In a bizarre way of showing displeasure over Tesla's aftersales service, a man destroyed his electric car using a 30kg dynamite.
Times Now News reports that the car owner identified as Tuomas Katainen carried out the demolition of his car in Jaala, an ice-covered village in the Kymenlaakso region of Finland.
Why he actually destroyed the car?
Tuomas displeasure is owing to the amount of repairing his faulty car cost. The Finnish had taken the car to a Tesla service centre to get it fixed after it developed multiple error codes in the instrument's cluster.

To his surprise, he would be told after the car had spent a month at the service centre that the repairs would be incomplete if the whip's entire battery pack isn't fixed and that getting the battery changed will cost €20,000 (N9.3 million).
His matter was made worse because the car's warranty had expired given that it was 8 years old.
This consequently informed his decision to destroy the car.
He had the demolition recorded
Tuomas ensured the demolition exercise was recorded and made a mockery of Tesla CEO and the world richest man Elon Musk by placing an effigy of him inside the car before it was destroyed.
A video capturing the demolition was shared on YouTube by Pommijatkat.
"It would cost me at least 20,000 Euros. So, I told them I am coming to pick up my car. And now I am going to explode the whole car away because apparently there was no guarantee or anything," Tuomas said in the video as the car was being set up for demolition.

His best friend innocently consented only to remove the blindfold to find out that Fredo had wrecked his car badly.
A video capturing the act showed Fredo first throwing a big hammer over the car's windscreen before going ahead to smash other parts of the car with a fridge.
