Tesla S Fire? Musk Says No Flameout
Investors may be worrying about the impact of a fire that severely damaged a Tesla Model S battery car last week, but the maker’s CEO, Elon Musk is defending the electric car's design and arguing that the accident actually proves it is safer than a comparable gasoline-fueled vehicle. Musk took to the company’s blog to talk about it the fire that was caught on video and went viral. There were no injuries in the incident, apparently in part due to the vehicle’s own warning system which advised the driver to pull over and exit before the fire erupted in the battery compartment.
