Tesla Model S Bursts into Flames in a Shanghai China Parking Garage...

On April 21st, 2019... apparently in a Parking Garage over in China... An unoccupied, White Tesla Model S suddenly experienced a flow of steam like gas emanating from under the bottom center of the vehicle and then it spontaneously bursts into a roaring exothermic, fully involved Car Fire.

Just wondering if this has been confirmed as an actual event caught on a Parking Garage Security Video Camera ...or whether or not it is something that has been created by Tesla Competitors in order to "Shanghai" and discredit the company's reputation for this electric vehicle. The Video has a very long lead in with a Black Screen prior to playing... so a little patience is in order here:

Given that China is dumping resources into the EV market with plans to lead the world in that particular segment of technology I'd say a clip of parking garage video would have to be treated skeptically. However, if memory serves there has been an incident or two domestically involving this model and fires. But quite literally one or two.

It was probably a cheap Chinese clone :laugh:

As I understand, this is the first and only incident of Tesla spontaneous combustion. Which in my view makes this very suspicious. All other Tesla fires occurred during collisions.

Guess they got a GM engineer working for them now? :rotfl:
