    Robert MTLRobert MTLпреди 6 дни
    • @Robert MTL are you kidding me? Electric cars don’t have gas engines so they have huge storage space in the front that act like massive crumple zones if a car gets into an accident and their center of gravity is very very low making them very very difficult to flip. An electric car is safer in almost every way due to their design

      TJTJпреди 3 дни
    • @TJ Yes, I do. Saying an electric car is much safe is not true and there is no data that says otherwise.

      Robert MTLRobert MTLпреди 3 дни
    • Do you prefer being seated a meter away from sitting behind thousands of explosions and a tank full of flammable gas? Electricity is much safer than gas cars since their circuits need to complete before they can do any damage.
