The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released a statement today concluding its safety defect investigation into the post-crash   fire risk of Chevy Volts. The statement said in part, "Opened on   November 25, the agency’s investigation has concluded that no   discernible defect trend exists and that the vehicle modifications recently developed by General Motors reduce the potential for battery intrusion resulting from side impacts."
NHTSA also released interim guidance to increase awareness and identify   appropriate safety measures for the emergency response community, law   enforcement officers, and others about electric vehicles.
