Posted October 24, 2018 05:19:22Tesla’s Model S has been the subject of many controversies, and the company has been criticized for not keeping its cars safe.
The Model S’ first safety issue in September was caused by a toddler who climbed inside the car, causing the car to catch fire.
Tesla’s Chief Safety Officer John Krafcik apologized to the toddler’s family and said the company would investigate the incident and make changes.
Tesla has since offered to reimburse the family for any expenses the toddler incurred in his or her initial accident, and Krafviks apology has been widely praised.
A few months later, in October 2018, a Model S owner caught fire inside the vehicle, killing the toddler.
Tesla has faced several controversies over the past several years.
In 2018, the company received a $1.9 billion federal bailout, which was a boon to Tesla’s bottom line, but it also contributed to the company’s bankruptcy.
Tesla faced accusations of stealing intellectual property from carmakers and even threatened to stop selling its cars if it was not given a bailout.
The company eventually won the bailout and has since ramped up its carmaking efforts, but the company still faces criticism from some quarters.
Read more Tesla is now making another safety issue public for the Model S, this time a toddler caught in the backseat of a Model X. In an interview with a local television station, the toddler was reportedly stuck in the front seat and unable to reach for a cellphone, which he reportedly tried to use as a shield to protect himself.
A photo of the toddler shows him strapped to the back of the Model X while it was still on its roof.
According to a Tesla spokesperson, the Model C is designed to be a “driver’s seat,” and is therefore capable of handling a toddler with a child in the car.
It also features an electric assist feature that can be turned on in certain situations.
The spokesperson told Business Insider that Tesla will review its Model X vehicle with the child’s mother to ensure that she is able to safely operate the vehicle.
