Sold Out - February 2024 Education Night - Case Study: Tesla Model 3 Incident




When a Tesla Model 3 hit road debris outside Goulburn, NSW, the high voltage lithium-ion battery pack went into thermal runaway, leading to a highly publicised, and extended duration incident for Rural Fire Service and Fire Rescue NSW crews.

 

In a world-first, EV FireSafe tore down the vehicle in partnership with Tesla. They removed the battery pack with its ~4000 battery cells to establish what went wrong, how far the fire had propagated, and created a timeline of events for the benefit of responders globally. The EV FireSafe team will share these learnings with us at our February Education Night.
