A Finn who was dissatisfied with a Tesla Model S electric vehicle he had bought decided to set the car on fire after learning that it would cost $ 22,000 to repair its battery.
The man, Tuomas Katainen, took his vehicle to a Tesla service center when he observed that the instrument cluster in his Model S was starting to display several error codes.
After a month-long inspection, he was told the only solution to the problem was to replace the entire battery pack at a cost of $ 22,500.
Katainen also said she was told that her eight-year car warranty has also expired.
In a YouTube video he said, “So I told them I was coming to get my car. And now I’m going to explore the whole car because apparently there was no warranty or anything.
“There is nothing left. Absolutely nothing,” Katainen said to the camera.
“I have never enjoyed the Tesla so much! And also, maybe I’m the first person in the world to blow up a Tesla. So maybe, made a little history.
The video which has been viewed over a million times shows a doll compared to Tesla CEO Elon Musk placed in the car.
