Nissan LEAF Battery: Indestructible?

Nissan LEAF BatteryIn the last year there have been a couple of instances where electric vehicles (EVs) have caught on fire. These cases have been extraordinarily rare, and none have included a Nissan LEAF. Even so, someone decided they would test their LEAF battery to see how it reacted to some damage and fire. Lucky for us, they decided to record it.

According to the video, your Nissan LEAF’s battery can take plenty of abuse. We don’t recommend trying this at home, but the video shows someone piercing their LEAF battery with a screwdriver several times before attempting to light it on fire with a blowtorch.

Incredibly, not only did the battery seem to resist catching on fire, but it also retained most of its charge throughout the assault. We’d say that’s a pretty legitimate testament to the durability of the Nissan LEAF battery.
