It is one of my serious concerns with EV’s, they will be safe when new but what about when it is fifteen years old and some moron is tying to fix it? People will die and in a very unpleasant manner
Do you experience annual severe salt induced corrosion where you live? An unused brake disc will be destroyed in a year in the UK without good use and a PETROL fire is easy to extinguish, a burning LithumIon fire is a little more taxingWith regenerative braking, the rotors/pads on EV's should be lifetime parts! Plus, they are the exact same parts as gas/diesel vehicles, so the same moron could send a tank of flammable gasoline into a crash trying to change the brakes on one of those.....
