    Most EVs have a battery disconnect system so if a crash is detected the battery is automatically isolated.

    The battery is always “live” unless each cell has been discharged professionally, but it can be disconnected completely from the car very easily by opening emergency-disconnect contacts. EVs have been out for a while now and they know what they’re doing.
