Drivers were left fuming in the biggest shipping center in England after a Tesla car ran out of battery and caused a traffic for 3 straight hours.
The car park of London’s Westfield Shopping Centre was blocked for 3 hours on November 3, 2021, after the Tesla ran out of battery.
A shopper named Henry took the incident on Reddit to show people the downsides of having a Tesla car.
He said in the post:
Perfect, a Tesla ran out of battery and stopped at the ramp of a 5-story car park at Westfield. It has been three hours and counting.
Talking about the car, he said:
The Tesla is completely dead and it is in parking mode. The management team rumbling about their solution and basically there is nothing they can do. At the end, all the cars reversed out from a 5 story [sic] winding ramp. Fab day.
A spokesperson for the London’s Westfield Shopping Centre released a statement about the incident.
A customer’s Tesla vehicle broke down on the entry ramp of the car park at around 6pm due to an empty battery. Westfield London’s car park team assisted the broken down vehicle and guided 10 vehicles that were behind the Tesla around it. Tesla car park assistance then arrived on site to support the broken down vehicle.
That’s one sad thing to happen, right?
