Was reading about fires. The battery can’t be protected, per se, as the car IS the battery.

And how easy it would be to cheat on crash testing. (Which wouldn’t surprise a bit; pharmaceuticals, anyone?)

So. In a crash with a jalopy and everyone walks shakily away, it’s quick-roast and crunchy with a battery car. A Mattel.
