BIARRITZ, FRANCE — Questions are being raised again concerning the safety of Tesla cars after a brand new Tesla Model S P90D burst into flames during a test drive in France.

Tesla hosted an event in the French city of Biarritz over the weekend to promote its Model S and Model X cars.

According to Redditor 3dkSdkvDskReddit, who posted a photo of the burning car online, a couple were test driving a new Tesla Model S P90D accompanied by a Tesla employee on Sunday.

As they were driving, they suddenly heard a loud noise, and the dashboard showed a “Problems with charging” visual alert. The Tesla employee quickly guided the couple out of the vehicle. The car burst into flames soon after.

A Tesla spokesperson told news site Electrek that the company is in “full cooperation with authorities” to “establish the facts of the incident.” No one was injured, and the couple was later picked up by a Tesla Model X.

According to Electrek, previous cases of Tesla vehicles catching fire involved severe impacts, particularly when the battery pack was punctured by debris at high speed. Tesla addressed that issue by adding a titanium shield to the battery pack.
