Tesla has said it is updating the battery software in some of its models following two recent incidents where cars caught fire.

The electric carmaker said it would soon begin rolling out the software update on Model S and Model X vehicles.

It follows reports that a parked car caught fire in Hong Kong, following a similar incident in Shanghai.

While Tesla is still investigating the incidents, the firm is taking action “out of an abundance of caution”.

In a statement, the carmaker said: “As we continue our investigation of the root cause… we are revising charge and thermal management settings on Model S and Model X vehicles via an over-the-air software update that will begin rolling out today, to help further protect the battery and improve battery longevity.”
