Tesla investigating Model S explosion caught on camera

A video of a Tesla Model S spontaneously catching fire in a Shanghai parking garage has started doing the rounds online, prompting the company to investigate. The video recorded at 8.15pm Sunday night (local time) was, according to Weibo users, shot in a car park in Shanghai. A follow-up video reportedly shows three vehicles destroyed. It's not apparent from the video why the Model S began smoking and caught fire.
