The Tesla – Mercedes war began before Dr. Z himself (Dieter Zetsche, CEO Mercedes – n.r.) officially declared so. The first soldier who ventured to attack the eco bastion called Tesla was the driver of a previous generation Mercedes SLK.
He literally destroyed a Tesla showroom placed in the heart of the American metropolis San Francisco. The accident occurred this past weekend when the silver SLK came out of the road in a dangerous curve because of excessive speed, kicking a tree, a mailbox and a traffic sign before stopping into the Tesla showroom.
The store that hosted a copy of the Tesla Model X SUV did not suffer any major damage, with only the showcase and main entrance among the wreckage. In contrast, the Mercedes ended more wounded, the front of the German roadster being completely destroyed.
