There is historical evidence to support this, and also many players have indicated that they believe the chariots as they are now are too strong. I just cannot fathom anybody using even a heavy chariot as a side-blinded battering ram. I think they may have seemed to have this effect to chroniclers, but only because they were being used to pursue an already broken enemy line. Also, a fragile (but agile) fifty-pound light chariot would be useless for a frontal assault, its most effective use must have been as it was designed, as a firing platform. The horses of the chariot era were small, think of the chariot as a precursor to the earlier saddle.
