Tesla Model S Catches Fire (For a Third Time)


We see a pattern emerging…

The first fire was the result of a freak accident, the second after a drunken driver lost control and crashed into a tree. So what about the third Tesla Model S fire in as many months? Well, it took place in Tennessee and as per the first fire incident, pictures of the EV show the front end ablaze. Valuewalk was the first to see the snaps and Tesla has already been in touch. “We have been in contact with the driver, who was not injured and believes the car saved his life. Our team is on its way to Tennessee to learn more about what happened.

We will provide more information when we're able to do so.” Should Tesla owners be worried? The NHTSA thinks not, having recently declared the Model S one of the safest cars of all time. Accidents happen, and cars catch fire. Teslas are no different and with more models on the road and the spotlight firmly fixed on Tesla’s stock price, whenever one is seen on fire, news sites are going to jump on it. No doubt Elon Musk and his team are working on a solution to stop this ever happening again as we speak.
