Tessin : Un automobiliste s’est tué jeudi dernier près du tunnel du Monte Ceneri. Selon les pompiers, la batterie de sa Tesla serait à l’origine de l’incendie.
Les causes de l’incendie d’une Tesla jeudi au Tessin suscitent la controverse. Selon un message des pompiers de Bellinzone sur Facebook, un problème de batterie pourrait être en cause. Le constructeur américain appelle à la prudence. L’enquête en cours n’a pas encore livré ses résultats.
L’automobiliste allemand de 48 ans a, pour une raison inconnue, percuté la glissière centrale de l’autoroute A2, près du tunnel du Monte Ceneri (TI). Son véhicule s’est alors renversé et a pris feu. Le conducteur a péri sur les lieux de l’accident.
10 Mai 2018 : Teenagers killed in fire after Tesla crashes, battery bursts into flames
Safety investigators in the US are investigating a crash in which the battery of a Tesla electric car caught fire, burning two teenagers to death.
A witness to the crash in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, said the Tesla Model S was being driven fast and spun out of control. It then crashed into a wall and caught fire.
Police said two 18-year-olds were trapped and died when the car became engulfed in flames.
Another teenager was thrown from the car and was taken to a hospital, where his condition was unknown.
The witness said he tried to help the teenagers but the fire was too intense to get them out of the car.
Lithium-ion batteries like those used by Tesla can catch fire and burn rapidly in a crash, although Tesla has maintained its vehicles catch fire far less often than those powered by petrol.
