Yesterday something interesting happened. As I had stopped to pick up coffee in my Tesla, a gentleman came to me asked if I had few minutes to talk about Tesla.
He said he had placed a deposit on Tesla but no longer sure of its safety after watching the news regarding the fire. He wanted to know if I have any regrets buying Tesla. Of course the next 20+ minutes I tried to tell him how safe the car really is. I had shown him the Musk's recent press release and explain what exactly could have happened.
After that conversation he said he is convinced that he will go ahead with Model S which I was very happy to hear about.
Which brings up a very important point. The recent fire has potential Tesla customers worried. I know its only once instance but the ICE companies and dealer network is doing their best to spread the panic.
Not sure if you guys had similar experiences.
