Watch this Tesla Model S Explode for no Apparent Reason
Tesla cars, so hot right now
Another Tesla catches fire, this time in an underground garage in Shanghai. And even though the car wasn't in a crash, it just burst into flames for no apparent reason destroying itself and a rather lovely Audi parked next to it. Bad! Bad Tesla!
After a second or two of huffing and puffing the white smoke underneath it, the whole Model S goes red and yellow and orange, which is a bad combination of colors when the car is white.
Here is also the aftermath of the incident which looks more like a horror movie scene.
Needless to say, the news spread like wildfire and Tesla was quick to respond: “We immediately sent a team onsite and we’re supporting local authorities to establish the facts. From what we know now, no one was harmed,” Tesla said in a statement on Monday."
"Charged by SuperCharger to 350km hours ago. Got into fire,1hour after parked underground. No charge then, bought this test drive car at 30% discount. 3 year, 60Km total." said the fireball owner.
The incident happened at the worst possible time for Tesla - just as it was presenting the new advancements in autonomous driving to the investors.
