This is what happened to my husband and his car today. No accident,out of the blue, in traffic on Santa Monica Blvd. Thank you to the kind couple who flagged him down and told him to pull over. And thank god my three little girls weren’t in the car with him

Probably thermal runaway from lithium batteries, so if gas would have been non issue.

Many folks out here struggling to pay their rent / mortgage. The struggle of owning a Tesla super car must be real.

Petrol and diesel cars on the other hand....... U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated average of 152,300 automobile fires per year in 2006-2010. These fires caused an average of 209 civilian deaths, 764 civilian injuries, and $536 million in direct property damage.

Well yes, but it shows that car fires are nothing new and singling out one manufacturer because they are new, popular, trying to upset the status quo, and good for clicks/views seems a little unfair. The only vehicle fires that make national news are Tesla ones, why?

Because it's new tech and is (rightfully) being watched very closely. It's just like how a self-driving car in a fender-bender will make headlines but not your standard dope who was following too closely.

Yep... he has invested heavily in Lithium batteries.,. Magnesium batteries are the way to go. More dense in charge. Common element. Not poisonous or flammable...

this is making me reconsider getting a plug-in car ... i don't recall any news stories of gasoline powered cars spontaneously catching on fire but this is far from the first one with a BEV ...

It doesn't have a gas tank, so no serious explosion can happen, either caused by an overheated battery cell or some wire short circuit, but when the fire starts the heat would cause other cells and tires to release gasses that fans the flames

If a gas car had caught fire...it would have exploded killing everyone in it.

Dude. She’s not talking about the inconvenience of her Pruvey car not being the exact shade to match her overpriced designer purse. The car is on FIRE. FFS, man.

How many people? Greater than or equal to the amount of people that die in normal gas cars.
