It’s mentioned that karma is usually a fairly vengeful factor. But when a current Tesla crash in China is any indication, karma may be fairly darn ironic and humorous too. This was highlighted in China when a Mannequin 3 was hit by an MG6 driver who was mocking the electrical automobile maker for its alleged and debunked “brake failure” points.
Final yr, Tesla China was hit by a wave of “brake failure” claims following a high-profile protest on the Shanghai Auto Present. Tesla China’s authorized division responded by taking motion towards each media retailers and social media influencers who jumped on the “brake failure” bandwagon. It didn’t take lengthy earlier than news outlets and social media influencers alike issued public apologies admitting that their “brake failure” claims and “demonstrations” had been false.
Regardless of this, nevertheless, the cloud of the “brake failure” controversy towards Tesla China nonetheless stays considerably, a lot in order that some drivers have positioned stickers on their automobiles mocking the electrical automobile maker. One in all these was the driving force of a inexperienced MG6, who positioned a sticker on the automobile’s rear trunk that roughly learn, “So as to forestall rear-end collision brought on by Tesla brake failure, please honor Tesla homeowners to overhaul first.”
As may very well be seen in a dashcam recording of the incident, a Tesla Mannequin 3 was minding its personal enterprise when the inexperienced MG6 sedan tried and miscalculated an overtaking maneuver. This triggered the MG6 to slam into the Mannequin 3. Now, quite a few crashes over time have proven that crashing right into a Tesla isn’t any get together. Even sedans just like the Mannequin 3 are heavy automobiles, so hitting one at speed most likely feels just like the automotive equal of hitting the largest child in school.
With this in thoughts, the MG6 ended up going uncontrolled. Photographs posted on Chinese language social media websites confirmed the now-totaled MG6 flipped over, with its Tesla “Brake failure” sticker bared for everybody to see. If that’s not instantaneous karma, I don’t know what’s.
However that’s not all there’s to this story.
Additional pictures of the accident’s aftermath confirmed that the Mannequin 3 solely had minor damages from its crash with the MG6. The Tesla had some nasty scratches on its entrance finish, however the total injury didn’t appear too main. What’s funnier, nevertheless, was the truth that the Mannequin 3 driver truly had a self-deprecating Tesla “brake failure” sticker on the all-electric sedan’s rear trunk as effectively. The Tesla driver’s sticker roughly learn, “Brake Failure – Please Keep Away From Me.”
Contemplating the circumstances of the accident, netizens in China have dubbed the incident the “funniest cat accident in China.” Seems Elon Musk was proper — destiny does love irony.
