Anyone remember the Volt used in crash testing that later spontaneously combusted .[/QUOTE]

Pretty much every Volt that combusted had a physically damaged battery such that electrolyte or coolant escaped. The electrolyte is a very volital material with a low ignition temperature, the coolant tends to rapid discharge the battery.
