Default Tesla spontaneously combusts (video)

Probably BC, I've not heard anything about this from the Vancouver WA area.

Just one more example why tech, these days, scares me.

Those fumes have got to be toxic!

Did the fire department ever show up? Or did they just let it burn?

I considered a Model 3 when they announced them to be manufactured and you could be on the waiting list with $1k down. If you didn’t like the car. You would simply say so and your money would be refunded. I went to a nearby showroom and sat in one. But the seat support was lousy and very uncomfortable. The dashboard was very clean and uncluttered. Unlike today’s dashboards. I was going for the longer range model. But ultimately decided against the purchase.

Red exterior with the white rims and white interior would have been my color choices.

I'm just curious as to what they plan on doing with the batteries when their life is up...

I'm guessing the batteries will be buried in the Earth. Right alongside the nuclear rods that power those nuke plants.

I work with a guy whom maintained the nuclear power plant and those rods in San Onofre, Ca.

He ain't right...
