The world’s largest insurance company faked a Tesla crash test and used fireworks to force “self-ignition”
“Furthermore, crash tests with Tesla branded vehicles did not cause a potential battery fire under the vehicle, which may be the opposite of what the captured images suggest. We should explicitly mention this fact in our post-test communications. , especially in the press release and provided images.”
AXA also said, “This test to illustrate the so-called risk should have been designed differently. We made it clear in the press release that, according to AXA Switzerland’s statistics, electric vehicles are no more likely to catch fire than conventional combustion engine vehicles.”
“However, the pictures we released were taken out of context, leading to misunderstandings.We apologize, and we’ll re-analyze this year’s crash tests in detail to learn from them. “
