#Tesla #Bricked: The Real Facts Behind The Scary Stuff

Tesla Motors released a statement today in response to TheUnderstatement’s scaremongering story.

All automobiles require some level of owner care.

For example, combustion vehicles require regular oil changes or the engine will be destroyed.

Electric vehicles should be plugged in and charging when not in use for maximum performance.

However, Tesla avoids this problem in virtually all instances with numerous counter-measures.

Tesla batteries can remain unplugged for weeks (or even months), without reaching zero state of charge.

Owners of Roadster 2.0 and all subsequent Tesla products can request that their vehicle alert Tesla if the batteries State Of Charge falls to a low level.

All Tesla vehicles emit various visual and audible warnings if the battery pack falls below 5 percent SOC.
