  • For those that were alarmed by our reports over the last three weeks of Teslas in China and Hong Kong appearing to spontaneously combust, don’t worry: there’s a software update for that.
  • Tesla has started putting out a software update that will change battery charge and thermal management settings in Model S sedans and Model X SUVs.
  • Just weeks after a Tesla Model S appeared to spontaneously combust in a parking garage in China, a Tesla Motors Club forum post pointed out what looked to be another incident of a Tesla catching fire while parked – this time in Hong Kong.
