"Out of an abundance of caution", Tesla says, the over-the-air updates will "[revise] charge and thermal management settings". A car of the same model caught fire in a Shanghai car park last month, with security footage showing smoke appearing out of the parked vehicle before the whole car was engulfed in flames.

Previous incidents involving Tesla vehicles catching on fire seem to have happened while the cars were moving. Tesla said in a statement on Wednesday. Tesla earlier confirmed it was examining an incident in Shanghai after a vehicle bearing the company's logo was shown in an April social media video emitting smoke before bursting into flames. These updates will "help further protect the battery and improve battery longevity", Tesla added.

In 2018, a Tesla auto driven by British TV director Michael Morris burst into flames, following another such incident involving a Model S model in France in 2016.

"We now have well over half a million vehicles on the road, which is more than double the number that we had at the beginning of past year, and Tesla's team of battery experts uses that data to thoroughly investigate incidents that occur and understand the root cause", the company said in a statement.

There have been at least 14 instances of Tesla cars catching fire since 2013, a lot of them following a crash.
