After a month in the Tesla workshop, Katainen got the message that nothing could be done with his Model S, the battery pack had to be replaced. Cost: 20,000 euros. “Apparently there is no guarantee or anything like that,” said Tuomas Katainen. That’s why he decided to blow up the car – with 30 kilos of dynamite and an Elon Musk doll in the driver’s seat. We don’t know whether the story is true, but the demolition is impressive. Most of the Model S is pulverized within seconds, The debris is flying extremely high, a massive pressure wave can be seen in slow motion. Only a single wheel seems to have remained intact in the explosion, otherwise all that remains of the Tesla is a heap of deformed sheet metal parts and thousands of splinters.
