Electric Car Risks Different, Not More, Says NHSTA Official
Electric cars including Tesla Motors Inc. (TSLA:US)’s Model S pose different risks than gasoline-powered models while being as safe overall, the top U.S. auto-safety regulator said.
“We believe they don’t pose any greater risks than gasoline-fueled vehicles,” David Friedman, deputy administrator of the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, said in an interview today at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
“Do they pose different risks? Certainly,” he said.
