Tesla Model S battery reignited twice after crash, NTSB reports

Recommended Posts

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) today released a report regarding a Tesla Model S that crashed in Florida, killing two and injuring one. The report states that, after extinguishing a fire that consumed the vehicle, the battery again caught fire while being loaded for removal from the scene. The battery caught fire again when it arrived at the storage yard. Both times, the fire was extinguished.

This isn't the first time that a Tesla battery has reignited following a collision. It also happened following a Testla Model X Crash earlier this year in California, which is still under NTSB investigation as well. While that might stoke fear in those not familiar with EVs, re-ignition

isn't only feasible, it's something that needs to be monitored by all parties involved.
