    At the FD meeting we were told about impound yards having to build concrete storage areas for damaged electric cars because of the batteries.
    It takes about 4,000 gallons of water to put out a lithium battery car fire.

    So if Tesla ends up in the water somehow - - - I guess the batteries are sealed enough to prevent this from being a major problem.

    This is because if there is a possibility the batteries were damaged in an accident there is a possibility, they can spontaneously combust due to extremely high humidity or rain
    Never try to tell me it can't be done
