After speeding and crashing into a garage, this Tesla Model X later caught fire
Old case but new questions?! This fire occurred back in 2017.
However, this new video shows for the first time what occurred after the Model X was moved to outside of the garage.
Unlike a gas-powered car fire, an electric vehicle fire may start long after a collision.
This was the case when this speeding Tesla Model X driver lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a residential garage. There may have been no fire at all, however, if there was a spark, an immediate explosion could have occurred.
Electric car fires are difficult to extinguish. While they may take some time to start and the process can be slow, dealing with a battery fire requires a significant amount of water and time. – according to Insideevs
