"The automaker confirmed Thursday that a fire burned up one of its $70,000-plus Model S hatchbacks. It was the third such incident in five weeks and triggered calls for a federal safety investigation." "Meanwhile, car shopping website and auto reviewer Edmunds.com said its has encountered mechanical problems in its Tesla that have forced the replacement of numerous parts, including the entire drivetrain."

"The latest fire was after a crash Wednesday near Smyrna, Tenn. That followed fires in two other Model S hatchbacks, the first in Seattle and the second in Mexico. Both cars were in crashes, and the fires injured no one." "Normally, car fires don't influence investors. There are about 150,000 annually, according to the National Fire Protection Assn. However, safety officials have been tracking fires in electric cars, as well as airplanes, computers and other equipment, out of concern that lithium-ion battery systems might be prone to fires." "But three fires associated with crashes of new cars — as opposed to battered, older gasoline vehicles produced under less-stringent safety standards — are a matter of concern, said Clarence Ditlow, executive director for the Center for Auto Safety."
