Tesla Model S Plaid caught fire while driver was at the wheel, says fire chief

#1
A 2021 Tesla Model S Plaid sedan caught fire Tuesday night in Haverford, Pennsylvania, while the owner was at the wheel, according to Charles McGarvey, chief fire officer for the Lower Merion Township Fire Department.

Tesla began deliveries of the Model S Plaid, a new high-performance version of its flagship electric sedan, in June, after CEO Elon Musk had said on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast that they would begin in February.

Musk explained in April that development involved “more challenges than expected” and added, “it took quite a bit of development to ensure that the battery of the new S and X is safe.”

Tesla's concerns about China continue


Around 300,000 Tesla Model 3 and Model Y vehicles in China have to get an update due to software problems. For the US electric car maker, concerns in China had recently increased. The e-car manufacturer Tesla is having problems with almost 300,000 vehicles in China due to software problems. A function in assisted driving could be activated by the driver inadvertently, which could result in sudden acceleration, said the Chinese authorities State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR). A free online software update should be made for the vehicles it further. That means that most of the cars probably don't need to be brought to the workshop. The majority of the vehicles that receive the software update were built in China.
