Chevy Volt fire explodes into federal investigation of electric car safety

The wrecked Volt apparently caught fire in the parking lot of NHTSA's crash test facility in Wisconsin a full three weeks after the initial crash test. According to the exclusive Bloomberg story, the fire was large enough to burn vehicles parked in the vicinity of the car.

Leave it to Chevy to be 'that guy' and ruin electric cars for the rest of us, lol.

This was actually bound to happen in some form or fashion. The voltages and amperages in an electric car are enough to kill a man instantly. And with the knowledge on how to handle this in crashes not prevalent like it is for gasoline powered cars presents an opportunity for some unlucky people to learn by experience and stir the public.
