A Tesla driver’s encounter with a kangaroo resulting in a $500 incident underscores a costly aspect of a popular EV.

Tesla cars have held their status as the top choice for electric vehicles on Australian roads for quite some time. Despite occasional grievances from drivers, the majority of buyers are enthusiastic about extolling the fleet’s cutting-edge technology. However, a recent incident experienced by one driver has brought attention to a costly aspect of this advanced technology.

On Tuesday, the driver encountered a kangaroo just before 6 am while traveling along a rural road in NSW, triggering a safety feature known as ‘active hood’. This feature causes the rear portion of the bonnet to pop up, mitigating the impact on any object approaching the car while also reducing damage to the vehicle itself.
