  1. So going to Electric cars for the new“Green Deal”, to better our environment, means will be using 6000 gallons of water to put out (1) battery cell 🧐….Wow that’s helping our environment. Idiots!!!!

  2. Do the owners of that now burned car from no fault of their own get a new car after this? Seems to me that Tesla has a BIG problem with exploding batteries that should be included with the warranty
