Tesla Model S explodes in Chinese car parking
Asia   The cause of the blaze and the value of the property damaged were still unclear

Tesla has launched an investigation after one of its cars exploded in a car park in Shanghai on Sunday night.

The local fire department said a Model S parked in an underground car park in Xujiahui burst into flames a few seconds after smoke started billowing from the bottom of a car.

The cause of the blaze and the value of the property damaged were still unclear, it said.

Tesla, which is building a huge factory on the outskirts of Shanghai, said on Monday that it had sent a team to investigate the incident.

According to the footage, the Tesla was burned so badly that only the frame remained.

The explosion occurred at about 8.15pm, roughly 30 minutes after the owner, a man surnamed Huang, parked the car and went to his flat upstairs, the Xinmin Evening News reported.
