Default Tesla S batteries ~$23,000. Dynamite is cheaper

A little extreme maybe? Surely there had to be a better way

In the lovely little village of Jaala, Finland, there lives a man named Tuomas Katainen, and Tuomas is the owner of a 2013 Tesla Model S. At first, Tuomas enjoyed his Tesla, but then it started throwing all kinds of codes and spent a month in a dealer’s shop, where it was discovered that it needed an entire new battery pack. For 20,000 euros. Luckily, Tuomas had a backup plan in place: blow it up with dynamite.

That video was great though, watched it when it first came out Probably gonna get plenty of ad revenue from it.

I'm not surprised the batteries are that expensive. Might get better when they can produce more, but it's gonna take a bit to get there.

I didn’t think about the revenue. Penny pinching me would have had it up on flea bay

2013 needing a new battery seems it might be a Finland issue.
