I imagine the amount of hydrocarbons and heavy metals released during that fire pretty much offset any environmental advantage that car would have ever created....lol

To be honest, the production of the batteries, the fact they are toxic (and non-recycable), and the fact that even if they dont catch fire the batties need replacing every 5 years offsets the difference between electric and petrol cars.
Add to that most electricity is powered by coal and petrol cars are currently the green option. Only problem is most people only look at emissions rather than the big picture.

Pretty much all of your statement is false.

Yes, production of the batteries to begin with isn't very friendly, and yes they use toxic chemicals. Have you ever looked at how toxic the production of Petrol is?
No, the batteries are very recyclable. The materials used in them are quite valuable, so it would be stupid not to recycle them.
No, they don't need replacing every 5 years. Current data suggests that after 100,000miles (a lot longer than 5 years for the average car) a Tesla Model S will still have around 94% of it's range from new.
The source of electricity varies from country to country. In Norway (the source of this story), they get the vast majority of their electricity from renewable sources, in fact they make so much they export electricity.
Petrol however uses vast amounts of electricity in its production, something that most people don't realise.

There is a lot of FUD about electric cars spread around, most of it originates with the companies who produce petrol oddly enough.
