  1. 3 of the tires are still inflated, and the fire wasn’t even long enough to completely burn the 4th one. with all this going on, the battery didn’t ignite. if this is an attempt at “hurr durr evs are a fire risk” fud, it actually does a pretty good job proving the opposite – imagine if an ice car caught fire right around where the gas tank is usually located.

  2. Egyptian here.

    There’s a reason that VW has separate lines coming out of China for 3rd world countries. There are virtually no safety standards there. So they are making more profit per unit they sell from an id4 coming out of China.

    If you look at the undercarriage of a car in Egypt vs one in the US, you wont have to be a mechanic to see what I’m talking about.

  3. armchair expert here.

    looks like it started at the charge port [as he says in the first picture], to the wires and went into the interior. While keeping the exterior pretty intact. even the underside (first photo at the rear door) looks even untouched.

    So.. the question arise. was it charging with a faulty charger or with a charger which didnt had a breaker for cases like this.
