Tesla Model S Playing Fire or Potential Glory?

by Scott Wilson on February 16,

Is Tesla playing with literally, or potential glory. is what many are asking another Tesla model S fire in a garage in Toronto, Canada. This is not the first S to catch fire, there been five fires in as months.

Two of those fires caused by ruptured battery from loose debris on the

So what is the fuss over electric car .this Tesla S all about? There is a belief, or a by investors and the public to see Tesla Why?

Obviously all investors their products to gain and see their shares climb, is a given. The difference here is First, Tesla is working a new technology, so the desire is heightened to see it not only on an economic sense, but on a one as well.

The second, people want to see Musk, the Tesla CEO with a provide a legitimate alternative to the aspirated gasoline engine. It s the David vs Goliath match-up, Rocky Balboa driving into Detroit in a Tesla S and shouting to the manufacturers, I m coming for

At the center of the swanky Model S, it is a car, is the battery pack The battery pack may not be the soul of the but it is most definitely the heart. it, you are walking home.

It is that that is presently under by the National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA). There been related fires,

Supercharger Station

There are two of rebooting the Tesla Model S the battery is low. The first is to recharge the battery at a charging Tesla offers Supercharger that provide half in twenty minutes free of no pun intended. There are 75 Supercharger in the States and parts of Canada, and 14 in

The number will continue to and the stations are placed strategically to drivers to hop from station to on a single charge. They are placed near amenities so can have a coffee or meal the car is being charged.

The second is a battery swap. People only want to stop for a time, that do not want to to supercharge a battery, have the of a battery pack swap. claims the swap is faster filling a regular gas tank.

In the video below a battery is completed in 01:33.4 minutes, and to drive the point home, swaps two vehicle battery in the same time as one car takes to its tank.

As Musk explains, this abut is convincing the that are skeptics. There are people that take a lot of and so what we really want to here is that you can actually be convenient than a gasoline Hopefully this is what people finally that cars are the future.

Battery System

Battery packs associated problems, and it could be that Tesla is playing fire, but they may also be with potential glory. are clearly working at offering a experience. From links to installers, to smart phone that give charge reports, to positioning Supercharger at convenient locations, to cost to comprehensive walk-through videos, to year 80,000 km warranties on the and eight year 160,000 km on batteries all add up to a valiant effort. the most relevant category as talk of fires repeats is the safety category. The Model S has a 5-Star safety rating in all

That is the highest safety attainable in the States.

Confidence in the Model S is at an all time high was reflected by Tesla stock over the $200 mark on and Friday. It is obvious consumers to see a happy ending to the Tesla With exports to China on the and the new Model X, a svelte SUV, set to hit floors this year, look good. The one fly in the ointment is the pack .and it is a bloody big But all fly s can be dealt with, and if there is one Musk has demonstrated is his go to attitude.

The battery pack issue has not resolved, but Tesla wants the to believe it will be, and they a convincing argument.

As in all David and stories, there is more just a physical victory at there is an ideological one too. technology vs fossil fuel, new vs the past. The Model S epitomizes the between revolutionizing an industry, or a path of gradual evolution. On one is a man with a vision, on the other is an industry with big oil nipping at heels.

Musk refers to the of the Tesla Model S, and there are skeptics with new technology, but the key is to and prove them wrong, in case Tesla is not just with fire, they are with potential glory.
