Customer smashes windshield

30 Jun, 2014

BN-DL527_2tesla_E_20140627075023Minutes after taking delivery of a white Tesla Model S in Beijing, Yu Xinquan took a wrench and smashes the front windshield of the one million yuan (about $173,600) vehicle.  The disgruntled owner expected to be one of the first in China to take delivery of the Model S when he placed his order last October and became furious with Tesla when he discovered that his car had not even been built when others in the country had already received their cars. Tesla offered the use of one of their showroom cars until the customers car was ready for delivery, but Mr. Xinquan refused.
