Tesla Model S Explodes in China

Tesla investigating apparent explosion of parked car in Shanghai

Additionally, Tesla says these updates help to improve 0-60mph performance times for all Long Range and Standard Range models, with more power and torque.

There have been at least 14 instances of Tesla cars catching fire since 2013, with the majority occurring after a crash.

Deliveries dropped last quarter by nearly 30,000 cars from the preceding period as the US shrank tax incentives and amid delays in shipments to consumers in Europe and China.

Before the latest incident, the USA media have reported several Tesla vehicle burning accidents.

While the Tesla was damaged, the vehicle was transported to a nearby shop for inspection, where it apparently caught on fire yet again. Electric cars are increasingly using high-density lithium batteries to extend their driving ranges, as demand for the vehicles climbs. "We are actively contacting relevant departments and supporting the verification".

In March, Tesla was also on the receiving end of a labeling mix-up at Shanghai customs that led to a temporary suspension of clearance for a batch of Model 3 cars.

A video of the incident went viral on Chinese microblogging platform Weibo with the hashtag "Tesla self-ignites".

Tesla's goal is of course full autonomy, which the EV-maker has already announced for the Model 3, and judging by this footage, we're not far off from being able to trust the system to navigate most, if not all main roads.

"After learning about the incident in Shanghai, we immediately sent the team to the scene last night", Tesla said in a Mandarin-language message on its official Weibo social messaging account.

Tesla has since issued a statement on the event, stating it's now investigating. Tesla has claimed that its vehicles are ten times less likely to experience a fire than a petrol-fueled vehicle based on its 500,000 vehicle fleet with more than 10 billion driven miles.

Elon Musk is yet to comment on the event but did just unveil plans for its own autonomous vehicle ride-sharing service during the Tesla Autonomy Investment Day.
