Tesla Model S Gas Pedal Snaps Off After Driver Tries Showing Off Launch Mode
One Tesla owner got a big shock yesterday as his accelerator pedal snapped off while driving.
The story comes from user benjiejr on the Tesla Motor Club forum. He was showing off his Model S P85D to a friend and his nephew. After going through the car’s features it was time to show off the massive acceleration of the P85D’s twin electric motors and 503 horsepower.“I turned around and was going to do another launch, but this time without Launch Mode – just stomp on the pedal – like I do most often. When I punched it, the accelerator pedal broke off.”
