Tesla Model S Caught Fire In Pennsylvania, Driver Got Trapped Due To Electric Door Failure

The most expensive Tesla Model S – A popular agile sports sedan with well-controlled body motions and direct steering caught fire in Pennsylvania.

Massive fire erupted on Tesla Model S 2021 while the driver was at the wheels, trapped as the electric door failed to open, according to the local fire department and attorneys representing the driver.

The news stated on Bloomberg that the head of the digital asset group at Susquehanna International, Bart Smith, owned the Tesla Model S Plaid that burst into flames on Tuesday in Pennsylvania. Tesla Model S is known to be the highest-performing sedan ever built. It is the quickest car to 60 mph that has ever tested.

Smith was driving the new vehicle in Haverford when the incident happened, the newspaper said. His firm held about $1.1 billion worth of Tesla shares as of March 31, Smith and his representative didn’t immediately respond to any email seeking comment.

“If data or investigations show a defect or an inherent risk to safety exists, NHTSA will take action as appropriate to protect the public,”

A spokesperson for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration told CNBC

This looks a bit unusual. You don’t see electric vehicles caught fire but this is something tragic and horrifying not only for the consumers who have paid a hefty amount for the fastest ever Tesla but also for the company that has been of great value, providing top quality electric vehicles in the world.

But it can be a possibility as s NBC News recently reported, electric vehicle battery fires can take upwards of 25,000 gallons of water to be fully extinguished. By comparison, a typical car fire involving an internal combustion engine can be put out with around 300 gallons of water.

“This is a harrowing and frightening situation and an obvious major problem,” 

US Attorney

Firefighters removed the 2021 Tesla Model S Plaid to a complex to safely store it overnight, McGarvey said. The owner since had the car removed from that facility, McGarvey said, and will have the vehicle investigated independently to try to determine the cause of the fire. McGarvey said his teams had been in touch with Tesla and should release more information via public records soon.

 “Our preliminary investigation is ongoing, but we call on Tesla to sideline these cars until a full investigation can occur.”

Sources also say that Tesla has disclosed the amount of vehicles produced. The fire incident took about 3 hours to completely extinguish. However the reason of this fire is yet to be investigated.
