Experts say the extra weight and power of some EVs could pose a safety risk in accidents

"With as fast as many EVs are, braking could be as bad as a problem as their weights are. And as Motor Trend pointed out with the Hummer EV, the laws of physics won’t save you. It would be beyond easy to get into a situation where you’re traveling way too fast to stop for another vehicle, a pedestrian, an animal, or anything else. You might not even be able to slow down enough to make a corner if you don’t lift and brake soon enough. This is a crazy amount of weight moving ridiculously fast on all-terrain off-road tires, and the laws of physics are merciless."
