Two Tesla Model S On Fire At Super Charger Station In Shanghai, China

Two Tesla Model S electric cars caught fire at Tesla’s Shanghai Jinqiao super charging station. Nobody got hurt but the cars were heavily damaged. The accident happened four days ago in the afternoon of March 4. What caused the fire is yet unknown.

The fire started in a P85, seen here on the left side. This car was not near or connected to a super charger. The fire then engulfed another Model S, on the right, which was parked next to a super charger, although it is unclear whether it was charging. Note the fire extinguishers in the foreground, at least 10 of them. The charging station was apparently not equipped with any heavier fire fighting equipment.

First Tesla Model X Spotted On The Road In China

First Tesla Model X On The Road In China

The very first Tesla Model X has been seen on the road in China, pictured here in the wet in the great and rainy city of Shanghai. This particular car is a 90D, painted in a blue kind of silver and fitted with privacy glass around the rear compartment. The Model X was launched on the Chinese car market in early May and deliveries will start late this month.

The 90D retails for 961,000 yuan, the P90D for 1.15 million yuan, and the China-only Signature Red does a whopping 1.47 million yuan. That translates to $147,000, $176,000, and $225,000 respectively. For comparison, in the U.S. the 95D costs $95,500 and the P90D $115,500.

The enormous difference is caused partly by import taxes, counting for about one third of the price, and partly by healthy entrepreneurship. Chinese car buyers are very eager to pay more to get their hands on a Model X, and Tesla is well aware of that.
