Tesla Motors Inc (TSLA) Focused On Safety

wall-street-etfTesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) may be facing a safety investigation for its Model S fires, but the company remains focused on efforts to increase the safety of its cars. The latest safety feature added by the automaker is a software update that automatically reduces voltage while charging a Model S, in case the input power witnesses fluctuations.

The software update is apparently in response to the recent garage fire in Irvine, Calif., which took place when a Model S was being charged on a wall socket. While Tesla declared that over-heating of the Model S charging system was not responsible for the fire, it released the new software update, which will automatically reduce charging current by 25% in case of unexpected fluctuations in power while charging.

The move will prevent the battery from catching fire even when there is a problem in the wiring system outside the car. This will make it to charge the car in unfamiliar places.
