VIDEO – China: a Tesla at the origin of a mad murderous ride

According to a verified user of the Chinese platform Weibo, equivalent to Twitter, who introduced himself as “a member of the driver’s family”, the motorist would have lost control of his vehicle over the last 2.6 kilometres. A technical problem would then have undermined his attempts to brake, say relatives.

For its part, the American company firmly rejected any malfunction. The data collected by the firm did not in any way demonstrate that the brake pedal had been actuated before the accident, specifies Tesla in a press release relayed by Bloomberg. The “video showed brake lights remained off” all the way, adds the builder. On the contrary, he puts forward, the accelerator would have been strongly solicited. Several experts put forward the thesis that the driver confused the brake and accelerator pedals.

Anyway, Elon Musk’s company said it “would actively provide all necessary assistance” local police investigation.
