In March of last year, after a fire in a parked vehicle belonging to Tesla in Hong Kong, the company that initiated the investigation in April has not yet been able to find the cause of the fire.
Although the vehicle manufacturer has not yet identified the source of the problem, it has rolled up its sleeves to update the software of the vehicles. Tesla's software update will be done to make the batteries more durable and long-lasting.
Noting that there are more than half a million Tesla vehicles at the moment, the company said that the number is twice as high as in the beginning of last year.
The details are as follows:
… Although the fire incidents for Tesla vehicles are very rare, we think that our cars should be at least 0, although the flaming situation is 10 times less than a petrol vehicle.
As we continue to investigate the root cause, we review the today's update and the charge and thermal management settings in Model S and Model X to ensure that the batteries are longer and more durable.
This isn't the first time Tesla's got it. Just a few weeks ago, a Tesla model car parked in Pennsylvania, USA, was on fire and burnt for 4 hours.
Since 2013, a total of 14 Model S had been burst or burned, most of them with a flame after an accident.
