Вчера вечером на МКАД сгорела Tesla Model 3. Хозяин сразу отписался в нашу группу тесловодов в вотсапе, как все реально было. Утром прочитала в прессе столько х*рни, что традиционно стыдно за коллег-журналистов. Итак, вот как все было: Алексей, владелец Тесла, шел по мкад с разрешённой скоростью 100 кмч. В левом ряду стояла Газель-эвакуатор одним бортом занимая обочину, другим – часть левого ряда. В этом месте было плохое освещение и водитель не увидел, что Газель занимает часть его полосы, и Тесла и въехала в Газель. Подушки не сработали. От удара загорелась батарея. Алексей сломал ногу и разбил нос. Выбраться помогли другие водители. В машине было двое детей, они в порядке. Все остальное – бред и домыслы. Почему так повела себя батарея, не понятно Автор @ lisarulit #лисарулит #lisarulit #teslamodel3

As of now, there has been no official acknowledgement or explanation to the unfortunate accident from Tesla CEO Elon Musk.

However, this is not the first time that Tesla vehicles on Autopilot have crashed into other vehicles and exploded into flames.

Back in 2016, in a fatal accident, a Tesla vehicle on Autopilot crashed into a streetsweeper truck in China.

Until now, the automaker have insisted that it is safer to drive on Autopilot and that its vehicles were much less likely to catch fire than gas-powered vehicles, the report said.

In its latest safety report, Tesla claimed that there was a Tesla vehicle fire for every 170 million miles travelled between 2012 and 2018 compared to a vehicle fire for every 19 million miles travelled in the US.  (Agency)
