In a shocking turn of events, a Finnish man named Toumas Katainen decided to take extreme measures when faced with the cost of replacing his Tesla's battery.

Katainen, who owned a 2013 Tesla model, was informed that a new battery would cost him 20,000 euros.

Unwilling to pay the hefty price, Katainen opted for a more explosive solution.

He purchased 30 kilograms of dynamite and strategically placed it around his vehicle. Adding a touch of satire to his act, he also placed a doll inside the car, meant to represent Tesla founder Elon Musk.

Katainen then ignited the dynamite, resulting in a spectacular explosion that obliterated his electric vehicle.

The entire event was captured on video, showcasing the lengths some are willing to go to express their dissatisfaction.

The incident has raised questions about the affordability of electric vehicle maintenance and the extreme actions some individuals may take when faced with high costs.
