New 3-wheel Vectrix compared with Bill Dube's KILLACYCLE; Bill exhibits sanguine good manners when asked if his KILLACYCLE can't maybe fly, too?
A picture of Bill's 9.1 kWh lithium pack, 11 parallel by 110 series cylindrical A123 batteries.

I recall one EV-enemy, one Mr. R. Craven, who used to attend CARB each time ZEV was up for reconsideration; purporting to be a fireman, Mr. Craven used to exclaim that "EVs would burst into flame when in acccidents, and we can't put them out", as I recall. But Bill's KILLACYCLE was in a small encounter with a van, with few ill effects; and of ALL the EV accidents, NOT ONE involves fire.

While Bill's pack is 9.1 kWh, that's the energy equivalent of less than a third of a gallon of gasoline. The real danger is gasoline fires, not batteries!!
