The gases escaped the battery safely. After the explosion, the battery was still in tact. It sounds like the explosion was caused by those gases trapped in the containment chamber. Perhaps they need ventilation. Part of the point of these chambers is to collect the gasses and see if they are formed at a safe level.
The problem seems to be chamber design or safety procedures. The batteries were not at risk of fire in normal circumstances, but this is a fail for making the chemistry unchanged in a production vehicle. We don't even know if this was a proposed spark battery or something else.
There are probably a few more. But, look at the sales volumes at March Dashboard Hybrid Cars vs Prius and think of the installed base.
All the mercedes, bmw, vw, porsche designs have lithium chemistries also. There were a lot more buggy whips than cars at one point in time, but we don't see many today.
I would assume this is the last generation of nimh batteries, as prices are assumed to drop on li chemistries to be bellow nimh in the near future. They have been blowing up batteries for a long time in test chambers. Nothing to see here other than the chamber did not contain the gasses well enough.
These new batteries are much more powerfull, but don't need to be more dangerous.Geoff Brumfiel His editing duties include climate and environment, while his reporting focuses on the intersection of science and national security.
