Description
 
Report on the Nat. Highway Traffic Safety Admin. (NHTSA) safety defect investigation into the potential risk of fire in Chevy Volts that have been involved in a serious crash. The agencys investigation has concluded that no discernible defect trend exists and that the vehicle modifications recently developed by GM reduce the potential for battery intrusion resulting from side impacts. NHTSA remains unaware of any real-world crashes that have resulted in a battery-related fire involving the Chevy Volt or any other electric vehicle. NHTSA continues to believe that electric vehicles show great promise as a safe and fuel-efficient option for Am. drivers. However, as this report indicates, fires following NHTSA crash tests of the vehicle and its battery components and the innovative nature of this emerging technology led the agency to take the unusual step of opening a safety defect investigation in the absence of data from real-world incidents. Based on the available data, NHTSA does not believe that Chevy Volts or other electric vehicles pose a greater risk of fire than gasoline-powered vehicles. However, electric vehicles have specific attributes which this guidance discusses. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
