How many gas engine car fire videos have you seen lately?
Few to none.................reason: no news value(translation: no ad sales value). Remember the Pinto and the 70s Chevy PU?........ fires all the time. And, ask your big city FD about it for the truth. Tesla fires do not occur any more than is typical for all types of cars and, if the real truth were ever told and good luck with that, surely less often, statistically. This "fire news" is no more than a crock.
Tesla is 2 for 2 in Fires when something hits the battery.
In Safety tests, battery was not hot because they didn't drive the vehicle for an extended period before slamming it into the wall. There will be many more fires with Teslas in a wreck and one day someone will get crisped in a flame. How many points does the stock lose on that day?
