+ - Owner Of Battery Fire Tesla Vehicle: Car 'Performed Very Well, Will Buy Again'

Submitted by cartechboy
cartechboy (2660665) writes "The Tesla Model S fire that, to date, is either electric car Armageddon or 'no big deal' has been fun Internet theatre combined with a dose of crowd-sourced battery-pack pseudo-exepertise. Now the actual car owner (and Tesla investor) weighs in with his take, which is, basically, "nothing to see here and yes, I can't wait to get back into a Tesla." Owner Robert Carlson Owner wrote an email in response to contact by Tesla's vice president of sales and service, Jerome Guillen, saying he found the car had "performed very well under such an extreme test. The batteries went through a controlled burn which the Internet images really exaggerates." Carlson had no comment on the guy who videoed his car fire, who is now Interent infamous for shooting video in portrait mode."
