InsideEVs Logo

Sometimes people do really weird things with their cars and electric cars are no exception, despite their high price tag.

Update: Los Angeles police are offering a reward of $1,000 for any information that could lead to the arrest of the driver of a rental Tesla car. See the tweet below:

This is a new video, shared by Alex Choi with an extension Tesla Model Swhich jumped into the air somewhere in San Francisco last night and crashed badly.

After a hard landing, the car crashed into some boxes and a parked car. All airbags exploded. The front of the car was badly damaged, but the damage appears to have hit all the elements. This means that it could be a very costly total loss.

According to the description, it was a new rental Tesla car, valued at about $150,000 (most likely Plaid). Fortunately for the people who took part in this dangerous experiment, no one was hurt (at least according to the information).

“I’m happy to say, no one was hurt. It’s just funny, so it doesn’t happen. It wasn’t me driving. Please, don’t try this at home. I had no idea this would happen. I’m not condoning recklessness.” Behavior that endangers the lives of others. Everyone is lucky to be alive.”

Some videos were also viewed via Twitter:

The scene appears to be the same as in the case of a celebrity Tesla Model X A few years ago.

At that time, it was performed during the day and at a low speed, but it was nevertheless very dangerous.

Hopefully, the latest crash will calm some drivers, who believe that if they had a Tesla, anything was possible and everything would be fun.
