A Tesla owner was on his way to a golf course in Vancouver, Canada, when his six-month-old Model Y was stopped at an intersection. After that, the car closed the doors – the man was still inside – and thick smoke began to rise.
The event was recorded and shared on social networks by a witness in the middle of the street. As the minutes passed, the fire devoured the car.

In the recording, he can hear how the driver recounts the scene: “I swear to God, all of a sudden my car stopped. He just said ‘Wrong Wrong’ (…) Then all of a sudden, the battery started to smoke. I got out of my car and called the fire department (…) I’m not kidding.”
The driver managed to get out of the car after he broke the window and escaped from the fire.
Apparently, the system that allowed to open the doors of the Tesla Model Y did not work as it should at the time.
A report from the El Motor division of El País highlights this This isn’t the first time a user has reported problems with their Tesla car.
In the past months, the brand has invited 54,000 vehicles for a review due to a possible failure of the autopilot.
