Reuters turned to Tesla for comments, however, the tech giant has refused to make a statement.

The incident comes weeks after another Tesla car exploded in the commercial hub of Shanghai. Following the incident, Tesla sent a team of specialists to investigate the matter.

The company has been claiming that its electric vehicles are ten times less likely to catch fire than petrol cars.
