While some electric cars (EVs) employed lead acid or nickel metal hydride batteries, lithium ion batteries are now thought to be the industry standard for battery electric vehicles due to their longer lifespan, excellent energy retention, and self discharge rate of only 5% per month.
Although efforts have been made to increase the safety of these batteries, there are still issues with them due to the possibility of thermal runaway, which has, for instance, led to fires or explosions.
