EV CAR EXPLODES WHILE CHARGING - Read my pinned comment - Original title dead wrong.

The original editor or one of them along the way, was a dumb fuck who jumped to conclusions, instead of studying the issue closely. He was dead wrong.

If you download it and then run it at about 0.2 or 1/5th speed from 6 seconds onwards, you can see that red thing that has hit the guy, is actually a blown open LNG tank - you can see the thing has been split wide open - big jagged edges and a very fucking nasty impact..... It's like a flying bear trap.
The tank has split inside the rear of the car, and that has blasted out the back end of the car, releasing a cloud of cold LPG gas, and the tank has shot through the car, sent the bonnet flying, and shot across the car park through the air, hit the wall and then bounced back and hit the guy.....
In ultra slow motion - the BIG jagged edged of that tank - like Fuck Me....
That might have blown up from a spark if it reached a stoichiometric mixture with the air in the trunk. That gas sinks and doesn't float away if it is propane. The valves leak some time. One spark when it is at the right ratio with air and its a bomb. I just think it's not the battery in this case it was the gas can that led to the explosion. That hit was brutal. I hope the guy was able to recover.
