Dozens Of Original Tesla Roadsters Lost In Gruber Motors Fire

SNIPPETS:

Over the weekend, tragedy struck again at Gruber Motors in Arizona. An electrical failure started a fire in their main service building, and managed to ignite a car’s lithium batteries before the fire department could arrive and put the blaze out, making it very difficult to save anything in the building. Sadly, there were at least 25 original Tesla Roadsters in the building, and they were totally destroyed.

... ...

Why Were There So Many Roadsters In One Place?

If you’re unfamiliar with Gruber Motors, you might wonder why there were so many original Tesla Roadsters in one place. The answer is that they’re one of the few facilities that can work on them. Yes, you can still get some limited work done at a Tesla service center, but if a major component fails, you’re in for replacing the entire component (like a battery pack). This can make a relatively minor problem cost tens of thousands of dollars to resolve , but Gruber’s team can break down something like a battery pack and repair it for a fraction of what Tesla would charge.

For some components, replacement modules simply don’t exist and haven’t been made for over a decade. In those cases, even Tesla can’t help the owner out. This is where Gruber Motors really shines, as it can repair and refurbish expensive components, making a repair possible at all.

As Teslas age, more and more of them end up at Gruber Motors for repair. You can learn more about the problems owners face with aging electric vehicles and the process of repairing them in this video:
