A Tesla Model S has been recently crashed in the United States into a utility pole, causing a blackout.
The driver of a brand new Tesla Model S has crashed his ride into a utility pole recently, in Murfreesboro, TN, managing to blackout local power for a few hours. The driver was rushed to hospital but no serious injured have been reported. The responders had to contact the company directly:
“Before police could release the electric vehicle to be loaded onto the flatbed wrecker, they had to secure information on how to turn off the Tesla Model S. Officials received technical instructions, and the all electric 4-door car was shut down.”
We know that this isn’t one impressive news compared to the ones which can be found in this section but the irony of the “new Toyota Prius”, the Tesla Model S, the world’s first luxury electric sedan, hitting an electric pole and causing a blackout caught our eye. The Tesla Model S is available in three versions, with 420 HP (310 kW) and 600 Nm (443 lb-ft), with 360 HP (270 kW) and 440 Nm (325 lb-ft) and with 302 HP (225 kW) and 430 Nm (317 lb-ft). The Model S is being assembled in Freemont, California.
