I have an idea of how to prevent a tesla from catching fire should its battery be penetrated from road debris. Thermite... A small thermite fuse rope could be installed inside the perimeter of each of the 16 modules in the battery. Should a module catch fire for any reason, the thermite would ignite and rapidly burn its way through the bottom of the battery. The burning contents of the module would fall out onto the road, thus saving the car.
