I bought a small 1kg fire extinguisher for my car. However, I'm not sure where should I mount or store it. It should be readily available for emergencies, but at the same time it must not endanger anybody in the case of an accident.

The best place for it is on the floor, just in front of the passenger seat. It's easy to get to from the driver's seat and in the case of a head-on collision, the only way it can go is away from your girlfriend's/wife's pretty face. But definitely mount it. And buy a proper mount that was designed to allow you to easily remove it in case of an emergency. There's no time for fiddling with Allen keys or a socket wrench when stuff's on fire.
I think you have to mount it where you can reach it easily when there is a need. You can put it under the driver seat or in front of the passenger seat. In case, if you get into an accident, the extinguisher that was under your seat will be easily accessible.
