electric cars and bikes (Hilo)

Question: How in the world can anyone in their right mind think that electric cars and bikes are a viable technology in Hawaii, when it is almost impossible to ship lithium batteries to the islands? This is because they are deemed extremely hazardous to ship. Apparently they are also a hazard in vehicles and are known to cause really difficult fires to extinguish as a result of crashes, during charging and sometimes just spontaneously combust. While the rest of the drivetrain of electric vehicles is efficient and clean technology, it might be prudent to wait for a better, safer battery technology before deciding electric is the way to go for Hawai'i.
