A little more than a month ago the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration concluded, that despite much publicity to the contrary, the Chevrolet Volt is no more likely to burn than any other vehicle on the road.
Here's what Autoblog.com wrote on January 21:
The result finds that "no discernible defect trend exists" and "Based on the available data, NHTSA does not believe that Chevy Volts or other electric vehicles pose a greater risk of fire than gasoline-powered vehicles."
As if to punctuate that point, the video above was taken by someone at Superior Chevrolet in Lawrenceville, New Jersey and posted yesterday to YouTube. It shows a burning Mercedes at the entrance of the dealership.
Sitting in the foreground of some of the shots of the burnomg Mercedes is a Chevy Volt.
