    TCD wake up! Chinese manufactured vehicles are not safe! They are cheap and mass-produced. No airbags, cut away zones, crumple zones, or even basic A/B/C pillars. These particular models are not meant for commuting any more than a golf cart is meant for towing a boat. Imagine if this car was full of kids in the back, it could’ve been much worse. Hopefully the driver recovers.

      What information/data are you basing your assertion on? Clearly the roof of this EV was cut away by the Fire Service to gain access to the occupants. They would have done the same for an ICE vehicle if access to the occupants was restricted due to damage from a crash. Airbags only deploy when impacted in the area they are located. As reported in this case the car rolled on its side. Side airbags are not mandatory in any vehicles (ICE or EV) in Bermuda.

    Hmm… a motor cars and an electric car. Both have motors, I think!

    China has different safety standards than the rest of the world, as we can see. This is like a sardine can opened.

      In the event of an accident where everyone involved is observing the speed limit you’re probably a lot safer in that thing than on a bike of any sort.
