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
