New controversy for Tesla. As he prepares to join his family for Christmas Eve, a Tesla driver discovers that his car battery is nearly dead. The reason ? The reloading that did not take place because of the cold wave that is currently affecting the United States.
Poisoned Christmas present for a Tesla car owner. Yesterday evening, on the sidelines of Christmas Eve in the United States, a Tesla user was forced by his car to change plans for his feast day. Indeed, while the owner of the car wanted to join his family to celebrate New Year’s Eve, the dead car battery, forced her to abandon her festivities. However, the driver had anticipated his exit. Indeed, throughout the day, he had tried, in vain, to recharge his vehicle.
After testing on different chargers, ultra fast, normal, home or away, the battery always showed the same percentage of charge. After 15 hour rechargethe vehicle was still displayed autonomy of 30 kilometers. Worse still, warning messages about high battery temperature forced the Tesla owner to stop charging at some point. A worrying event as the cold only reached -7°C in the United States yesterday.

A nightmare end of the year for Tesla?
A sad New Year’s Eve for this user just like Tesla. Indeed, this story comes just a few days after the latest model (Model S) of the American brand caused a pileup between 8 different vehicles. Driving then on the highway, in autonomous mode, this accident put on the table, once again, the safety on board Tesla vehicles. Indeed, the autopilot designed by the American firm is the subject of several investigations for identified inconsistencies that could endanger Tesla users as well as other motorists. As a reminder, this same model (Model S) had already been suspected, earlier this year, of having caused the death of three people inside the vehicle.
