Electric Vehicles need careful attention

The local auto industry has dreaded that electric vehicles would cause accidents if international standards were not safeguarded. If standards are not adopted, we must be ready for accidents like fire in the house due to charging, battery blast, unwanted operation, blast during operation etc. Besides, conversion of existing shapes into EV is equally dangerous as there is no battery latching system in the existing vehicles. Only scooter shape is suggested as it complies with UNR 136 for battery safety. Battery is a tripwire if not latched properly in the bike. There are hundreds of social experiments and disasters available on social media where one can easily see accidents due to the failure of batteries, especially in bikes. The sole advantage apart from critics is that it would help to reduce the overall oil import bill and operational cost of vehicles for consumers.
