It is tragic and am grateful I have a safe vehicle that doesn't use gas. Anyone keeping track of these vehicle fires?
Sorry seems to have posted twice?
Highway vehicle fires reported to local public fire departments in the United States numbered 172,500 in 2012 - 62 million registered cars in U.S. so 1 in or .03%
Tesla "While Tesla has not said how many the company likely sold between 18,000 and 20,000 Model S cars in the U.S. during 2013.
Added to that are about 2,600 sold in 2012"Could not find anything more precise. I think last year there was 3 reported fires. .01%.
The main point is that there were 0 deaths in Tesla
