The blazing Model S incidents definitely damage the Tesla image and its stock price. Three Model S batteries caught fire in the past 5 weeks. And the media coverage points that Tesla cars have greater tendency to catch fire. But Tesla CEO thinks different. Instead the Tesla CEO Elon Musk said that he is not going to recall any of the Model S as "There's no reason for a recall." However, Tesla will replace the three damaged Model S cars.

 

Tesla CEO Elon Musk defends his electric car. He said there is no car more safer than Model S. Tesla CEO said, "If you read the headlines, it sounds like Teslas have a greater propensity to catch fires than other cars. In reality, nothing could be further from the truth. We have never had a serious injury or death in any of our cars. Maybe there is a car as safe as the Model S, but there is certainly not a car that is safer," during a conference on Tuesday hosted by The New York Times Dealbook blog, according to CNN Money

Elon Musk also reveals that the Tesla Model S is five times less likely to catch fire than average gasoline cars. But Tesla shares have gone down by approximately 30% after the first fire accident in October.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
