NTSB Head Warns of Risks Posed By Heavy Electric Vehicles Colliding with Lighter Cars

12 Jan 2023 | Abstracted from NPR

"Jennifer Homendy, raised the issue in a speech in Washington to the Transportation Research Board [noting] that an electric GMC Hummer weighs about 9,000 pounds...roughly the entire weight of a typical Honda Civic.

"To achieve 300 or more miles...of range per charge from an EV, batteries have to weigh thousands of pounds...Setting up a charging network to accommodate that may be a mistake from a safety perspective."
