Impressive analysis. Thanks for posting it. As a firefighter my next question would be: are any of these electric vehicle mfg’s incorporating fire suppression either onboard or through some sort of port where a class d agent could be introduced into the battery pack? I read about a Tesla in Florida that burned for hours after crashing.

I just did a quick search and came up with: Electric and Hybrid Vehicle Fire Suppression | NFPA.
Which is inline with the standing joke around the firehouse about guidelines for many types of incidents that recommend: “apply copious amounts of water“. We arrive with 1000 gal and our tankers can deliver something around 200 GPM - hope that’s enough...
