French Tesla Model S Fire Was Caused by Using a Human Rather Than a Robot.


As part of its ‘Electric Road Trip’ tour for the summer, Tesla stopped in Biarritz, France to promote Model S and Model X over the weekend.

During a test drive in a Model S 90D, the vehicle suddenly made a loud noise and sent a visual alert on the dashboard stating that there was a problem with “charging”. The Tesla employee giving the test drive made the driver park the car on the side of the road and all three (the driver, the Tesla employee and another passenger) exited the vehicle.

The Tesla Model S caught on fire only a moment later (pictured above), according to witnesses.

The story is still developing. We are talking to members of the Tesla Motors Club in France and reaching out to Tesla.

Firefighters arrived quickly on the scene to control the fire, but the vehicle was completely destroyed. The result was reportedly similar to the remains of the Model S that caught fire while Supercharging in Norway earlier this year.

The update for the article was this:

Update 09/09/2016: Tesla says Model S fire in France was due to ‘electrical connection improperly tightened’ by a human instead of robots

God damned humans! Can't let them do anything!
