fire and the toxic fumes to burn off?? Okay, try doing that in the heart of Manhattan on a crowded afternoon. Or, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, etc. If THAT'S the answer, I would love to know the names of the greedy, moronically, irresponsible, worthless excuses for a human-beings who decided to release this technology clearly before it should have been!Second link basically says the same thing I did-let it burn. There really seem to be no other good options for a burning EV.
None of us should be discussing the merits of EVs. This is a conversation our grand-children should be having after decades was spent perfecting this technology.
