Angry owner blows up his Tesla (VIDEO) — Analysis
Finnish man shocked at the high cost of his Tesla Model S battery replacement decided it would be better to just blow his car up with an Elon Musk dummy.
The owner said that he lost his faith in Musk’s company after he was told to pay 20,000 euros (around $22,500) for a new battery for his car. His warranty for the Tesla Model S had expired since he was one of the first buyers.
The man was unwilling to part with such a massive sum, instead contacting bloggers from the local Pommijätkät channel on YouTube, who specialize in blowing stuff up.
His Tesla was taken to a picturesque snow-covered sandpit somewhere in Finland’s wilderness and loaded with 30 kilograms of dynamite.
Before the explosion, a mannequin with the face of the world’s richest man, Elon Musk, was placed in the driver’s seat. It had previously been airlifted by helicopter to the spot and then dropped from an elevated altitude into the snow.

It was captured from multiple angles. The electric car became a huge pile of rubble, and everyone involved in the production, even its owner, were thrilled.
The Tesla Model S currently costs almost $95,000 for its dual-motor version. Its three motor variant is around $130,000.
