What the car probably looked like.

Another vehicle from electric car manufacturer Tesla went up in flames for no apparent reason. The electric door lock almost cost the driver his life, trapping him inside the vehicle, German News reported.

According to a lawyer, a new Tesla top model “S Plaid” that has just been delivered went up in flames.

What it looks like now.

The driver, a company boss, was only able to use force to save himself from the burning vehicle because the electric door lock blocked, lawyer Mark Geragos said on Friday.

The car turned into a fireball shortly after rolling in a residential area in Pennsylvania. “That was a gruesome and appalling experience,” said Geragos.

Fireball

There is nothing from Tesla yet and the man’s lawyer wants the models recalled until they know what the problem is.  This isn’t the first time these batteries have caught fire like this. The particular battery in this car is new and was altered to handle new safety regulations.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk said at the car’s premiere that it was “faster than any Porsche and safer than any Volvo.” It went up in flames pretty fast.
