Nissan: “There Have Been No Fires Involving the Nissan LEAF”
Following the 3 Tesla Model S fires, there’s been a remarkably high level of discussion involving electric vehicles and fire.
The Model S has been the center of these discussions, but several other electric vehicles have been associated with the word fire in the past.
Both the Chevy Volt and the Fisker Karma previously had some fiery media headlines (as have a few other EVs), but never the Nissan LEAF.
As the world’s best-selling electric, there’s a strong chance that the LEAF will eventually be linked to some sort of fire, but that hasn’t occurred yet.
According to a Nissan spokesman,
“There have been no fires involving the Nissan LEAFs, either through extensive and extreme testing or in the real world.”
