Land Rover explodes causes other cars to explode.

ICE cars really should be banned - just too dangerous to leave parked unattended :)

I agree. ICE vehicles are also poorly made and unsafe in an accident. Carbon monoxide is also deadly and causes cognitive disorders.
I won't park one in my garage.

Yeah and no electric car had ever burned and simply snap a finger and the fire goes out right.
A rational person understands once there are an equal number of EVs on the road we will see more light up. Right now they are few and new.

I wonder if Land Rove will have to pay the bill.
This goes into more detail. The cheap plastics ICE vehicles mixed with gasoline created temperatures of 1000 C.

Also a 20 gallon tank of gasoline is like 200 sticks of dynamite on explosion I believe. It must have been like a war zone.

Yes, EVs catch fire too. But they don’t typically burn as fast as a gasoline fire which would give a person more time to exit the vehicle unharmed. That’s ultimately what matters.

17 ICE fires/hour or 148,000 fires per year. Tesla 6 billion miles doing fine.
