Why do Tesla's electric cars burn for hours after a crash

Why do Tesla's electric cars burn for hours after a crash

The 4-door 2016 Tesla Model S was northbound near the 1300 block of S. Flamingo Road shortly before 4:30 p.m. Sunday when "the vehicle left the roadway for unknown reasons", police said.

Police in South Florida say the driver of a speeding Tesla was killed after apparently losing control while swerving through traffic.

A police officer arrived nearly immediately after the crash but wasn't able to rescue the driver before the vehicle was engulfed in flames. This is analogous to any vehicle remaining locked on the outside after a crash, keeping people from being able to physically open the door.

A spokesman for the NTSB said Monday that it is not investigating the Davie crash. The vehicle was estimated to have been traveling at speeds as high as 90 miles per hour, police said.

"We have a problem where the auto keeps catching fire because the battery pack itself hasn't drained yet", said Davie Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Robert Diferdinando.

The five sensors can capture up to 1,200 layers of depth information and create ultra high-resolution depth maps. Oh, and that new feature phone? You can also record 4K HDR videos with Spatial audio capture using this device.

A deadly weekend auto crash in Davie involving a Tesla caused even more alarm when the vehicle's battery reignited several times after being towed, but it isn't the first time the technology has posed a challenge for emergency responders.

While the list is short, there are other cases within the last decade where electric vehicle batteries - especially in Teslas - have caught fire, and not all of them were caused by crashes. "Right now, we're doing literally what Tesla wants us to to." he said. Firefighters extinguished the fire using 200-300 gallons of water and foam.

Tesla dedicated to Riley a new speed control feature that allows drivers to limit the car's speed between 50 miles per hour and 90 miles per hour.

A Tesla spokesperson said the company is "deeply saddened" by the accident and is willing to coopering with local authorities.
