What is an Electric Vehicle Accident?

An electric vehicle (EV) accident refers to a collision or incident involving an electrically-powered vehicle such as an electric car or a hybrid vehicle. With the rising popularity of EVs and their increasing presence on the roads, it is important to understand the nature of these accidents and how they differ from accidents involving traditional gasoline-powered vehicles.

Electric vehicle accidents can result in various types of injuries, ranging from minor to severe. Common injuries include whiplash, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and death.

The global stock of electric cars surpassed 3 million vehicles in 2017, after passing the threshold of 1 million in 2015. By 2019, that number had swelled to 7.2 million. [1] 

How Are EV Accidents Different?

The main concern with lithium-ion batteries is thermal runaway, which can occur if the battery is damaged or punctured. This can lead to battery fires and pose a safety risk to both the occupants of the vehicle and nearby individuals. Although EV manufacturers have implemented safety measures to prevent thermal runaway, accidents involving battery fires can still happen. [2] 

It takes at least 2,600 gallons of water to put out a battery fire, and handling the battery or moving it can make it more prone to reigniting. [3]

EV accidents may occur due to a variety of reasons, similar to accidents involving gas-powered cars. These reasons include driver negligence, design defects, or manufacturing errors.

To prevent electric vehicle accidents and promote safety, both EV manufacturers and vehicle owners must take precautionary measures. This may include implementing advanced driver assistance systems, following proper maintenance protocols, and adhering to traffic laws. 

Currently, it’s estimated that around 1 percent of the 250 million cars, SUVs, and light-duty trucks on American roads are electric. [4] 

How Are EV Accidents Different?

Common Causes of Electric Vehicle Accidents

One of the primary causes of electric vehicle accidents is driver negligence. Just like accidents involving traditional gasoline-powered cars, distracted driving, speeding, and reckless behavior can lead to accidents involving EVs.

Design defects or manufacturing errors can also contribute to electric vehicle accidents. Although EV manufacturers have implemented safety features, there may still be instances where design flaws or manufacturing mistakes result in accidents.

These defects can impact the vehicle’s performance and may lead to brake failures, electrical malfunctions, or other issues that compromise safety on the road.

Another common cause of electric vehicle accidents is the negligence of other drivers. Some drivers may not be accustomed to sharing the road with EVs or may disregard traffic laws when interacting with these vehicles. This can lead to collisions or other incidents that put EV drivers and their passengers at risk. 

Accidents involving electric vehicles can occur due to environmental factors. Extreme weather conditions, such as heavy rain or snow, can make roads slippery and increase the risk of accidents for all vehicles, including EVs.
