Chimicles & Tikellis is investigating a potential class action lawsuit on behalf of Tesla Roadster vehicle owners and lessees. These electric vehicles may suffer from a design defect in which they become immobile and cannot be started, pushed, or towed when the battery becomes completely discharged. A Tesla vehicle in this condition has also been referred to as a “brick”. Vehicle owners and lessees may experience a complete discharge of the battery when simply leaving the vehicle at the airport or other storage-like facility without access to charge the vehicle.
Some owners and lessees may have been required to undergo costly repairs of the battery and related items due to this potential design defect. If you have experienced any of the above problems with your Tesla Roadster please contact the attorneys below.
