Tesla Model Goes Up In Flames During Test Drive

 Wednesday, August 17, 2016


You might remember a few years ago that after three Tesla Model S sedans caught fire, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration stepped in and opened an investigation into the series of fires, and Tesla made changes to the vehicles based on what happened. Now another fire has happened in France. This isn’t the first reported Tesla fire in Europe this year. In Norway, where a government subsidy for electric vehicles has made Tesla a popular brand, a Model S caught fire at one of the automaker’s Supercharger stations due to a short circuit. The company made software changes related to charging after that incident.
