Btw, looks like Tesla isn't the only EV maker in Jalopnik's sites. Sensationalism at its finest: Leaked Document Shows Fisker Has More Issues Than Fiery Cars
The document they referenced is neither "leaked" nor "confidential." I guess the blogosphere really has no sense of balance or fairness.
more than a dozen fiskers burned to a crisp after being submerged in seawater during storm sandy:

Hard to blame this on the owner.

Submersion in salt water. I suppose it could have shorted out the battery pack or some other electricals. But you'd think they could have designed around such a catastrophic failure mode. With the Roadster, Tesla designed in immersion sensors that are supposed to offer some form of protection. I wonder if such a failure could happen to a Roadster or Model S.
My concern is that this can scare a lot of people away from EVs. I'd like to see Tesla toss an S into a water tank to show how it doesn't explode or catch on fire. But just wait until mine is built. Can't handle anymore wait anxiety!!
