One element made it possible to defuse the situation and calm this angry driver. When the latter rushed in the direction of this Tesla, he quickly found himself in a dead end.
Not only were the doors locked, but the handles were above all inaccessible. Because yes, if most current cars have a central locking system that activates after a few meters traveled, Teslas have a little something extra in this kind of situation.
Without being able to access the door handle, our white-hot driver finally calmed down before turning on his heels.
There has been a lot on the news lately how dangerous the Tesla door handles are. But – nobody ever talks about how great it is to have hidden door handles when a road rager approaches your car. It’s brilliant! @you’re here @elonmusk pic.twitter.com/ZDJC221oI0

It helps !
It must be recognized that in such a situation, the handles designated by Tesla are of great use. But beware, this is not always the case. Some drivers have already experienced bugs literally preventing them from entering their own car…
