The automaker claims that its Blade electric vehicle battery has been appreciated worldwide and it has set new benchmarks in terms of safety. The carmaker also claims that the Blade battery is the only EV battery that successfully passed the nail penetration test, which is considered the most rigorous way to test the thermal runaway of batteries.
