USA: NHTSA Hosts Technical Workshop: Discussed Safety of Electric Vehicles

Government and industry leaders today gathered in Washington, D.C. for a technical workshop hosted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to discuss a wide breadth of safety and regulatory issues pertaining to electrical vehicles.

The conference comes on the heels of several high-profile investigations that NHTSA has launched into fires possibly caused by lithium-ion batteries in electric vehicles.

The agency announced today that it is conducting a preliminary investigation, or “field inquiry,” of a garage fire in Texas that scorched a Fisker Automotive Inc. Karma — the startup company’s $103,000 plug-in electric sedan.

NHTSA Administrator David Strickland said in a statement that the agency hosted a “robust dialogue” as government agencies, battery makers, automakers and safety personnel discussed new research, regulations and other issues pertaining to electric vehicles.
