E-cars do not burn more often, but more dangerously than incinerator vehicles. Is that why the electric vehicles will soon be banned from parking in underground garages and multi-storey car parks?
Berlin – When electric cars burn, things get dangerous: In the event of technical defects, the battery can release up to ten times its charge in heat. This creates temperatures of more than 1000 degrees Celsius – the entire passenger compartment ignites within a minute. In addition to the extremely high temperatures, there is a risk of electric arcs and electric shocks of up to 1000 volts.
Flammable e-cars: ban in multi-storey car parks and underground garages?
The charging stations also pose a high risk of fire in the event of malfunctions. At the beginning of the year, parking garages in some cities in Germany had already banned electric and hybrid cars.
As Kreiszeitung.de * reports, this is mainly due to a circumstance that makes it difficult to extinguish electric vehicles that have caught fire – and can therefore be responsible for entire buildings being burned down. * Kreiszeitung.de is an offer from IPPEN.MEDIA.
