BB, the bus fire was one point in the article, the main point is that electric busses are junk and the municipalities that have them are decommissioning them.

These make sense:
Yes, they do. Highly specialized units with a single purpose. Industrial.

So much for "off peak" lower cost charging.... The whole article is good, but i like the following paragraph the best.

"Chevrolet last year advised owners not to charge their vehicles overnight or keep their fully charged vehicles in garages. It recalled more than 60,000 of its Bolt electric vehicles over concerns about the cars spontaneously combusting while parked with full batteries or charging, after reports of five fires without prior impact damage. "

If the manufacturer doesnt suggest it, it likely isnt safe. Of course Tesla had no comment.
