Tesla is urgently investigating a video that appears to show one of its cars exploding in a Shanghai car park.
The video, first posted to social media in China, shows a Tesla Model S billowing smoke and then bursting into flames.
According to the timestamp on the video, it was recorded on Sunday evening. The footage also shows serious damage caused to the cars parked next to the Tesla.
The video’s authenticity has not yet been verified and the cause of the apparent explosion is unclear.
However, a spokesperson for Telsa told Sky News: “We immediately sent a team onsite and we’re supporting local authorities to establish the facts.
“From what we know now, no one was harmed,” they added.
