Burning electrical automotive, three-engine Audi E-Tron, Samsung battery plant: right now’s automotive information
The three-engine versions of the E-Tron SUV and Sportback are almost there. Electric car fires are less common than gasoline car fires, but there are a few nuances. And will there be a new battery plant in Illinois? This and more here at Green Car Reports.
Samsung SDI is the main battery supplier for Rivian’s upcoming electric trucks – in the 2170 format, which Tesla is using for its Model 3 and Model Y. And the area around Rivian’s Normal, Illinois assembly plant is reportedly one of the finalists for a U.S. battery plant.
Audi has presented the US specification versions of the three-engine 2022 E-Tron S models in SUV and Sportback form. The lineup starts at $ 85,895 with an expected nominal range of up to 212 miles.
And fires in electric cars are less common than in gasoline vehicles. That is the supreme reality that cannot be emphasized enough – although we need to understand the nuances of why EV fires are treated more. It’s not just “novelty,” as Tesla puts it.
