A brand new Tesla Model S abruptly caught fire while prospective buyers were test-driving it as part of a promotional event organized by the company.

A low-resolution photo of the car burning to the ground was published earlier today on Reddit by a user who received it via WhatsApp.

3dkSdkvDskReddit, the user who posted the picture, explains that the incident took place in Biarritz, a large city located in southwestern France.

A couple test-driving the car with a Tesla saleswoman on board suddenly heard a loud noise, though they claim that it wasn t an explosion.

They kept driving, but the saleswoman asked them to pull over a few moments later when the S began displaying a problem with charging error message.

Thankfully, the three occupants walked away from the car without injury.
