Tesla gets more bad press with its Tesla S catching fire during test drive

By Faiming_low on 16 Aug 2016 in Other News

Attached Image According to Electrek, a Tesla Model S 90D caught fire in France during a routine test drive last weekend. It was reported that the accident happened during a test drive within the brand's 'Electric Road Trip' across Europe event when the car 'made a loud noise' and displayed a warning on the dashboard that there was an issue with charging.

Sensing something amiss, the Tesla employee in the passenger seat told the driver to pull over before the car burst into flames. By the time the firefighters responded to the fire, the car was completely destroyed. No one was hurt in the incident.

A Tesla official is said to be cooperating with the local authorities with the fire investigations

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?

Anything to do with electricity or petrol will have a chance for potential fire.

Even NASA space shuttle was on fire before.
