Tesla owners upload videos of their vehicles malfunctioning in frigid temperatures

The recent arctic cold froze their door handles and rendered their electric-powered automobiles unable to charge, prompting enraged Tesla owners to slam the firm for producing high-end vehicles that do not perform properly in extreme weather.

Rachel Modestino, a Canadian meteorologist, wrote alongside a now-viral video of her Tesla door handle refusing to budge, “Bet you didn’t consider ice in the design.” On December 23, when temperatures in Ontario dipped to 5 degrees Fahrenheit, the video was shared.

Other Twitter users rushed to her help and offered advice in the video’s comments, which have been viewed over 10 million times.

“Well, that went off…

Not intended as a dig at Elon (I adore my car),” she responded to the rush of reactions. “I learned about unlatching capabilities, defrosting for a longer period of time, and being less gentle with your second child and car covers. [Thank you] for your assistance, be courteous, and Merry Christmas!”

Okay, this occurred… Not meant to dig Elon (I love my car). I just tweeted because I believed it to be an absurd flaw given the price. Unlatching capability, defrosting for a longer period of time, and being less delicate with your second child and vehicle covers were the lessons I learned. Thank you for the assistance, be courteous, and Merry Christmas

However, Modestino was not the only Tesla owner stranded over the weekend. Domenick Nati of Virginia was forced to cancel his holiday plans due to the inability of his Tesla S to charge in the freezing weather.

On Friday night, when temperatures lingered at – 20 degrees Fahrenheit, “two hours passed and not much changed,” the radio presenter told Business Insider.

“It was quite sluggish, and the numbers decreased as the temperature fell. Eventually, it ceased to charge at all.”

Modestino received criticism for her cavalier approach toward the luxury automobile.

Nati, who filmed his problems in a TikTok video, subsequently attempted to charge the vehicle at home, with similarly disappointing results.

Nati was unable to spend Christmas Day with his son because neither Uber nor Lyft operated in his neighborhood.

According to Business Insider, he attempted to reach Tesla for assistance but received no response.

Complaints about the Tesla model’s cold weather performance are the latest weakness in the armor of the renewable energy automobile behemoth, whose stock price continues to tumble as CEO Elon Musk shifts his attention to his new position at Twitter.

However, in an email sent to staff on Wednesday, Musk warned against the “stock market hysteria.” He ordered employees to use every effort to deliver autos by the end of the quarter.

“Please go above and beyond for the next few days, and if at all feasible, volunteer to assist with delivery. It will have a significant impact!” he wrote
