What is the chemistry difference? Are Tesla battery packs really more vulnerable to fires? Why?TonyWilliams wrote: There's a HUGE difference in the reaction of the LEAF battery chemistry than the chemistry of the Tesla, which REQUIRES temperature control, or there would be a whole bunch more fires!!!
The LEAF and Volt have many times more fleet miles than Tesla, yet AFAIK, not a single fire caused by the battery in either vehicle other than the well publicized fire in the Volt weeks after a crash test.
What can Tesla to do prevent it? If its battery chemistry seems that they can't fix it. More protection? Fire retardant?
