    Solid state batteries are still a ways away. Nobody is close to having a mass producible battery. LFP batteries are safer than NMC batteries but they have much lower energy densities and lousy cold weather charging curves. NMC batteries when properly manufactured and with a good battery management are very safe. There have hardly been any Model 3 battery fires, I don’t recall ever reading a story about one. The Bolt, Hyundai and now a VW ID.3 fires all have one thing in common, LG. LG has a serious problem with how they manufacture batteries, hopefully Aptera will stay far away from them.
