The owner of a brand new Tesla Model S crashed his electric vehicle literally seconds after picking it up.

Anxious to take the car for a quick run after picking it up, the owner of this Tesla Model S managed to crash it even before leaving the dealership. It happened a few days ago at Tesla's manufacturing facilities in Freemont, California and as you can see the vehicle suffered some considerable amount of damage prior to exiting Tesla's store & delivery center.

It is believed the driver hit the accelerator pedal instead of the brake and almost drove through the showroom floor. The vehicle frontally collided with a big "Tesla Store & Delivery Center" sign so now it will remain in Tesla's custody for a while to receive the necessary repairs.
