Electric Vehicles Banned on Norwegian Ferry Line

This is good news.  The noxious cars were banned over fire concerns (they tend to spontaneously explode), but they are a really BAD idea for other reasons as well.  See short video below for a deeper understanding of how utterly ridiculous these vehicles really are.



Below is outstanding commentary from a friend who wishes to remain anonymous, followed by the article.


Brilliant!  A Norwegian ferry company is refusing to take electric vehicles on its ships because they have this annoying habit of spontaneously combusting.  https://principia-scientific.com/norwegian-shipping-company-bans-electric-vehicles-over-fire-fears/

Not only that, but firefighters need special training and equipment to deal with EV fires and pouring water on them makes them much worse.  I think it was General Motors that told its EV customers a year or so ago not to park within 50 feet (20 metres?) of other vehicles in case the General Motors EV spontaneously combusted.  Gosh, we’ve had lorry loads of Musk’s EVs spontaneously combusting, a ship go down full of EVs in the Atlantic last year, and much more.

The virtue-signaling morons who buy these things will be dying of leukaemia soon, so along with them hopefully we can bury this lunatic technology once and for all and just get back to our combustion engines until some intelligent and really clean vehicle technology comes along.

Too bad for the Norwegians who are going to have real difficulty getting about over all their fjords now that this ferry company won’t take their idiotmobiles any more, because the Norwegian government issued a diktat a few years ago that the whole country’s car fleet had to go electric.  What a bummer!  Ha bloody ha!

Oh, and by the way, I heard that someone was testing electric planes.  Should we introduce mandatory intelligence testing?  Oh, sorry, we did, didn’t we?  It was called “covid”.


Norwegian Shipping Company Bans Electric Vehicles Over Fire Fears

The company says that its ships are not equipped to fight a lithium-ion battery fire at sea
Norway’s Havila Krystruten is one of two shipping companies that sails between the coastal cities of Bergen and Kierkenes and says that it will no longer carry electric or electrified vehicles on its ships following the results of an external investigation.
The company mostly carries passengers and goods on the route, but now says that it will only carry private vehicles with internal combustion engines. Havila Krystruten cited fire safety as the main reason for its decision.
While it is not clear what led the company to run the external investigation, fears of fires on ships were stoked by a recent incident in the Atlantic. The Felicity Ace (pictured) caught fire at sea last year and, although the cause of the fire has not been determined, there were vehicles with batteries aboard the ship, leading to speculation that they may have been responsible for the blaze.
“This is a pure safety assessment, and the conclusion of the risk analysis shows that a possible fire in fossil vehicles will be able to be handled by the systems and the crew we have on board,” said Bent Martini, the company’s managing director, as translated by Google. “A possible fire in electric, hybrid or hydrogen cars will require external rescue efforts and could put people on board and the ships at risk.”
The problem is particularly noteworthy in Norway, which is one of the world’s largest consumers of electric vehicles. More than 80 percent of all vehicles sold in the country in 2022 were fully electric, making this decision a likely nuisance for passengers.
