This Is Not How Tesla Wanted To Start Off The New Year

Accident

In a massive ball of fire.

The Tesla Model S may be the answer to all of life’s questions, but that doesn’t mean the vehicle is faultless. It can destroy supercars in a straight line and can even burn to the ground like one. According to a report by state news agency NRK reports, no one was injured as a Model S caught fire at a Supercharger station in Norway. While facts are still being revealed, the Model S owner attempted to recharge the electric vehicle at a Supercharger station and left the vehicle to do some shopping.

What the owner came back to was a Model S that was completely burnt to a crisp and was barely recognizable. Not a good way to start 2016.

When police arrived on the scene, the vehicle was already charred and there was no way to save it. The cause of the fire is unknown and police have stated that they will conduct their own investigation of the vehicle, as well as the charging station to find out the true cause of the fire. To put out the burning lithium batteries, firefighters had to utilize special chemical foam. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen a Model S burn to the ground, but it is the first case of a Model S catching fire when being plugged into a Supercharger.
