The blast was posted on Youtube and so far (19) has over 2.8 million views.


The explosion took place in a quarry in the municipality of Al-Jaala, where the owner of the car and his team put 33 kilograms of dynamite in the car.

Katainen claims his Model S was a great car until it broke down.

“It was an excellent car,” but the problems began. “So the error codes arrived.”

The cost of a new Tesla Model S equivalent to your car is about 95 thousand US dollars (541.5 thousand Brazilian reals). The owner thought it was better to blow up the car in exchange for a YouTube rating and a bonus than to get it fixed.

The event wouldn’t be complete without Elon Musk – who obviously didn’t attend. However, the team chartered a helicopter to fly over the site of the explosion and drop a crash test dummy with a picture of the Tesla boss plastered on its face.

The automaker is dealing with some pressure from the US government after the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has a video game built into the car you work with on the go. Tesla responded quickly and agreed to disable the “Passenger Play” feature of 580,000 brand cars.

Last month, Tesla also recalled 11,700 vehicles due to a malfunction in its semi-autopilot driving system, after NHTSA investigated 11 accidents since 2018 involving the company’s vehicles.
