Tesla denies unintended acceleration claim, alleges the action was brought by a financial speculator

Electric car specialist Tesla has emphatically denied its vehicles are subject to “unintended acceleration”, claiming the petition tabled yesterday is “completely false” and was started by a financial speculator who would benefit if Tesla’s share price tanked.
