If you flip a model s on its side and shoot heavy sharp objects at it will the battery protect the occupants, but catch fire vs a ICE car that will just let the object fly through? My ICE cars floor boards are pretty thin, old ones have rusted through. Seems to me like the battery could act like a bullet proof vest. Youtube "Road Debris Impales Car" first one by "Dangerous Trailers.org". You would be dead if you had been in the back seat. I will take a warning to get out and watch my car burn over that.
