Musk's new Tesla car spontaneously burned to the sky, the owner escaped

According to local fire officials, a 2021 Tesla Model S Plaid sedan caught fire in Haverford, Pennsylvania on Tuesday night while the owner was driving.

According to the owner’s lawyer, the owner noticed heavy smoke from the rear of the vehicle during driving and tried to open the door, but the door appeared to be malfunctioning and he had to squeeze out of the car. After he left the car, the vehicle began to move by itself and was engulfed by flames.

Local fire officials said that two groups of firefighters worked at the scene for more than three hours to deal with the emergency.

According to a recent study, a fire caused by an electric car battery requires 25,000 gallons of water to be completely extinguished. In contrast, a typical car fire involving an internal combustion engine requires only about 300 gallons of water to extinguish.

At the press conference last month, Tesla CEO Musk once said that Plaid is a “crazy” car, an electric car that is faster than any Porsche and safer than any Volvo.

Delivery of this model was originally scheduled to start in February this year, but it was later delayed. Musk explained in April this year that the development process “faces more challenges than expected”, adding, “In order to ensure the new S and X The battery is safe and we have spent a lot of time on research and development.”

A spokesperson for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said that they have learned about the Tesla car fire in Pennsylvania and are contacting relevant agencies and manufacturers to collect more information about the accident. He said: “If data or investigations reveal flaws or inherent security risks, NHTSA will take appropriate action to protect the public.”
